Say your goodbyes to these beautiful old redgums who've been living in the Middle Creek area long before it had that name - 200-400 years previously, at least. Say goodbye to the young trees too. There aren't too many growing on adjacent farmland. NONE of these trees are protected.
Trad Pads don't come much more traditional than this. It is a reflection of a life. Please watch the video. I was taken by the real estate man's instructions and intentions to leave the house as is. Of course what happens now is up to "the investor" who purchased it. I hope Fairfax ensures that it keeps this record.
My compost bin is, at the moment, half full. I sometimes leave the lid off to catch a bit of rain. On my last visit to the bin, this is what I found.
My friend Alida said: They're very pretty, but I do suggest your compost needs more nitrogenous material so bacteria grow as well. This seems to have too much carbohydrate in it. Add manures if you can, or fresh green waste. And turn it.
I said no to the manure. A couple of inches below these beautiful things is a couple of inches of horse manure. I did say yes to the turning. Will see to that.
I might be --- although I thought my doing up furniture days were over, this is a temptation!
The CNC is a lovely place to do a course. Have done a couple ofLarissa Romensky AbcOpen Ballaratcourses there. After all, Creswick is only a suburb of Ballarat - just a bit of a hop, step and a jump!! There has already been someone on the CSN Facebook site wanting to come up from Melbourne!
Pssst... I'm talking out of hand but, I'm a bit excited about some workshops we are planning for the near future... UPHOLSTERY! Yes you heard it right! It's a DIY dream and it's coming true very soon. Let us know if you're interested.smile emoticon
