A few speckles here and there, nothing to write home about. Hopefully it picks up tomorrow (Brisbane northside).

Lucky you, Mary. Still haven't had much to speak of, forecast for today indicated storms and showers, maybe it will build up by this afternoon. Humidity around has been good at least, I find it helps with my fig cuttings in the little makeshift greenhouse I have going.

The best thing about this rain is seeing the toddlers staring at it with their mouth open and eyes wide.

Haha, what a difference a week makes! Last week my yard was a dustbowl. Today we had a months worth or rain in 10 minutes. And we weren't in the thick of it. Filled a medium wheelbarrow in minutes. And there are more to come.

Yeah I reckon. Had an absolute inundation yesterday, filled the water tank up 3/4 from virtual emptiness (was literally going to call the water delivery man that day). Didn't get much more last night though.

Sorry Mike looks like you guys are going to bake tomorrow again, are the mangosteens standing up to the high UV, ouch!!!. Things are really taking off down here. Grums are swelling up flower buds. Trouble is all this wet is unsustainable down here where as for you its the norm.Hows the new generation of imports doing Mike settled in I hope. Have a great weekend.

I could use the Brisbane showers but not the Sydney hail. It is dead still here and outside it is 26c and 87% humidity right now.David I gave most away a couple of times in the last couple of months to make way for the next lots. I really need to stop.
My yellow grumis are setting fruit,the big mangosteen has flower buds,the sabara jabs are wildly fruiting and the spirito santensis jab has lots of small fruit.

No showers here, just temporary creek in backyard forming 10 minute bursts. We are supposed to get another 100mm in the next week. Sugar apple, atemoya, rollinia and soursop have all set well since the rain has started... Not the best for the ARKP mangoes though, which I should have sprayed, but I wasn't anticipating this sort of wet a few weeks back.

All my mangoes have dropped their little fruits following an inundation earlier in the week. They are only small trees, this year is probably the first they have fruited so I'm not too disapointed.

I'm sure if I logged how often BOM got it wrong it would be a fairly solid indictment of the parking lot science that meteorology is. Not denigrating it, but in the end you just can't predict the weather.

Didn't get much more than a sprinkle all of yesterday, despite all appearances being almost apocalyptic, and radars lighting up like christmas trees on BOM and Willy Weather. Thought for sure we were in for a big one, but no cigar.

BJ if you want one of those figs you'll have to let me know soon, if you can.

cheers

Had a bad storm yesterday arve, got 71mm in about two hours.
It started with pea-size hail, then violent wind, rain, lightning etc.
It knocked over some of my sweet corn, and a beetle bark tree (I think). See pics.
We certainly needed the rain tho :-)
Haven't checked my tiny avocados yet, I'd say they didn't fare too well with that strong wind! :-(

Mike, dust and honey don't sound good; poor you :) We've been wet for days now and more to come but we've had months of dry too so it's welcoming. I'm sure you'll have your share and you'll be complaining of your garden being washed away soon. Be prepared!

Corned beef sound great.After stripping durian flowers off my Penang 88 my gander better not be looking forward to xmas.One more goose incident and he is on KP.He is Psychic.He knew to ignore my common seedling when he broke into the 'forbidden zone'.He ate pitangatubas,platonias,illamas and sweet madronos but ignored the common stuff.Why am I giving that goose another chance?

He has been skating on thin ice for a while.He also trampolined all over my cambucis and ate a cambuca so the python did take the innocent and the offender was left alone.

Cambuca? That offence alone is worth a direct to the oven order. I planted my pitangatuba and precoce jabaticaba this weekend past, so I'm hoping my dogs dont take a shine to them.

It is the last gander and after many years the family tree will be a stump when he goes.His indiscretions have not been minor.Should the canines kill those 2 BJ your options might be limited to planting again.

yeah, good amount out my way too. Will keep the water delivery man at bay a couple of months at least. Grumichama seems to have liked it a lot and my tiny little carambola has flowered.
