    OMG I completely missed it! blush. laugh. blush. laugh again. The really embarrassing bit is that I started it ... & then forgot. blush. sigh. omg.
    NO Miss Eco ... dozers come in testosterone yellow & THAT'S IT!
    Maybe we could start up a contract business with pink ones - guaranteed to only work on sustainable projects in an environmentally empathetic manner :)

    Yes please. They'd even have a place in the dash board to keep your tampons.

    I reckon they should have a place on the dash board to display your degrees. Because women have been defined for far too long by their uterus.

    I can just imagine conservative state governments outlawing female permi bulldozer gangs

    lol :)

    I was cruising around a few "homesteading" & "survivalist" type sites the other night & one of the articles I came across was regarding how to deal with dead bodies after catastrophes/disasters/shtf scenario's. I didn't read it - but I'm sure "Make a swale with them" was right up there in the top 3, & if it wasn't - it should have been :)

    hehehe...

    a swell swale of swolen smurfs?

    Helen, in the Humanure Handbook there is a section on how to deal with animals and funnily coincidentally enough in another recent read (Encyclopedia of Animal Care (formerly Black's Vetinery Dictionary), 4th edition, 1967) i was reading about methods of incinerating large animal remains.

    and no, i don't have any to contend with, i don't even keep animals larger than worms other than what wanders through the yard, but for some reason i just pick up books and read them...

    It's OK, it was a rather morbid scene to see anyway.

    Took some more shots showing progress in the garden for anyone who is interested.

    Today was National Climate Change Action Day. I did what any decent permie would do and donned my red shirt and headed out to join the crowd. The organisers were impressed with the size of the crowd as it was double what they were expecting. I have to say I was disappointed - there were more people in the shopping centre than there were at Quota Park I'm sure. All the local (council, state and federal politicians) were invited. Not a single one graced us with their presence. Pity - I was really looking forward to chanting "Leave the coal in the hole" loudly when Clive Palmer took the stage (Sad but true - he's my MP!). The speaker was inspiring and I signed a few petitions and donated some coin to the Bushfire Appeal. Doesn't seem enough to change the world really….

    Anyway this is us in Nambour -

    Did anyone else go to their local action day?

    I was holed up with the sorest of backs after tackling ten tonne of bamboo. Good on you for getting there.

    Was good to see some pics of your garden in progress, your growth is really astounding. Here is finally going after some rain, all the while here is me still googling wicking beds and trickle tape. These seasons are further and further apart, or more pronounced than ever i.e. all dry and all wet.

    Make use of what you have. Permaculture at its core.

    Plus Eco would have learnt that at school, it's a history staple.

    The photos of your garden are lovely :) I love the chook dome :) And the zucchini :) The comfrey in my garden does this ... pops up everywhere ... but I don't mind because I can always use it for something or other :)
    Are you in the action day photo? It's only a thumb nail for me - it won't enlarge :(
