Well it's almost the end of January, which here in Queensland means the middle of the wet season and Summer. It's gone from hot and dry to hot and wet in about a week, and we have a cyclone on the way bringing lots of rain and wind. It's not really great gardening weather, and my new seedlings, especially the lettuces are not happy.
This is what I came home to this afternoon - one banana tree down and the tarp almost off the chook dome.
If you are elsewhere in Australia, according to the Women's Weekly from January 1955 Mid-Summer is the time to sow cauliflowers and get your DDT spray ready!
How's the weather where you are? Do you garden?
