    we are of the same opinion Judi B our only way out is through 3 k’s of bush and we are too old to fight a fire for a long period of time.

    Hello FiEddie, welcome to ALS. I live 2 and 1/2 hours from a capital city and off the grid.

    How did you get on with the plumbers Geeg? If it is any thing like here getting a tradesman to come out is like finding hens teeth.

    We have finally had a drop of rain, still don’t think I will plant any winter veggies just yet though.

    Our soil (and I use that word lightly) is also crap mostly rocks actually. I use sheep manure from under the shearing shed as it is really available from the farmer down the road. One for his youngsters get it out and sells it for $2 a large bag. I don’t know of any mushroom farms around here but I will try and hunt one down just to try it. Maybe I should grow my own mushrooms, now that is a thought. Has any one tried growing theirs?

    Bonus Judi B, compost and free mushrooms. I have never used mushroom compost myself as I thought it had the wrong PH for most plants not sure where that idea came from. What do you use it on and is it good for veggies?

    Maybe the navigation issues are keeping a lot of the oldies away? It is the strangest forum format that I have come across, I must say.

    Not sure what is going wrong calliecat, I can read posts without writing anything and a lot of facebookers just look and never say a thing

    This new site is a real pain to navigate. I still have trouble finding my way, as it seems a bit Topsy turvy to me.

    I might try some orange and tangerines in pots and see what happens. The oranges I can from here but will have to buy the others. I don’t know if they would work maybe organic would be better what do you think?
