    Keen as a bean! We're back into kombucha again too, so I'll bring some for a taste off. Should have some perry (pear cider mead) drinkable by then too.

    Yeah, I could have explained myself better... Plants please. But I'd take some fresh hbwr seeds. They germinate easy?
  3. Hi Looking for the above, I'm located SEQ. Hope you can help. Thanks

    This. I have a fair bit of trouble with animals, or at least did. Rats and mice eat everything, possums like to sample a bit of everything here and there and king parrots love green tomatoes! I live kinda outer-urban / semi-rural fringe and so was (still am?) pretty conflicted about using baits due the risk of secondary kills of owls, pythons etc, but I just had to. Always loved the vege garden at the old place but didn't garden here for a while due being despondent about losing the constant battle with wildlife. I have raised beds, use low secondary kill baits sparingly and tight bird netting sealing to the edges of the garden. Still had problems with rats and mice though. Worked out they were tunnelling up through the bed, I assume nesting in the bed as well. The solution (I hope, been working for a few months now so I think I got it), was to dig out part of my garden bed, lay a physical barrier of overlapping chicken / bird wire and put my soil back on top. No issues since and not having to use baits at all near / in the garden anymore. Haven't caught any possums or reptiles in the bird netting either.

    She lives! And maybe, just maybe, a couple of the cuts I made might night be too.

    Yeah, no doubt WC. Two of them have been frequent visitors for years and bring their young too. They didn't breed last year, or the young didn't survive or something. So I got complacent because they've never done anything like it before, and I got it interested by moving the plant in and out. They are very intelligent birds, and curious. I've never kept a cockatoo, but had a rainbow lorikeet for 20 odd years and parrots are amazing companions.

    So the NL khat I up-potted about 8 weeks ago and have been daily placing on the deck railing in the sun and putting under cover at night, got chewed off at the base, every sucker and shoot, by a cockatoo this morning. Was looking fantastic too, had put on some size, new suckers, beautiful tips. Really annoyed. I made cuttings within 10 minutes or so of it occurring, but I dunno how good I am with that. First time for everything I guess
