Property in decline, lots of citrus dying and deficient (10-15 years old), pasture and blady grass in control. Deco soil with declining OM, dries out hard and fast, bamboo on upper slopes drying out and eating nitrogen in significant areas around them. 2 hard years, not on-site, can't work out what kangaroo, wallabies, cattle or deer will eat until it's too late. Cattle and deer can't be stopped. Planted Choko under lantana thicket on fence, died in the dry. Killed Choko and Comfrey here in Brisbane too in dry (hydrophobic soils) after the rains stopped. So far, Casuarina cunninghamiana establishing on eastern boundary, Leucaena not getting head past guards, Acacia fimbriata doing ok, Albizia lebbeck (lost one to frost) growing slowly, Crotalaria grahamiana naturalised and germinating ok if the rain comes. Visible stumps in grass from previous owners employing neighbour to cut out trees to make mowing easier, burning all the biomass to keep it clean, no idea what the stumps were. One large Acacia remains, harbours best Citrus and one Olive in its canopy though they are suppressed. Find out that the Acacia also had a target on it (and still does from neighbour), can't point out the obvious. Discovered it's easier to work backwards with zones when not on-site, Zone 4 (which is where a lot of my photos stem from of caged trees) is made up of hardy bee fodder natives and sliding back up the hill from there, frost smashed a few which was a long time inbetween. Vetiver goes in wherever I deem un-growable. Planted hardy fruit trees (mostly Acerola cherry cuttings), not really a drop of rain since and lost most. Black Mulberry cuttings constantly hacked back by stray cattle. Will try A.fimbriata again, sowed a lot of A.lebbeck, some M.alba cuttings and will try some Hovea acutifolia to fill gaps. Scattered a lot of C.grahamiana seed further than existing range, waiting on rain. Bought some Cajanus inoculant, and rotting in fridge waiting for soil moisture.
