Sian found this interesting article on pruning citrus. Citrus Tree Pruning
Great pre-Christmas turnout yesterday. Cafes are busy, so lots of compost to turn. Potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers herbs, greens… summer
650g tomato picked. Fruit fly free, thanks to fly exclusion bags!
Bring some Christmas food and drink on tuesday.!
Shame that the lovely gates Andrew made were so damaged by moron tree removal contractors. If a gate is locked, most people would knock or call the owners, if they have a delivery. These cowboys just wrench the gates off their hinges and break the latch, dump their load (saves them $500) blocking the entry. Who does that? Is it illegal dumping? Certainly vandalism.
The streamwatch group tested the water quality yesterday, getting a bit better at it.
November 30 there is morning tea at the Australian Museum for AM volunteers and we will pick up our WaterBug Blitz kit.
Next Streamwatch testing Sunday 2nd Dec 10.30am.
First water bug blitz session: 8th Dec 10.30am

Mulberry time. Will good crop this year. Sharon has been cooking up a storm in preparation for our Garden Party on Nov 4th.
My family had the leftovers (not that there was much!) of the delicious spring soup cooked at the garden yesterday, as part of Fair Food Week. Vegetables were picked washed and cooked on our second rocket stove. So many vegetables…. leek, spring garlic, potato, asparagus, broad beans, cauliflower, snow and snap peas, carrots, fennel bulb, celery, parsley. Quite a tonic!
Thanks to Thomas for organising, and welcome to a few new members.
If anyone is free this afternoon, Matt and I are going to start creating a garden bed to grow food on the little strip next to the Post Office. Starting with cardboard and mulch, compost.
