The El Nino has been weakening and we are said to be in for above average temperatures from May to July this year. This will make it difficult for cropping vegetables here in South-East Queensland that require the cold months for successful production. Additionally, we could be in for above average rainfall with The Bureau of Meteorology giving a 65% chance of this happening. Greater soil moisture through the colder months can be useful for keeping frosts mild or at bay in some areas. This could be good news for your veggies that enjoy the warmer temperatures.
The next month or two is harvest time for many of the crops you had planted throughout autumn. Additionally, if you have been growing strawberries, you should be starting to enjoy the feasting of these. Sowing of seeds and planting of new seedlings however is generally not ideal until mid-August when daytime temperatures rise and the days lengthen. So, as you harvest crops through early to mid-winter, prepare your spring beds by planting a cover crop ready to dig in August/September, or leave fallow under fresh manures and mulch.
