What area of Phil mate?????
Great buying gren! :)
Made some more feed pellets today and back into block making tomorrow.
Been trying to make salty eggs.
They are stored in in brine in a cool shaded area for at least 4-5 weeks and then boiled and eaten.
Philino recipe.
pruned grape vines a bit late this yeah, and bloody crows are driving me crazy stealing oranges.
I feel they will die of lead poisoning.
Welded up a lockable steel gate on the second grid below the house.
I think I will make an electronic one for the front grid.

Not much happening here, just waiting for rain. Did some weeding around the house. Had a 1 meter green tree snake at the front door. It has been hanging around the patio a fair bit lately. After gecko lizards I'd say. There are a lot fewer about.

Ive been so busy but not having any time to work on any prep stuff.  The minature almond tree I brought a couple of months ago though is now covered in flowers and starting to form almonds though it isnt even in the ground still yet.

Anyone after a plane? I saw one today which is up for sale at auction You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Almost put a bid on the motorbike just for a laugh.. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  only a $1 bid on it currently (it does say it makes a rattle and make a knocking noise lol) but maybe someone would be interested in it for their farm, maybe it would go for a while. I drove a car which used to make those noises for a while till the cops pulled me over and told me to get it off the road lol

Getting ready for a pig on the spit sunday arvo.
What are you doing sunday Rob?
Cleaning up and finished last mod to cooker.
Bloody pellet maker has issues again and will pull it apart again.
Grain dust is hard on bearings even if repacked.
A lot of ant activity and am hoping its rain coming that has stirred them up.

I am hoping it is just the bearings otherwise I will have to machine up another shaft as well.
There is a shit load of pressure involved with the grinding and pressing process.
Yeah Gren I fired up our rotaryhoe yesterday and tilled up one bed, 3 more to go for wifes peanut crops
and pumpkins.

Doomie, where do you source the peanut seeds? I think they should grow here. I remember back in the 50's my dear old Dad used to grow them. I gotta plant some rosellas too, for jams and pies. Love this time of year. Rain would be quite acceptable if the big bloke in the sky is listening.

Finally got the slasher beam and blade parts and back together ready to mount. Loaded  the ute almost full of alpaca poop. Ready for a run to THE place. A bit of rain wouldn't go astray.

Cooked another pig on the spit for my birthday.
Went well I though  and we had a cheerful day with good company and not a cross word.
Repaired broken shaft in pellet maker again. May have to try 4150 shaft steel this time.
Guna try for bearings with a larger internal diameter bore as the the step in the shaft is
inherently weak. Both star apple trees have a good crop of fruit this year. We have a green one and the dark purple variety. Lost 2 avocados to the frost and one achacha, 2 nd jackfruit is shooting and will survive I think. Down to 8 pigs now but the bastards just keep getting bigger as we are not killing them quick enough :(
Many young calves on the ground now.
WE NEED RAIN REAL BAD :(

Happy Birthday Russ.

I lost a few trees to frost too. Lots of bunches of bananas froze & turned mushy. The young pawpaws I had planted out thinking Winter was over got burnt off by the frost but the soursops though losing their leaves will take off again.

YEP! Doing naked rain dance did not bring me any rain either. :(

Hey GG,
Yeah our soursop coped a hammering.
Do you use the leaves as a tea for prostate?
Supposed to prevent cancer, a lot of nurseries have been sold out for a long time.

I have 9 Soursop that I can think of. Tallest are over 2 m & still lost all their leaves to frost.

No trouble getting soursop in Gympie, a stall at Sunday market has seedlings, 6 inches high in 100 ml sleeve @ $2 each but lychees are $30 to $50 for 1 m high bush. Glad I got my 15 @ $8 a few years ago but only 30cm high. Only 60 cm high now because of drought.   

My tackle still works fine. Think I'll stick to coffee & tea. At 67 if I get prostate trouble on top of bad back & arthritis it would probably a relief.
