In typical Australian fashion, earlier this week it went from "World is on Fire!" to "Ohai I Heard U Like Rainz!"
Which is to say it's gone from hot and dry and crispy to sudden floods. After the rains passed on I found my poor dear cherry tomato pot absolutely flooded with water; what a hard way to discover your pot doesn't have very good drainage! Just goes to show that I'm still very much a n00b gardener.
I've drained the pot and added in larger drainage holes, but I have a feeling the damage to the roots is already done. I've been really REALLY enjoying these tomatos as well, they're as sweet as candy!
Not everything suffored from the rain though; in fact it's done wonders for the heirloom tomato seedlings I bought the other weekend as well as the basil!
In fact except for that cherry tomato plant, everything seems to be prospering after the much-needed rains.
Just a bit of a hard lesson to learn; always check the bottom of your pots!!
