Dry, Dry, Dry
And my garden looks well and truly sick of summer.
My garden is dry, dry, dry. And our water tank is empty. I know I should have succession planted but I haven't. I did an initial excited planting before Christmas and that was it. And now I have great patches of dry, barren un-mulched dirt where the corn once was or the silverbeet that went to seed has been pulled. And I have wilty tomato and bean plants - still producing but looking nasty and dry.
The avocado tree is wilty from too many scorchy, hot days. My first ever red ripened capsicum has what looks to my untrained eye a nasty sunburn and even hardy herbs like the rosemary are looking unhappy.
