That time of year again when it's time to fly away for the winter, quite literally. Off to SE Asia again in May so busy getting my 'house in order' here.
There is currently one Native stingless bee hive available for purchase. Also I have recently posted my 'room for rent' onto flatmates.com.au because I'm looking to find a house-mate to share here. The single room at the back of the house is advertised for $130/ week which includes free power and water, so if anyone is interested please call ASAP as it'll go quickly.
The car is up for sale too, on Gumtree for $3700. and I can honestly say that in spite of its 90,000 km odometer reading for a 2000 model Kia Rio manual hatchback, it's never been driven to church on a Sunday, or any other day for that matter. Might sound a little exy, BUT it's converted to run on LPG ($2000. worth of gear) and has had a new timing belt/water pump kit and all leaky seals have been replaced and brakes etc in top form. Only ever been 2 owners and always garaged.
Some are not too fond of Crows but I love 'em. Been watching their antics for a long time now, but was confused about some of their behaviour when I started feeding them rehydrated dried cat food biscuits which they seem to enjoy. This, I placed on top of my compost bin to keep it high and safe from cats etc. However they took to putting the plastic feeding cup on the ground and I couldn't figure why till yesterday when feeding the same cat biscuits to my tadpoles in a small pond, I was watching them feed, when a mouse swam out into the pond to fetch a floating cat bit! Aha, the penny dropped as I now realized the crows had figured that if they put the food on the ground, the mice can be caught as they come to grab the food, meaning a good haul of very fresh organic meat for them instead of the processed rubbish I had on offer. So there you go, the Crows are good for rodent control!
Also now have an upgraded bio-char burner system here as I learned that an old car wheel rim makes an excellent top for the burner. Will demonstrate this on Saturday 18th if anyone is interested.
