    Hello all ....there are plenty of names I recognise and even more new ones. The dynamics of the site have changed a bit since I was last here, it will be interesting to see how members interact now. I have moved YET AGAIN but now have an inground vegie patch again (3 yrs in containers) and the chooks come next week. I am buying a round hay baler, cover with shade cloth to use as a chook tractor home. It is $450 but will resell very easily close to cost in my planned return to Glen Innes in 2 yrs. We are now in Longreach growing tomatoes in winter and not much in summer. Our bank problems have greatly improved thanks to the Banking Ombudsman and another 2 yrs of wages should see us in a much better place. Now I am planting and growing again I will be checking in regularly.
    Cheers
    Cathy, formerly of Blue Sapphire C'van Park, Glen Innes

    Hi Cathy : )
    Nice to see you returning to the fold : )
    Pretty awesome to be able to grow things in the ground after years in containers I would imagine, & when the chooks get there it will really seem like home : ) I hope they like their hay baler when they get there : )

    Hi Andrew and thanks to the other welcomes

    we did get a little rain before winter enough to get the Cooper running for a bit. We will need early rains next years for the properties to be happy. Longreach is much more livable than the Isa and the people are great. Heaps of tourists in town at present which makes the town more vibrant. Not counting the days yet but looking forward to getting back to Glen Innes.
    Cheers
    Cathy
