(see here) have grown rapidly this month.
Temperatures this month:
Lowest Min 7C

49.8mm Rain
Temperatures were much cooler in the second half of the month from 30.5C on the 15th. Overnight temperatures remain mild, mostly in the mid teens (C).
The Autumn Equinox (equal day and night length) occurred on the 21st after which the winds picked up in strength for a while.
Sadly the "Super" Full Moon on the 20th was hidden from view by heavy cloud.

2011 49.8mm
2010 7mm
2009 13mm
2008 23mm
2007 21.7mm

March in Previous Years:
I am so busy at the moment that I have given my Community Garden plot/bed to a newcomer. I will still be involved with community plots and garden beds but my own garden is keeping me occupied for now.
