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.
