Finally !! the ground has softened with much needed rain and the strawberries are being reorganised and we are fertilizing the winter vegies, mulching against the coming winter dry and burning some bonfires and breaks in the forest for bushfire prevention.
Both Dave and I are Zoologists and keen bird watchers/naturalists, loving to quietly explore the rainforest,creeks,gullies and fantastic sculptured rock pools of the Doyles River which wraps around our land and drops through 200m of cascades and natural spa pools.
Most winter veges are now planted; broccoli,beets, snow peas,carrots, lettuce, chinese greens etc.
We are harvesting pepinos,tamarillos,citrus fruit cherry guavas,for breakfasts and the last of the tomatoes,cucumbers,lettuce and herbs for our everyday lunchtime salads.Also making pasta sauces and lime marmalade etc on the wood stove for later winter use.
The pantry of tasty preserves is well stocked and the olives, walnuts,chestnuts macadamia nuts and bamboo shoots are mostly in now. We're raking cut grass for mulch and compost and keeping the forest firebreak trails clear of sticks as we walk.
Dave,has been pulling lantana seedlings following on from the major Landcare work of a few months ago,in our beautiful forest and we are keen to follow up with some new walking tracks and rainforest plantings.
Our local community is actively transitioning to a resilient future beyond fossil fuels and projects like the Oxygen Farm,Community Health Centre and Old Sawmill regeneratation where we are tackling pioneer planted privet) are also part of our experience for you. We could also use help with effectively engaging the internet to invite more urban community groups to share our active lifestyle and local sustainable living workshops,dances etc You will be genuinely appreciated here. We are "off-grid" on solar power but satelite internet and WiFi are available.Long stays welcomed.
