    Gardening Birdies raised beds

    Gidday Mark or Mandy, I recall on one of your videos, you mentioned about Birdies raised garden beds. Was there a 5% discount on these beds when mentioning “ Self Sufficient Me “?? Beds to be build will be at Narangba so within SE Qld. Cheers Brian

    Bunya Nut season again

    Chicken Curry tonight so they went in with the beans and carrot as a part of the vege mix instead of potato. Tasted beautiful and bunya nut can be used as a replacement for pasta too.

    Bunya Nut season again

    It’s that time of the year in SE Queensland with a number of the neighbours with Bunya Nut trees. Photos show the nut that’s fallen from the trees , the seed pod begins to flake apart and Janet breaks open the husk to remove the seed shell. She then boils them for 20/30minutes and cracks open...

    Question What are your plans this Christmas (and how is your garden involved)?

    Janet and I will be spending Xmas in the front yard with the chooks... lol Because we’ll be sitting down to eat we’ll have to social distance from the chooks tho as they are fully vaxed but we aren’t. 😂 😆 My god do you know how hard it is to fit a mask on a chook...

    Egg bound chook

    Noticed one of the chooks wasn’t quite its self the last couple of days. Even to the stage that 2 nights ago she didn’t go back into the coop with the rest but attempted to roost on the hand railing by the back door. Last 2 days I was 1 or 2 eggs short and was in a rush this morning and noticed...

    Chicken feed crumbling

    Only have 6 chooks and 7 x 20kg bags is free shipping . So that’s about 8 months worth of food as they free range all day and get their treats each day too. 😆 But boy do they do as their told. Amazing what a little meat each day can do. They hear me calling they come running even if they sneak...

    Chicken feed crumbling

    Cheers David. I noticed Mount Mee is not in their catchment for deliveries but I found a mobile number to contact them for information on shelf life , other options or produce outlets that may stock their premium mix.

    Chicken feed crumbling

    Hello all. Of late I’ve found the bags of 20kg Riverina Stockfeed laying pelletS I’ve purchased , quite a lot is just dust. Anyone else had the same issue or can recommend a chook feed available in Queensland that managed to hold itself in pellet form???

    Last nights storms

    More of the same I fear the next couple of days Kathryn. Hope you can resurrect some of the plants. My cucumbers and zucchini where peppered last week by the hail but the cucumbers 🥒 held in there and are coming along ok again.

    Last nights storms

    Just like you Helen, a lot of noise and passed within a whisker of us. Yet Darryl’s farm about 400m away I could see it bucketing down . Because we are right on top of the mountain we often see the same thing the rains coming from the west / NW. Different story from the South East tho and we’ll...

    Last nights storms

    How did you all fair in last nights storm cells passing through SE Qld?? Was a brilliant light show up here and then I could hear it coming from the south west like a freight train 1-2 minutes before it hit. Hail for the first couple of minutes and 20mm of rain in the first 20minutes. Zucchini...

    Permaculture Food Forest

    I have sir Walter in and around my gardens too and it’s very hearty and should override any other variety over time that tries to encroach. Very resilient to all types of weather and hopefully once in place should hold the structure of your topsoil in place. The orchard area as I like to call...

    Grow Potatoes in a Cardboard Box

    Shouldn’t have a problem with soil drying out for a little while now Mandy with the amount of rain over this past few days.. Had 97mm in the last 24 hrs up here with 60 odd mm falling with 30 minutes up on the Mountain.

    New Project - Could send me to the insane asylum

    Great job mate. There are some farmers down in New SouthWales here in Oz who have taken a similar approach and have planted original grasses and bushes near the Murray River and they all work at retaining the goodness in the soil structure and filtering so the run off going back into the river...
