Hi all, My name is SOP, which stands for Standard Operating Procedure (a remnant from a previous employ). I do have another name but only people that PM me will ever find it out. I live and work in Brisbane with a young family. I like trees and am so passionate about them that it makes non-tree people cringe. I'm not educated or well-read, my time is precious and I constantly feel like I'm battling uphill. I'm happy, very happy and don't think (fingers crossed) that will ever change. Things have changed since I posted last, we bought another property which has quadrupled my botanical workload due to an increase of grassed space and a lack of large-scale techniques and tools available to me. Unfortunately, my photo blogging has suffered and with a change in direction, the garden that I worked on the most has gone into disrepair. Disrepair means dry and lacking plants and nutrients. Not to say that I have lost any passion, far from it. Regarding the new property, I do like to share and by posting random photos of anything, surely someone out there may learn something or provide me feedback to improve on my ideas. Unfortunately, the people that surround me are .... private and I do not want to offend the easily offended. If you want to learn about it, PM me and I will share some pics and I'll ask you not to share online until I decide which way I'm going to go. Here is the link to my original photo blog, I probably won't recreate the thread that I had here. Obviously scroll to the bottom and wok your way back, there hasn't been much added: https://imgur.com/a/LGqVY Here is a link to the new pets (if you like cute little silkie chicks - click here): https://imgur.com/a/eZ0HO Here is a pic from the BOGI (Brisbane Organic Growers) held today, you can see Bazman's BioChar tent in the back: I hope everyone that I ever conversed with or read my posts is well and I do look forward to taking a back seat and reading about what everyone has been up to.
