Overwhelmed.

Here we go again!

Has someone pushed repeat on last year?

I seem to remember a dry winter and a long hot Spring, just like this one.

Here it is nearly half way through November and I'm sure my total rainfall since August wouldn't add up to a total of 25mm.

And if that isn't bad enough nearly everyday is 30c plus, 37 Saturday and 34 Sunday.

And it becomes crunch time. Do I walk away from the garden or do I persevere with the watering and the mulching. Water is expensive and time consuming but a little raijn or a storm or two would take off a lot of pressure.

I've already stopped sowing any more seeds.

I just don't know what to do.

Maybe it'll rain again, sometime soon.

Cheers


Stewart.

I am on the same page as you Stewart. We are heading into a repeat of last summer plus my free time has been reduced with us now raising our granddaughter. I have made the decision to cut my losses and not plant anymore until late summer. Fortunately I can go into our weekly market and purchase home grown fruit and vegies - the cost of failed seedlings and water and time is greater than the purchase cost at the market. Good luck with your decision making!
