Looking quite lush in the grow tent at the moment.

Still winter here at the moment, but should only be a few weeks until last frost for the season and can start to move some of them outside.

 

We have been having some glorious weather, 25°C days but some cold nights down to 0° or 1°. Still drought declared at the moment though, we could do with some decent rain. Hopefully before I start planting outside.

 

 

I have some plants outside that I cut back at Winters start and have been almost neglecting them. One of the habs has been pushing out tiny little pods all winter (hot enough to give a little sting when you bite into them, but not much to speak of). Even it is starting to produce some pods a little bit larger.

Decided to start hardening some of my babies off today by the back door. It won't be long before the cold nights are a thing of the past for this year.

Sitting at the back door waiting to go outside to play?   ;)

 

I can't wait for spring myself.

We had a hard frost today to remind me to keep my plants inside , exactly 0 Celsius at daybreak this morning.

Sounds almost the same here. We have been having some beautiful daytime weather, but the forecast for the next week or so says down to 1° or 2° on some of the nights. Historically speaking though last frost is the middle of August.

Update. Couple of weeks since last update. 

 

We were having some glorious weather for a few weeks, +25°C days, 8° or 9° at night. Nearly put some of the plants outside.

 

Glad I didn't though. Last 3 night have been down to 1° overnight with hard frost in the mornings, and the days have been lucky to reach +15°.

 

Anyway, things are going okay in the grow tent, growing well.

 

I may have neglected things a little while I was doing night shift. Got a little bit dry in there and a few are looking a bit sad.

 

Gave them a good bottom water today and put them outside for a while.

 

Hope the frost doesn't hang around for too much longer, they need more room. I may need to cull some.

Our weather is just about the same.

Last frost , hopefully , was Monday morning and now the same as yours.

I have slowly started planting out.

Instead of culling , just put them outside and see what happens.

So, Spring has sprung. Hopefully no more frost.

 

Took the gamble and up potted a few that I have multiples of and am going to leave them outside.

2 x Sugar Rush Peach

2 x Monkey Face Red

2 x Aji Pineapple

1 x Um Ji Put

1 x Yellow Siam

 

Will see how they fare before I put anything else outside.

We had temps down to 1° and frost 3 nights in a row last week. But the forecast for the next 10 days  is for 6° to 10° overnights, so it is a bit of a leap of faith.

The migration continues.

 

Just 2 weeks out of winter and it was 34°C today. Not the first day over 30 this season too.

 

Moved the plants that were on the balcony out into the yard under shade cloth.

 

20180915_131359.jpg

 

And repotted another 20 of the babies.

20180915_172707.jpg

 

I was going to leave them up on the balcony, but the wind really picked up and was giving them hell so I put them in a more sheltered spot in the shade.

 

The grow tent is starting to look a bit empty.

Yes. The ones under the shade cloth have been out for a while, getting filtered light most of the day on the patio and 3 or 4 hours direct sunlight in the afternoons, so they will be right now.

 

The others that I potted today are pretty much in full shade from the shed they are next to, with maybe half hour of direct sun right on sunset.

I repotted the last of my plants and put them outside today.

 

22.09.18 outdoors.jpg

 

The grow tent really does look empty now. I am not going to repot these ones, and have already found someone that wants them, they will pick them up tomorrow.

 

20180922_135354.jpg

 

That makes about 60 plants outdoors of 22 different varieties I think. I am not going to keep them all, but I will keep one or two of each and rehome the rest.

The ones that you repotted, is that their final pot-up?

No, definitely not.

 

The ones in the 20L buckets will stay in them, but not being sure which of the others I am keeping I put them in smaller pots.

 

The ones I keep will go into larger pots with a few in the ground.

Well, the last of the plants in the tent have been given away.

 

The tent is officially empty and has been shut down for the season
