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.

All growing well and the rain will help, climbing beans are taking over the shade house, the broccoli will have to go, being eaten by aphids, very bad pests.

Tomato plants doing well, still no ripe ones, but plenty green ones. I have cut them back off the ground so hopefully they will not get fungus from the rain.

We had 3 inchs of rain in 24 hours, that will certainly green things up again. Very unusually weather for us, but not complaining. if we get follow up rain it will make our summer quite tropical compared to last year with no rain for 5 months. Ha crazy.

Enjoy your beans & bbq.

Comment by Vicky Myers on January 8, 2015 at 11:52pm

We pretty much have been in the fog for a couple of days with some drizzle. We have to enjoy gardening thru you. I had an other 2 day migraine finally got out of the house to help Nancy today and get some more groceries.

I have heaps of yellow butter beans to be picked, I will have to wait for a break in the rain and pick them. Going to a BBQ tea tonight with the Orchid Club, I might have to take a jacket, crazy weather.
