Autumn Storms

Scarecrow's Log: 15:03:2009:

Luckydog decided to harvest 'her' bunch of grapes this week!
Each year she 'saves' a bunch just for herself.

Temperatures this week:
Lowest Min 6.9C
Highest Max 30.1C
Rain 7.5mm



During Thursday the clouds were building up
...by evening thunder was rumbling
and it had started to rain.
We woke next morning to find
7.5mm in our rain gauge. mrgreenmrgreenmrgreen

Planting:
Angela's Blue Climbing Pea described in the Eden Seed catalogue as:
"Attractive purple bi-colour flower, purple podded climbing pea for shelling."

Potted up many punnets of Red Onions from those home saved seeds I sowed at the end of February.
Potted up cuttings taken earlier in the season:
Perennial Chamomile Chamaemelum nobile
Curry Bush Helichrysum italicum
Pink Correa

Potted on more of the Brassica seedlings.

The Roi de Carouby Snow Peas are up and growing...

...as are those Blue Bantam Dwarf Peas out on Bed 2.

The Brassica seedlings on Bed 3
are powering away, getting some good growth on
before our cold weather hits.
From the front you can see:
Sugarloaf Cabbage then Romanesco Broccoli,
Violet Sicilian Cauliflower.
The Mini Cauliflower and Red Drumhead Cabbage
are in the distance at the back.
