I find the fine mesh chicken wire works well for keeping things out, you can make small cages to slip over the top of your veggies.

10.7c this morning. Did not have mornings this cold until June last year.

Chance of things getting a little wet, maybe, in about 10 or so days time. Another 60mm May event like last year would be nice but a long way off!!

Cool out here too. Still only 17.4C at 7.45am.
Very slowly warming up.
Haven't really had proper cold weather since 2011. Wouldn't mind having a pretend winter.

Yeah, the Coral Sea "might" have one last kick in it. GFS & EC are starting to show signs of a tropical disturbance.

It's down to 17.6 and it's only 00:50 hrs !

Not a civilised temperature at all for human beings to endure.

It was 18 out here hickory, about 1am.

12.4 at 7am.

Still only 14. No way I'm getting out of my cosy bed yet.

Wonder if this is just a cold snap, or whether the mornings will continue to be this cold til August.

A very chilly 8.8c this morning. Very early start to these cold temps. Have uggies, trackies and a hoody on. Might see some frosts again this year.
Day times are perfect with very light breezes and clear blue skies.

That is definitely a bit on the nippy side Simmo.
Glad it's not quite that cold yet out here.

Looking forward to some cold weather, including some cold days, but I still wouldn't go south to get it...lol.

Recorded rain on 10 days for 9.6mm. 7.2mm fell in 2 days then all other days were either 0.2mm or 0.4mm from drizzle during the day.
Things are still green though which is nice. Some places are just starting to brown off a bit but compared to last year it is still lush. Was completely brown by the second week of April last year.
Hopefully we get a few mm over the next week or so.

Stayed at Woodlei8gh Sat night, very little in the way of observations between Georgetown and Palmerville -- guess around 8c. Bloody freezing. Sun night at Chillagoe much warmer. Not a cloud seen until Monday.

Wanjina only 1.4mm in mine since Thurs

After about 11pm the showers over the beaches started to get a bit fair dinkum.
The grass growth was slowing down a bit, but it'll probably be a month or two before I only ring the mowerman every 6 weeks.
