Welcome back to Southland!

The weather has turned again. It's much more Invercargill-ish yet again :)

Days are warm, around 20 degrees, and every couple of days brief rain comes through. The ground is moist, the rainwater tank replenished and the grass has started growing again. My God, how the grass has started growing again! I mowed the lawn 3 days ago and already it's starting to look like it may need another cut very soon again.

Hills no longer look burned-off yellow. Pastures are turning green, roadsides are turning green and Otepuni river near downtown Invercargill is actually flowing again, rather than looking like a stale band of overgrown water.

It's nice seeing my surroundings flourish again.

  1. Kas juurikad ja teised köögiviljad õnnestus kastmiskeelust hoolimata vihmani välja vedada?

    1. Õnnestus :). See küll tähendas, et nädal aega me tõime ämbriga majast vett. 1) duši all käies panime suure plastmass-anuma alla, et vesi sinna koguneks (ca 20 liitrit tuleb dušist vett) ja 2) pesumasinat tuleva vee saatsime tikripõõsaste alla ning kartulimaale. Aga siis tuli üks lühike vihm, millest kogunes 90 liitrit meie vihmaveetünni (garaaži katuse veerenn on tünniga ühendatud) ning tollest jätkus mitmeks kastmiseks, kuni vihm hakkas jälle tulema.

      Ning nüüd, paar nädalat hiljem, on jälle ca 900 liitrit vett vihmaveetünnis. Tomateid tuleb kasvuhoonest ludinal! :)
