The weather this past week has been simply appalling. It has rarely stopped raining for more than a couple of hours, and even when it has the humidity has been terrible.

Moss is already starting to grow in the low bits of the garden and if the ground doesn’t dry soon I may have a mosquito problem.

As a result, the vege garden is looking very sad. The tomatoes don’t like the damp and caterpillars have been having a field day on the them, as well as the capsicums, parseley, strawberries and the orange tree. I haven’t been able to spray because of the wet.

So far though, the cucumber vine is looking good and the lime tree appears immune to whatever bug is ravaging the orange tree.

Fingers crossed!
