Well filled airtight container, petrol will last 20 years and be usable. Drop in preservers can be bought out of england cheap. Pig went well and we have been chewing through the last boney leftovers today.
Getting a better spit motor for the roaster, does up to 100kg ($348) and son is going haves in it lucky for me. Too much bullshit mucking around with reduction boxes and motors etc etc. And then they have to be safeish as well. Been busy cutting fire wood to feed the house heater and pig corn cooker as well.
Going to bundy Rob maybe tomora, but probably wednesday. Going to the snow with the kids for a school camp and need some kit. Fly in and fly out job. Veges are growing well and some stone fruit is flowering
now. Hoping my bloody sugar plums and blood plums will have a set this year. Have a heap of calves on the ground atm and looking for some serious rain to take us into spring time. Weather is weird and grass is trying to grow on 40 points of rain. Cleaned out the outer side of the pig stye and let them through for more space. Avocados are growing well and the achacha's are still alive and growing. If I can get thm through this winter and have some size about them I think they will survive frosts. Will be planting more achachas up near the yards later as they are worth a fortune down here and only are growing near Ingham or tully from memory.

As always the offer is open to drop in, but I know what it's like, in a hurry to get into town one way and just wanna get home the other way :)

I got 13 190w panels the other day, $45 each, hopefully that will square me away once they are hooked up.

Working my way up to do a little hunting down at your river sometime soon if that's OK, maybe when it gets warmer :)

All good Rob. Bundy today.
Made a steel stove for down there where people camp.
I am over run with roos atm and they need moving on.
Going fishing on saturday with the kids and wife.
Hopefully get some good sized perch and maybe a bass or barra.
What did you do for batteries Rob, as you had all that alphabet soup
setup at your place? Yeah my new supplier has 250 watt panels all checked for $50 each, but the drive is a chore for me atm. I want to have 60-80 salted away under cover for ron.

I'm starting from scratch in that department, 16 new Century C105s (225Ah @ 6v), flooded so I will have to try and get into maintenance. I prefer AGMs because I'm lazy in but they cost a lot more.

The mish mash of batteries in the truck will stay for now, they are on the way out but still usable. At least the truck is no longer tethered to the house and is free to roam, I will take it for a short drive soon to see if everything still works after 3-4 years of being parked.

0.C here this morning. Warming up now, already 10C. Glad I did not plant the 5 soursop & 5 jackfruit on Monday or frost would have burnt them off, they are only 30 cm high.

0C - 2C - 3C - 4C - 3C - 4C - 5C  The 7 day morning forecast here. Should hit around 20C - 25C each day.

I planted the cherry threes last week, glad I got bare-root dormant trees otherwise the frost would have probably killed them   :-X :-X

I doubted it would be worth trying cherry trees in my clay soil or have enough cold days so I went for tropical fruit grumichama - Brazil Cherry. I have 15 of them. 1 m tall now & started fruiting lightly last year.  Pretty hard to tell them & cherry apart taste wise & same size if not a smidgeon bigger. Fruits Oct - Nov - Dec. REALLY YUMMY. Got them at Maryborough street market 5-6 years ago about 30 cm high for about $3 each. Had little rain for 4 years except some flooding rain & no irrigation, just hose & bucket from dam.

The cold is finally here to set the fruit on the apples. Sad news about your bananas.

Mate they are blacker than the inside of my rectum this morning! :o
Surprisingly the achachas took it well, one of my bigger avocados got a big dose and looks like I feel some nights. Gotta kill another pig end of this week as some-one wants one for a spitroast.
Took kids fishing yesterday and middle boy hooked up 2 good sized jewfish and is now hooked on fishing.
Skinned and filleted them yesterday and soaked them in a sweet salty bath and smoked them today.
Very good taste and flavour.
