Daylight Savings begins

Frost on the hill.

A chilly start to day 2 of October and the new period of daylight savings, it’s -1 outside and quite frosty.  I wonder how many tomatoes were burnt this morning.  None of ours that’s for sure, we only have 6 tiny seedlings that emerged a couple of days ago and they are inside under a fluoro.

Everything else that may be fragile that is outside is against the wall of the house, all except for one Vietnamese mint which may not survive, but I took 9 cuttings from him before I transplanted him out.


What a wet winter we are having…

Another rainy morning in paradise

So far we’ve had over 200mm this winter, not sure what the average is for this part of Tassie, may edit it in if I can ‘google’ up some records.  I do love my wet weather gear and my gumboots though. It sure feels wet!

We have been recording rainfall since we moved in last October (de ja vu – my Dad recorded rain for 10 years in Northern New South Wales), on my wish list is a max/min thermometer so we can start to get a feel for temperatures as well. Oh and the big wish list is a good sized dam at the lowest point of the property so we can hold some of this water here.
