No more Loquats. Now we will put the net over the grapes. We did a pretty hefty pruning on the grapes. We will see if we get more grapes than last year. Odd with grapes that fruit in the summer though.

They are working on the big road. Wonder how it will look when it is finished. Flat as Holland hopefully but first rain and a lorry and it will be back to 4-wheeling.

The grass is mowed, the patches are weeded, the trees are pruned, the avocados are planted and most is coming to flowers or fruit so we only have to wait now and keep an eye on things. We can start working on other projects. Back to the bathroom for example and do some work on the new spot for the water tank. I want to get a patch for the wild raspberries (Rubus rosifolius,) and some blackberries that already grows there in order too. A new projects that we are doing is transforming the temporary shower cabin to a garden tool shed. Ohh there is never a moment without womething to do and figure out the best way of doing it.

Woah, just seeing two Rainbow Lorikeets in the Silky Oak! Nice having them around. They can get quite friendly. We are keeping an eye on our patches too. We might have to put netting over 3 and 4 by and by.

 

We are also keeping an eye on the bush fire that is slowly growing but allegedly under control. Luckily the wind is next to nothing otherwise it would probably not be under control.

Also we are trying to dry dill to store in jars instead of freezing.

Avocado with barbed fencing Here is one of the avocados we have planted. It has a natural barbed wire so the wallabies will not eat the leaves until it has grown a bit. The barbed wire are wild lime trees.
