YOU DIRTY RAT

Posted by Pete Vicars on January 3, 2016 at 17:00 5 Comments

I see a few people looking for rat solutions,  ha ha me too.

My PC died before Christmas, so have been offline for a while. 

OK I can tell you bunnings keep running out of traps.  If you do get traps get the plastic ones, they are dearer, but the wooden ones fall apart.

I actually made cages for some traps so only rats could get in.  So no dogs, cats, birds got trapped.

1 c wholemeal flour

Pomegranate cuttings

Posted by Roger Clark on November 14, 2015 at 9:26 5 Comments

Gabriele, I have cuttings from two types. One is an unknown variety that I got from a guy selling them from his backyard. The other is from a bought variety -" A Wonderful". Both are in flower now. I have had very little fruit from the first variety, but as they have responded very well to the recent rain, I believe it is my lack of watering that has caused this. The Wonderful is only two years old but is growing very well. You are welcome to a cutting of each. Please call me on 32000431 to…
