Topping Jacarandas on Ridge Road on a chilly winter morning
Wood Chipper. Just what I need for all the chopped wood at our spot. I forgot to ask these blokes if the council hired this machine out.
Max has been quite poorly this past week. She may have Merek’s disease but with a little bit of therapy she has begun to respond. I have been warned that shouting ”KFC!” at her does not help.
”Put your left leg in put your left leg out…”

Some of our lettuce. These are from self- seeded stock that I transplanted a while back . I’m surprised they haven’t bolted already.
Hiding in plain sight.
Taters in Boxes.
Saw this method on the Youtubes and while I’m fortunate to have plenty of open dirt to plant me taters I thought I’d give this variation of the no-dig method a go.
The premise being the bottom of the box is folded in and the potatoes rest on the open dirt, or other medium (compost , leaves, straw etc. ) Medium is added as they grow. When they are ready to harvest one simply lifts the box and picks up the spuds. I presume the soil is raked over.
Watch this space.
And finally, for Nan, bless her cotton socks!

This rather fetching young lady is around half the size of my thumb.
