This sky is part of a day promising thirty degrees centigrade and lots of storms. You are looking at the skyline of `The Gold Coast' in the background.
Skys like this create great weather for preparing my soil for the cooler months to come.
Last night in the heat again dug my three bottom garden beds and sprinkled gypsum over each bed. This morning the rain had washed the gypsum right into the soil.
Found the soil in these beds had become very compacted over the summer.
Gypsum helps create a looser soil structure.
Nothing grew well in these beds over summer and their soil needs a lot of work before I plant again.
They catch the last of the sun in summer which makes them very hot, but am hoping they will be a good for winter plantings.
Just wish I was stronger and could give them a really deep dig in one go. It takes me several digging sessions to make an impact on the soil and end up with lots of aches and pains afterwards.
But you must have good soil for good food so it has to be dug, and each day I am becoming a stronger gardener.
