Snakes, misty rain and work.

Unusual for this time of the year, 3 snakes are moving around the gardens. One quite thin. Keeping the hens in their pen, the two young ones are a nice size snack. The next photo shows the scar along the snake, perhaps a whipper snipper injury ?

Work on the 3 hectare ex banana growing site is progressing well. Yesterday rain dampened our slashing but still managed to get a swathe slashed and mulched.

A pilot study of American mothers’ milk has found levels of the herbicide glyphosate around 1,000 times higher than allowed in European drinking water. Campaigners are demanding a ban on the use of glyphosate on food crops.

What we are now looking at with glyphosate-based herbicides is a similar situation to what we all faced in the 20th Century with PCBs, DDT and Agent Orange.
In the first ever testing on glyphosate herbicide in the breast milk of American women, Moms Across America and Sustainable Pulse have found ‘high’ levels in three out of the ten samples tested.

The shocking results point to glyphosate levels building up in women’s bodies over a period of time, which has until now been refuted by both global regulatory authorities and the biotech industry.
