We're getting brown rot

 Oh dear. I don't know what brown rot is but it doesn't sound nice so I will stay inside out of the weather in case I should be affected by or catch it. And I thought COVID was a problem.

  2. As you say Andrew, as if it's not bad enough, now it's the attack of the killer fungi!

    1. Grace, I'll take my chances with killer fungi. At least I can see it.

    1. MC, of course it doesn't and it is odd for the warning to come up when it is clear my phone is set to Melbourne. I suppose I could own a country orchard though.

    1. Traval, as kangaroos bound along our city streets, so do we have wandering sheep

    2. Sounds like my living room, well without the kangaroos

  5. I had another look when I saw all those warnings earlier- think we’re safe from most of them. Seems they’re going to be felt more upcountry than metro...thank goodness. Although going by the flood warnings it might get a bit wet out here in the east...
    Stay safe...and dry Andrew!

    1. Cathy, well don't send all your rain into the Yarra and make it flood here.

  6. The last three days Alexa has pronounced partly cloudy skies. Each day we have rain!
    So sick of Covid, Rain, and Laundry!

    1. Sandra, something to do with stone fruits I believe.

  10. Brown rots make excellent pets though I prefer white rots. They are very affectionate creatures and will eat just about anything. What will you call your brown rot? How about Roland? Roland Rot.

    1. YP, I like to taste the exotic and so will stick with brown rot and I will call him Ronnie Rot.

  11. I heard term Brown Rot, thought it was something to do with plants.

  12. Is this the Chinese strain of 'Brown Rot'?

    1. I hope not Cro. Our Prime Minister will append Chinese to Brown Rot.

  13. Well now you need to do more research, because I need to know what brown rot is and am I in any danger way over here on the other side of the border!
    It's probably something to do with damp in the crops, but let us know okay?

    1. River, something to do with stone fruits. I don't care to look anymore.

  14. Probably it is the brown spots inside potatoes when you cut open raw ones that look good on the outside but are speckled inside, something to do with a certain type of potato in a certain type of soil.

    1. I am such a bad potato peeler. By the time I have finished peeling one and removing those spots, there is not much potato left. It's been a couple of decades since I have peeled a potato and I doubt anything would have changed.

  15. Great! Something ELSE to worry about!
