  • Day 83 - Monthly RoundupHello everybody! It's been a busy time around here. On top of all of my work and study, it's been a strange month weatherwise.No temperature records were set, but we did receive a lot of rainfall. The month's total 272.4mm broke the 2000s record of 2...
  • Day 72 - More Rain, Less Spring OnionsIf you live around Brisbane, you will have experienced the torrential downpour that we had on Tuesday. It was the most rain in a 24 hour period since 2001, and caused mayhem. In my experience, when we have extreme weather it usually affects suburbs o...
  • Day 65 - The Effect of Rain
    on Feb 12, 2010 in Spring Onion Jalapeno Water Chilli
    We all know that without water our crops will die. However, I would much prefer that when rain comes it is accompanied by at least a few hours of sunshine each day. The effect that rain without sunshine has is striking: last week I cut 12g of spring...
  • Day 61 - What's New
    on Feb 9, 2010 in Spring Onion Weather
    Not much is new in the Australian Kitchen Garden. I've gone back to school (teaching) and am almost back at university (doctorate), so I'm letting the garden do it's thing. In some ways it's going to be really good for the garden - I tend to pick any...
  • Day 58 - The Spring Onion Experiment: Part 3
    on Feb 5, 2010 in Spring Onion
    Over the previous week, I've been taking measurements of my spring onions to see how I should be harvesting. I grew two groups of crops, one harvested back to the base and one harvested so that there were shoot stumps remaining.Day 2: No Stumps: 5.6c...
  • Day 56 - It's Really That Quick!
    on Feb 3, 2010 in Spring Onion
    My spring onions are loving life at the moment. The picture below was taken one day after they were cut back to nothing - in other words, almost everything green is less than 24 hours old. Four days later, they are still flourishing. My wife poi...
  • Day 52 - Monthly RoundupWeatherwise, not much happened this month. In contrast to my predictions of rain, rain and more rain it's been quite dry with only 47.8mm of rain (compared with a 2000 - 2009 average of 118.9mm). No temperature records were set, and the averages were...
  • Day 53 - The Spring Onion Experiment: Part 2
    on Feb 1, 2010 in Spring Onion
    After the success of the previous spring onion experiment, I decided to do a little more investigation. But first a little background information. My spring onion bases that I planted back at the beginning of the month looked like a stick with roots.
  • Day 50 - Why My Coriander Bolted: Part 2
    on Jan 30, 2010 in Coriander
    I've been reading up about coriander recently, as it's been my only failure as a crop so far. At the beginning it wouldn't stand up and when it did it went to seed almost straight away. It now appears that three things contrubuted to this:Coriander h...
  • Day 40 - Extreme Weather: Part 1
    on Jan 30, 2010 in Weather
    It wasn't the extreme weather that I was expecting, however. Yesterday we experienced our biggest drop in temperature (this year) from the hottest part of the day to the coolest part of the night. The peak temperature was 35.1 and the low point was 1...
