May planting weekend is upon us

Hi ReSource RICAns,

I hope this finds you in fine fettle.

Think Like A Tree by Karen Shragg

Soak up the sun
Affirm life’s magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling.

Yes it’s time to do all of the above and plant, celebrate the trees  on the hill, get together, have a mudfight in the dam (I reckon it’ll be pretty low), mend stuff, move stuff, sit round the fire and yarn etc etc

Look forward to seeing you Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May.

Water Tank and Stinkweed – an Autumn visit to Moonambel.


As I was walking all alane.
I heard three Larwills making a mane:
The tane unto the tithers did say,. ‘
Whar sall we gang and dine the day?’

Well we ganged and dined at the shed before heading up the erosion gullies to chip out Stinkweed. Things are looking dry at Moonambel and the world pants for want of Autumn rain. We didn’t have the heart to check on our Spring plantings, but we demolished a bit of Stinkweed – a good year and season to do so as it happens because it hasn’t thrived in the dry and so it was already on its weedy knees. We also emptied the water tank; decanting 100 litres for domestic uses. So it is ready to be moved away from the shed wall. That can be a job for our next trip. A bit of dam building in the gullies until the sun disappeared behind the ridge, then headed home.
