when i use as a fert i simply rinse in a tub of water (old kiddies plastic shell thingy) for an hour or so then i ether put in a barrel and fill with water for liquid brew or hang to dry for a few days to let go crispy. that i use as mulch.
been out and got i little bit but no lettuce very disapointing.
will post pics as i progress
im here couple times a month :wave:
wow! i get the impression that is alot of sawdust. i would recommend posting a few pics of the general area so we can see whats going on.
are these huge piles of sawdust or has it been spread to some degree?
too what degree has the sawdust “composted/rotted down?
i ask that because sawdust can cause a nitrogen deficiency while it rots. look…[Read more]
thanks everyone didn’t think it grew all the way down here in melbourne.
i have used chooks to hatch ducklings many times and agree with Mukluk alot of your success depends on the quality of the mother.
avoid the temptation to interfere (too much) at hatching time
allow a quiet stress free environment at hatching time so they bond quickly
as chooks don’t go swimming keep eggs humid by dipping fingers in…[Read more]
i’m pretty sure these could be downloaded via torrent or emule
if you are unsure about this message me and i’ll give u a few tips.
graft wood is the same principle as with fruit trees. you graft a small bud or piece of a known variety onto an existing tree. you need an existing carob tree in this case to graft onto.
this gives you a known variety /flavour and yield and as the wood is mature should start producing in a few years.
i have carob seeds and will send you…[Read more]

this doco is profound only for those brave enough to see what the world is turning into.
plenty of download software if ppl want to save and watch later
OK I’ll put my recipe on paper and post it soon.
and yes comfrey dies back in winter now would be a good time to mulch and fertilize
I’ve made comfrey,marigold and plantain balm for cuts and it’s amazing
there are 3 basic types of breeds, layers, meat and utility(a bet each way)
where i live in the burbs breeding in a no go so just have layers with one faverolle.
my faverolle is a very aggressive bitch and even for a utility she lays very poorly, her days are numbered.
i recommend pick the purpose you wish to use them for eg laying and then…[Read more]

i agree it is so confusing when you can’t find good reliable data without the misinformation from either side.
what is the misinformation that you have herd?
what u said in your original post is right on the money (pardon the pun. You are asking the right questions and when the answers and what we see in the real world are incongruent something is profoundly wrong.
keep digging but be prepared for very disturbing conclusions : (
yes it is cut and paste 😛
Sounds pretty comprehensive to me. I’m also putting a small backpack together with only essentials if i need to go bush fast……..just like the bushfire concept.
Also you all may find this interesting…..it’s called Sustainability St. it is where a street or neighborhood of ppl get together s/s stuff.

i agree “poor ppl” or “3rd world” are pretty much off the grid already it is us who have farther to fall and we may not “adjust” to the removal of “the easy life”.
I’m now treating the situation like the “CFA bushfire plan” http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/firesafety/bushfire/documents/frk_05_plan_defending_property.pdf
all the principles apply…[Read more]

that said all it takes is a few to muck that up. also i have lost faith in both the leaders of this country and the world : (
i do believe we can prepare so take it one step at a time….as they say hope for the best and plan for the…[Read more]
