Well this morning is leading to another great day. I will go down and check out my cabbage I have growing over the winter months in the greenhouse garden bed, they are growing but slow for there is no heat in there and I wanted to experiment to see what would happen. I go down and water every so often and that's about it. Supposed to be about 70 again today and only light winds. Lots of fires here yesterday just one fire burned 2000 acres and we had 9 different fires. I might even clean the greenhouse up a little before next month for that's when all my seeding starts.

Was windy here too, blowing the dog door flap open. Think it calmed down some now.

Just took my daily walk for my heart to repair and the wind was something else.  It was 60 and climbing for 70 . I can't do anything anyways for it's getting cold again and supposed to snow on Thur. to early for gardening for me.

Raining buckets and only in the 30s today. Good day to be hanging in the easy chair all day dreaming of gardening, looking thru the seed catalogs.

I will plant more geraniums around just out side the shade house, they attract the aphids and white fly and might and its a big might, help with keeping then off the veggies. I,d love to get some beneficial bugs, but don,t know where I would get them. I guess I could google it and see if there is anywhere close to buy them. There some lady bugs and praying mantis in the garden but not enough to control.

Wet and rainy here & 34 degrees.

White flies are a different pest. Blue is an ok dog I don't like the barking all the time dogs after putting up w/them for the past 20 yrs in town. She does think she is a lap dog but she is way to big for that. She also sneezes on me and licks me all the time. Grrrrr.

I just quit growing the things that I know attract the nasty bugs. Do you use beneficial nematodes? They are supposed to help with pests. As soon as I can afford to get some I will be getting them. Beneficial wasps would be good to get too, praying mantis and green lace wings.

Yes Vicky the awful grey ones , they are thick, yuck. Wow you have a basement, that will be great to set up for winter growing or storing. A basement is a rare thing in Australia, some really old houses have cellars or cool rooms under the house, which were used before refrigeration.In the cyclone areas they would have under ground bunkers , but were I am we don,t get cyclones or tornadoes.  LOL, Vicky is dog sitting, you don,t like dogs. Cabbage , broccoli  and Brussels sprouts are no good after the temp stays above 15c , they are always infested with aphids  and white fly are they the same thing , not sure. Winter is better here for these crops. I have Chinese cabbage in and they don,t seem to getting infested as much.

Looking good. Are they the big gray ones eating your broccoli? Hate those things. Thanks for the pics I am so ready to be gardening I HATE WINTER! I finally got my potting tub thing on the back porch so I could redo the house plants that almost croaked while I was gone dog sitting last time. I filled up some plastic green tub looking planters that I am going to try to grow salad in under lights when I get back home next /Tues. Dog sitting for an other week and doing my reg cleaning jobs this week. Will be starting seeds some time soon too. Need to clean the basement and get some tables set up under grow lights.
