Second Week of December

Another week of strange weather. Overcast and very humid early in the week, with a severe thunderstorm and much-needed rain on Thursday evening. The mulch applied last week has helped maintain moisture levels in the soil.

All the plants continue to make good progress. My uncle visited this morning and was pleased with the progress of the beans. Apparently they're almost ready to harvest.

I transplanted seedlings of a different variety of tomatoes to a pot. I want to see how they grow in the pot for a while. I also transplanted a second batch of basil seedlings to another pot.

Friday night I gave all the plants their now-regular fortnightly feed of seaweed solution.
