It has also been extremely dry. The last time it rained was mid July. I have raised a lot of seeds and have potted them on into indervidual pots but all this hot dry weather is making it hard to keep them from suffering.
Yesterday we had a scorcher of a day with the below temperature of 37 degrees registering at 2 pm. It was one of those days that you pray for rain. People often talk about the heat being oppressive and the air feeling heavy. Today I knew exactly what they mean.
A few weeks ago one of our neighbours kindly came and slashed our back paddock to get rid of all the dead grass and thatch. Since then we have watering it from our bore and it has been greening up nicely. So this rain just topped it up.
