🙂 I made a special batch of soap to celebrate at least now the days will stop getting shorter. I don’t mind the cold so much but the dark mornings and evening I get over very quickly.June 21, 2012 at 12:43 am #525147RobyneMember

According to folklore the winter solstice is the right time to plant garlic but its been far to wet for that here. The ground is saturated and I think any new plantings will struggle.
Lovely soap Kerrie. How does the charcoal react with the water?June 22, 2012 at 7:33 pm #525152
Bron it’s coconut oil so a relatively quick cure before I’d package to sell looking at 3-4 weeks. I’ve quite a few things that will be listed about then.
Porgey the charcoal is inert so no issue with it reacting with water.August 4, 2012 at 10:31 pm #525153AnonymousInactive

I have to agree that dark mornings are a drag but last time I checked our water supplies were very low, which is a real worry. We really need more rain here. However I’m off to Halls Creek for the next 7 weeks. The Kimberley has a lot better weather than down here.
After that I want to get the house at the property built. If I can work out how to set up a blog I’ll try to start one.

The days are getting longer here but it is still really quite cold.
Water is a big issue I’m a bit worried about my folks who are 70 on 60 acres or there abouts. They’ve nearly no feed on the ground and no hay (two years failure in a row one so wet everything rotted and last year a very dry spring so not very much to cut) and if they get a dry spring which is on the cards they’ll have to completely destock. As it is Dad’s taking the stock around the local roads every day for extra feed which is far from ideal.
Waterwise locally we in a really good position with the last couple of wet years having our storages up at the highest levels in 15-20 years. Actually is we get a big rain event the Barwon could have a major flood for the first time in many. many years as the main dam is full.
