What Bug is That? - November 2018

It's wonderful having an entymologist in the group. Debbie was as organised and patient as ever. She stepped us all through the insect world with a good dose of dry humour. Covering the life stages of insects, the different groupings and how to tell them apart, and identifying the crawlies we had brought along.

The food was a magnificent spread, and the venue was just perfect for a comfortable sit down presentation. Much thanks to Trish for hosting and going the extra mile with preparations. We were in gorgeous surrounds and under cover while looking out onto this:

Diary Dates

Garden Visit to Leela’s in Dorrigo

Saturday December 15, 3pm - 6pm

Hi all,

it's been a couple of years since some of you last saw my 'toy farm'; I have been busy experimenting and shaping my adventure garden and food forest. Having had some successes with grafting, I have planted new fruit avenues and optimistically snuck a few tropicals into the shrubbery 😉

I am also now experimenting with colonising the rafters in my conservatory; always keen to utilize a discovered microclimate! Some other projects are having greater and lesser successes, but still enjoying the challenge and experience of it all.

Whilst the summer weather is heating up for you all, come and enjoy the relative cool with me up here in the mountains. Bring a christmassy plate to share for this late afternoon gathering.
