Teach the kids to grow their own food and to operate and maintain their own equipment. You are better preparing them for their future. Good Luck, Rick

It's winter down there right now isn't it? Is it warm enough where you are to grow year round, or is it still a seasonal thing? I am sure you have a much longer growing season than I do where I am.

ty every 1 my daughter is always helping me when she comes out to the property ( bush ) with me on school holidays


it does get cold here in the lower south east corner Queensland but can crop all yr round  we do get heavy frosts but my small garden is sheltered from that where it is 


going to let the hey mulch lay for a bit 1st i think , to see if i can get my petrol mulcher running , but if not dig it in , sweat sweat sweat    

i have still got 15 odd bales of hay to use as i want it & going down the road to my eldest Brothers place to collect some Cow pooh for liquid fertilizer in the next week if work dont start up by then
