I know, I have a problem getting rid of it as they won't take it in at the dump because it's asbestos - it will be fine if I slap another coat of paint on it to use as planters, I will take care when drilling drainage holes.

Don't feel like work, got the flu, very tight chest & headache - think I'm going to call it a day and ask the boss if I can go home.

Have a "lekker" weekend my friend xx

Mention the word "asbestos" here and they all drop down and have a heart attack!!

My house was built in the 70's so it's covered in asbestos cement, nothing to worry about unless you either eat it or smash it and disperse the dust. If you are using the gutters just be careful when you either cut them or scrape them, always use a mask, but after you've done that I couldn't see much of a problem.

emoticon new gutters are up & tanks installed, what a nice surprise when I got home, shame they worked in the rain all day. Looks neat! can't believe what a difference gutters makes to the look of the house, definitely updated to 21st centaury. Now to find a use for a heap of old asbestos gutters, I was thinking of vertical herb garden.

It sounds like a fight for survival of the cleverest on your side, those possums seems like a huge pest! We have loads of fruit eating birds here but that's it only other problem are moles that can be very destructive in vegetable garden, a problem easily solved by raised beds and my Jack Russell, lol!

You are way ahead of me with planting, hubby nags me every weekend for vines & passionfruit but I need to plan where & when first. Learned my lesson well planting hastily then regretting when in the wrong place - money & labour down the drain, not funny.

I've got an apple and an apricot tree to prune this Winter and the apple needs spraying for apple scab as well.

The loquat tree, if I get the fruit covered in time is partly ours, but mostly the cockies chew up all the fruit. They are definitely not getting my apricots and apples this year. Earlier this year most of our apples disappeared despite being covered. All I can think of is a possum got into the netting and ate them all, I was really pissed as we had the tree covered properly from the birds but never even expected the bloody possums!!

I pulled the grape vines as they had this thing on the leaves that left lumpy things all over the leaves. I use the leaves as well as the grapes, but again I have to watch out for the possums. I put in a passionfruit this year along with a raspberry and a redcurrant, hopefully they'll fruit this year.

That is a fantastic link! thank you xxx I have printed it out and going to try my hand, the last leaves are only dropping now, all the trees has been confused with warmer weather. My feeling was to prune while dormant but then somebody advised me to wait for nearer to summer. Loving this new challenge, I have become much more serious about all things gardening, this is what my retirement is going to be about so I might as well get it right.

BTW is your loquat for the birds or what do you do with the fruit? Do you have granadilla & grape vines?

We have an ancient pear tree out the front that was here when we came @40 years ago, at the moment the pears on it are dry and small and I've never bothered to prune it as everything here that bears fruit has to be covered because of the parrots. I have enough trouble now with the trees I have . I have an apple, 2 apricots, the pluot, a fig, a loquat and 4 citrus trees. The parrots even eat the tomatoes and the tree ferns, nothing is sacred from them.

If you are going to prune you have to do it in Winter when the tree is dormant, if it's a huge tree you'd probably need a tree surgeon or at least someone who knows what they are doing. I've added a link here to give you an idea of what to do.

If your tree has any other problems like apple scab etc you need to spray with the appropriate spray usually after the blossom has dropped.

Let me know if this link isn't the one you need and I'll try to find something else for you. Basically what you need to do is to keep the tree open and in a shape that doesn't cross or bunch up over itself.

The Pluot sounds interesting, keep me updated once you have fruit. I was tempted to put apricots in but decided not to, think there are enough soft fruit trees now for the fruit flies and birds. Will have to google your Paulowia tree when I start my research on how to doctor a very old pear tree....any ideas? I'm to scared to prune, so much old dead wood, would like to rescue it, it must be about 50 years old.

I know what you mean, if I got rid of the weeds in the "lawn" there'd be nothing left!!

I just planted a Pluot (cross between a plum and apricot) and a Paulownia tree the other day and I got a Tangelo tree yesterday but haven't planted it yet.

We have had lovely weather for the past 10 days, no wind or rain just chilly but it's going to hit us now, I think July is going to be very wet with snow on the mountains. Hope spring will not be delayed like last year, I can't wait to watch my new fruit trees grow!

Seriously looking forward to summer, my to do list is LONG! fist on the list are my raised beds for vegetables, I sort of given up on the tunnel idea as it's going to be to costly. Feeling frustrated that I'm not ready to start planting, trying to make up by ridding the yard of all weeds-you will be horrified to see the crap growing in open ground, can't believe how it's been neglected.

Yeah birds don't do strangers well do they. I know my cocky gives the "who in the f*** are you look" at anybody new in the house and the alarm alarm screach outside whenever there is someone out there that doesn't belong.

The weather here has been cold but not too wet yet. I don't mind the rain as it keeps the tanks and aquifers filled, but I'll be glad when this cold crap weather hits the dust too. I'm definitely not a Winter person.

Billy Boy & Beebee fed up with weather(mommy too) storms forecast for weekend emoticon builder took down old gutters yesterday and I don't see them finishing the job today. Front yard looks like a building site, my poor birds can't stand all the strangers around the house, it's freaking them out.

Funny the snails aren't in the Agapanthus but they do like my Aspidistra that I have outside. I've got to watch out for earwigs in my tree ferns as well

Agapanthus are like weeds here, don't have any in my "new" garden. In the old place they just attracted snails galore, decided to stick to Geraniums this time. Had loads of Clivias but again snail farm, pulled them out and planted lavenders...getting lazy to garden in old age :) ??

The frosts were so bad here they knocked the stuffing out of the Agapanthus. Those things are like cockroaches you can't kill them, but they were really knocked around.

I bought a stack of Pittosporum treelets to replace what the last summer did and probably what this winter has done

Poor plants had doesn't know what to do, had warm spells between very cold & wet weather. I see my potted Duranta's new sprouts are dying off again, one side of the tree has got new leaves and the other side still dressed in winter mode. The bulbs that normally flowers by now is straggly, don't think I'm going to see any flowers this spring :( what a waste of money.

Exactly why I'm getting tired of the heat, it's too hot I've been trying to keep alive some of my small pittosporums I planted after the bushfires, I think I'll save them but the leaves have turned crispy so it gives you an idea as to how hot it is

Ouch Jules sorry about the ankle, it's going to take a long time if you tore a ligament. Busted mine 2002 I think and it took a good 2 years before I was back to normal! totally sucked! But you live in the land of Eucalyptus, I use the oil every night on me knees, it's great to heal inflammation and keep it in check-better than Arnica I found.

Ah, Zucchini! going to plant some this weekend when I pull the the tomatoes up emoticon thanks for the inspiration.

Pity about the poor performance in your garden - maybe just too darn HOT? This side has been hectic also with watering every morning, I had to move some of my planters out of the sun- some only get the very late pm sun. Also found if I drown the seedlings with my earthworm "tea" they can take more abuse from the elements later on. Thank God for Aussie worms emoticon they are super little composters emoticon so glad I invested in a worm farm years ago :)

I don't really want the cold, wet, crappy weather either, but I'd love a little relief from those really hot days, it's been going on for 2 months with barely a change, and I've just about worn myself out!!!

Oddly after getting the garden ready and doing everything properly, the garden has been slow with some of the veggies.

The tomatoes have been slow, although the cherry tomatoes have been going gangbusters. The Swiss Chard and Beetroot have also grown well along with the Potatoes. The corn is embarrassing though, and the pumpkins and the Spaghetti squash are just now starting to get their act together. I've got 3 Spaghetti squashes on the plants so far just hoping for more.

Will plant the Broad Beans, Zucchini and Parsnip seeds this weekend to get a start on the Autumn growing. The only herbs I could get to grow were Parsley, Mint and Chives, the rest didn't even show their heads above soil!!!!

I haven't been able to do that much outside as I twisted my ankle 2 months ago and it's still acting up. I thought I had broken it but the doc says it looks like I've buggered a couple of the ligaments. Just as well we don't have anything resembling lawn at the moment as I wouldn't be able to mow it. It's very frustrating to want to do something and not be able to get around to do it

Done with summer? noooo how can you say that :) just think of those miserable dark & cold days ahead, wet everywhere, nothing grows, mud everywhere, unhappy feathered & 4 footed kids. Give me the sun anytime, might be that I embraced sun this summer(very tanned) made sure I was sensible-hat & sunglasses and lots of swimming.

How does my garden grow? loads of tomatoes & herbs - making more pesto this weekend. I concentrated more on planting my extensive herb garden last year as I am so into treating ailments with my own. Even the dogs has their own herb patch now, amazing to see how they know instinctively what to eat. The Jack Russell allergies seems to be a thing of the past so I'm happy.

What's up in your garden Flowergal?

Hey Hannah. emoticon

Been terribly hot over here and day after day of it, to the point that I'm really done with Summer. I never thought I'd say that but I have really had it with the stinking hot weather.

I've never fed my dogs dry kibble, they might get the occasional small bowl as a treat but never as a feed. I'd hate to see mine livelier, I'd never get any peace.

How has your garden been going, have you got any vegetables up and growing?

So what's up???

How is life treating you guys? What's the weather like? Any exciting news? I'm bored emoticon

From my side - got my dogs on complete Raw food(3 weeks) and very pleased with the results, Ninja dropped her half kilo, both of them so much more livelier, less sleeping during the day and they seem more alert too. AND they are loving Mommy! must say they enjoy the food a whole lot more than the dry kibbles :)

Have a great holiday!

Yes it is always hard to leave. They need so much help.My brother gets there at least twice a year. Me not so much because I am farther away and have to fly. :( Mom is 81 and dad is 88.

Years ago I could drink with the best of them, in fact I could drink a few men under the table. But as I've got older, I'm like you and don't recuperate as quickly as I used to. When I stopped smoking I virtually stopped drinking as well. I like a wine sometimes, a couple of light beers, but other than that I'm a virtual teetotaler

Nice Jules, much better without the booze...you actually get to enjoy the effort that went into the food prep, I know same this side if it's only the two of us. Hubby is a teetotaler, so if I want to drink I'm on my own and that's no fun. It's his bro that's the big drinker and of course I'm always "forced" to join in, hehe can't waste a good bottle of vino and I do love my wine emoticon jokes aside, this age thing is the pits where alcohol is concerned, takes my at least 2 days to recuperate nowadays.

No "blow in" family over here, it's just the three of us so we all work together to try to have a good time.

The biggest difference to now instead of then is we rarely drink anything alcoholic. We might have a light beer later in the day, maybe a cocktail if I can be bothered mixing it, but usually we buy 3 or 4 bottles of sparkling grape juice and sometimes sparkling apple juice. It looks festive and tastes nice but we don't make a mess of ourselves anymore!!!

I normally carry everything out to the braai shack and keep the house off limit, only the bathroom is allowed to be used. That way the cleaning is down to next to nothing, wish there was an outside loo, shall put it on my wish list :-). The shack is wired for electricity, even got a little bar fridge in there, very nice to entertain our wild family & friends in.

As far as I know it'll be a barbie for us as well, some seafood, some lamb kebabs, salads and a tropical fruit pavlova.

As long as it's easy for me to make and cook and easy to clean up after it'll do me.

It doesn't take them very long to get on with the laying.

Looks like I overly exaggerated the egg count Arlene. emoticon

I am getting about 15 eggs a day most of the hens I have are older and no longer lay.
I am in Florida now visiting my parents. When I get home I hopefully will have more chicks hatching out in a week and will have 27 new chicks arrive in the mail..I have 20 4 week old chicks in the garage and 20 7 week old chicks in the yard so things should start looking up in about 5 months LOL

I've yet to see a chicken that can lay more than one egg a day, with that many chickens and with the mix of older and younger hens you'd probably get @30 or so per day.

I know after having any farm animal, I ended up a virtual expert in animal diseases etc. I think could have quoted passages from Black's Veterinary Dictionary.

I understand where you are coming from, I used to work for a boss who was a nervous breakdown on the hoof. He was a pain in the bum.

40 laying hens WOW! so how many eggs average per hen per day?

My dream is to keep a few once I retire, can't wait! Nice to know I have friends who can supply advise when I get there.

BTW, my boss is in Switzerland at the moment......I'm trying my best to keep things going here, hectic but oh so nice emoticon lots of zen emoticon emoticon

They are a lot of work for sure. I am hatching eggs at the moment to replace old birds and to replace the ones lost due to predators. I am down about 40 birds :(
My egg customers are really bummed. I am not getting nearly the amount of eggs I did before

When we first got our chickens (before we found out who wanted to buy them) we froze them. They are only good for cooking, but all you have to do is lightly beat them and freeze them in freezer bags.

I think once you've tasted a home layed egg you never want to go back to bought ones. There is no comparison, I know the vitamin and mineral etc breakdown is the same but the taste is completely different. I'd still have them now except I'd be the ones looking after them and I really don't have the time at the moment.

Not really on subject, but I remember years ago (when I was a little girl) chickens were not as common as they are today (at least here in Victoria).

My Dad had a chook pen out the back and we always had eggs, much to the disgust of our neighbours. When they used to lay proficiently we used to preserve the eggs in earthenware containers, using a preserving liquid and every so often we had the treat of a roast chicken, which was like gold back in those days.

I chart every month what I sell and what I buy and have a running total. I even know how many eggs my girls lay each month because I count daily. at the end of every month I tally it up. But the toatls are not enough I have to break it up into smaller categories

Hehe I see that eye often with Beebee, added some cut macaroni the other day, those evil little holey things had him eyeing it from a few different directions. Billy won't even bother looking at it the food he will just flip the whole food dish...rock and all! I actually put a big river rick in his dish but he figured out a way to still flip it.
I'm getting better disguising the cooked food by adding a few almond in the bottom and layering finishing off with more nuts & a few seeds. Must say it's a nice feeling when they do tuck in, I also noticed the birds are prepared to try more stuff when it's given at the same time when the dogs are eating...strange.

That's what I was thinking too HAHAHAHA
Chucky will not touch it if it is even sunflower seeds he tosses them out of the cage. fresh stuff same thing. Sometimes it is the one eyed stare other times he tosses it. We have been trying for years now. Silly bird. My others loved nuts and pasta and veggies but I got them when they were reallyy young

Arlene, you obviously need to get your priorities in check LOLOL

My cockatoo can be a little odd about new stuff as well, you know the one eyed stare well and the outstretched leg making sure it's not going to bite??

He loves thistle flowers and pine cones. Once every 6 months I go up the road with gloves and hook and pick a pile of pine cones to keep him happy when he gets a little po'd

He has some seed but only @ a couple of tablespoons, but along with that he gets corn cobs, almonds in the shell, sometimes walnuts, millet and other bits and pieces I can forage. He loves to get out on the lawn and dig in the grass roots and the dirt, Lord only knows what he finds down there but he enjoys it and helps get rid of the capeweed that springs up!!

Peace and long life - Jules

I used to cook for my parrots all the time. This goofy guy I have now only eats parakeet seed from the store . He will not touch any other food you put in his cage It is so sad. I know it is not good for him but he was older when I got him and set in his ways :(
Think hubby will buy a used freezer LOL Men He says the new ones are too pricey. He is however looking to buy a 40+ inch flat screen TV for the bedroom ?????? I am confused hahahah

What do they say about living and learning?

It's a shame when you go to all the trouble of doing this only to have it go gacky.

Bummer Arlene....but at least you will get a new one now emoticon I know the feeling when you put effort in just to see it go on the compost heap, baked my dogs a stack of healthy doggies biscuits about a week ago and discovered this morning it had gone off. Would have frozen it if I knew(never used rice flour before) learned my lesson for the next time.

BTW I'm having great fun baking and cooking for the birds & dogs - even baked 2 huge birdie breads...hehe luckily I froze that....must say the birds are loving the new menu, even bad boy Billy seems more content these days.

Bummer when the machinery goes on the blink. I know we lost a bit when the power went out with the bushfires. We had a chest freezer so the bottom stuff stayed frozen but everything on the top had to be chucked

We got a fast storm the other day with lots of wind and a little rain. Now the temperatures are taking a dive Brrr first fire of the season in the wood stove was this morning :( We drained the water lines before .Yesterday I brought in all of the green tomatoes and wrapped them so we will still have fresh tomatoes for a while. Big bummer is my freezer died and took all of my pumpkin puree with it .I am so sad I had 15 quarts of it in there I am gonna miss all that pumpkin :(

We've had thunder, rain and lightning here all day. Typical it's our Melbourne Cup here today, it's a horse race that supposedly "stops the nation" and I swear it rains on this day every year.

I've been inside cleaning up and putting away all the groceries I got yesterday.

He's doing pretty good Arlene, sore of course but he's up and around and with minimal pain. He's been using my Tramal as they work well for his belly pain. The stupid hospital told him to take Iboprofen, he's on Warfarin and Iboprofen can thin the blood as well.....Idiots!!

I'm the same I want to do so much but the body is saying "slow down".

No rest for the wicked here, Steven (brother) is just home from hospital after a hernia operation, so I'll be taking up the slack from him, not that he does that much anyway. All will depend on what the weather is like.

We've had a cold snap here the last few days, rain and it's been reasonable cold. All we'll need is some sun out and the garden will go silly, I swear the pea seedlings have grown a couple of inches in the past few days.

That's what I figure, I've got a huge Paulownia (Chinese Empress Tree) out the front and I'm going to take a cutting and try to get another going out the back. It is the most beautiful of trees with huge leaves, I'm hoping to put a circular seat around it when it gets bigger. The good thing about these trees is they are very quick growing.

I've put in an Apricot, Apple, Orange and Lemon trees, but you have to be quick with the first two to keep the cockatoos off.

Here's a link to show the beauty of the Paulownia.

when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I can still get up and down but the pain makes me think about it hard before I do it.And it is helpful to have a hand hold to get back up.
I will be getting up and down today have to cut back some of the ice plants in the garden.

Don't ask me about my knees, I can't squat worth a damn, if I have to get down I have to sit on the ground, then there's the matter of getting up again!!!..

Ditto Jules, I have run out of potions & lotions ideas - the only effective thing I found is my eucalyptus essential oil, MSM tablets and the Transact patch but that's about it. I also started including loads of fermented foods in my diet - hope it will tweak my system in due course. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm with both of you, I hate the cold. It ever really bothered me but lately I ache all over and I'm totally useless in the cold. Give me the heat, I won't even complain when it hits over 100F
