Here in QLD we have a very short winter and as this is only the second full winter we have been on the farm I am still trying to work out the seasons and weather cycles. So far it seems like we get a 6 month Summer, and 2 months each of Autumn, Winter and Spring but it will take a few more years to really work it out.
Last year I was late in getting my seeds going and before I knew it spring had been and gone and summer was upon us. Two things have happened in the garden this week to make me think Spring is very much here and I need to get a move on with my seed planting.
How do I know...
The first Asparagus spear has emerged, and
the Mulberry is producing fruit.
So I have planted out a few seeds already and I have more to go in. Better get a move on I think.
