Following an extreme past 2 weeks weather ways, it is a fantastic relief to get a good nights sleep and to hear the creek water in the distance. Temperatures have dropped considerably.
Fungis, lichens, mini clusters forming on fallen branches. The photo below I took yesterday in-between showers and I can not identify it.
A fallen Moreton Bay fig bough.
Last couple of days and have almost reached my target.
Do you know anyone who would like to support workers who can not work with herbicides? Or someone who has had a significant carbon foot print and would like to create a balance?
$30 an hour to plant trees after the hard labour of slash, pull and mulching lantana ? Already 100 hours of labour wages has been raised and with another 200 hours that will be needed to regenerate 3 hectares, I am optimistic we will get there.
A big thank-you to everyone who has already contributed………………. from our flora and fauna and particularly the water run off that has not been polluted by herbicide run off.
An exciting winter work season ahead which you have supported and encouraged.
Grasshopper fast food area. The mass of mustard flowers and zinnias have attracted the grasshopper population and have segregated them from the wider garden leaving other vegetables alone.

Started early but heavy rain sorted out my garden work. Snakes on the move and bower birds ripping the outside leaves of the cabbages. Luckily they leave the hearts for my kitchen.
Luncheon ahead for 2 guests. We will probably need a siesta, like the snake below, 4 days after swallowing.
My campaign launch………………..please distribute to people………. who just might like to support workers, to plant trees after the hard labour of slash, pull and mulching lantana…………………. instead of poisoning with herbicides.
