Sunny sunday.

Making the most of the cooler mornings and getting the body moving by 7 am. Up to the regeneration site, a good 20 minutes climb up the still slippery path.  My work consisted mostly finding rain forest seedlings growing amongst the bracken, regrowth following lantana slash, pull and mulch. Red, white and pencil cedar seedlings plentiful. A damp morning and I will transplant and pot on surplus.

In the wild tobacco site ( 2 years since lantana was removed) red cedars are now catching up to the tobacco canopy.

 

Busy week just past……………..in-between showers of rain. Garden soil was a priority. Looking very healthy with lots of worms and a jumping ant nest in the garlic chives that I didn’t see before plunging my ungloved hand in to pull a weed.  Ouch and another ouch. Bi carb, vinegar or the base of a bracken fern relieves instantly.

The composition of the soil and all its visible life suggests my continuous mulching is the key. The rebound since the floods ( over 700 mls here) is visually exciting.

Lime applied in heavy drench individual gardens and mulch applied. A full compost pile completed made up of the wide variety of unwanted or dead from the floods, comfrey leaves.

Peanuts , turmeric, Davidson plums and a banana bunch fallen by the wind.

Ginger, turmeric and galangal bursting after the rain.
