End of Oct

During the last two weeks of October the pace quickened.

The windbreak was given a thorough weeding
and with recent rain has noticeably grown.

The shade house is up!

The shed is up!!

The baled soil from Trees For Life
has arrived in readiness for the first Distribution Depot
to be held in Peterborough.

Concrete Slabs

The guys have done a great job with the concrete slabs for the shed

and the shade house.

They have even prepared the site for the Cob Oven and left a message!

I can almost smell the pizzas and hear the friendly chat
as we enjoy eating them.

Slab Prep and Windbreak Growth

With recent rain the windbreak is looking very weedy.

The Wallowa Wattles Acacia calamifollia are growing strongly
and the Old Man Saltbush Atriplex nummularia
is out-growing it’s protective cover.

The site of the slab for the future Cob Oven is measured up.

Shade house slab site prepared with form work and plastic.
As is the shed slab on the other side of the tap.
