    Growing HBWR

    Thanks everyone, that's good to know. I knew they would have pest potential; didn't know 30 metres, I thought I'd read 30 feet! Currently growing it up part of the house and am draping over / framing the windows with it, might need to rethink that!

    Growing HBWR

    Hi. So I've been growing 2 x HBWR vines for about 12 months. They've been growing like stink. Big healthy leaves, vines must be 6 or 8 metres long. In the last couple of weeks, just as its warming up and me thinking flowers might come with Spring, the leaves have started to yellow and die back. I initially wondered if it was lack of water since I haven't had to water for so long due the amount of rain and soil moisture, wondered if the soil had finally dried enough to require a drink, but nope, don't think that's it. There are still many healthy leaves, but perhaps only half as many as there should be. Those leaves that are yellowing are doing so fairly uniformly throughout the whole leaf, starting with the "flesh" of the leaf and leaving green veins, leading to the veins then also yellowing and the leaf (and stem supplying it) eventually withering and dying. The main stems appear fine. This isn't part of the plant's cycle is it? Photos would be helpful to you I guess, but I'm lazy right now, maybe later if my description above isn't helpful enough. Located a little west of Bris. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Psychoactive Saffron (Crocus sativus)

    I'm keen to just try some, not heard of saffron being of interest before this, but also keen on brewing some. I am currently experimenting with my mead (technically melomel) by adding damiana to my second ferment. Will know at xmas time how that goes... Seems like saffron could be something to try as well.

    Sorry all, something came up. Both of my dogs passed last year about 6 months apart, and I've been missing dogs in my life and looking and waiting for a pup for a few months now. Went to to meet a pup yesterday. Bring him home next week. In other fabtastic news, A NEW PUP! Just saw "fabtastic" above and yes it was a typo, but I like it so its staying. A wonderful joining of both fabulous and fantastic, I think.

    Keen. Been slack here lately, have lurked a few times; just feeling flat.

    NP for me, I'll get there with Sharxxy at some point. The spots you mention were all closed off again relatively recently due to ferals leaving their crap (literally crap) and some unfortunate homeless with nowhere else to go had been long staying as well, but of course there are no facilities to support them doing that. They get closed off periodically every few years, maybe they've opened up again. Pretty sure Twinnies is still closed off, as is Savages, but I just need the time to drive to the others to see if they are still accessible. Think the Lowood stretch is closed too. Used to be able to get upstream of Savages and bypass the bollards etc, but I think residential development has closed that access.

    I've been busy man and haven't had a chance. Dunno if I'll get the chance this weekend either...

    Fuck it! Go away for a bit and come back and find all the jobs have been given to ya! Right: - The scout camp one is camping right on the river bank and is 30" closer to Bris (both good), but was always pretty shallow and weedy there (no good) - The hipcamp one is camping on a flat a little above the river, located 10 mins closer to Bris. Fishing is a very small walk. Good part of the river here, deeper, good flow. Only two cars but? Would need to car pool from a convenient location... No other campers to contend with. Unknown how far the site is located from the owners. So of these two I reckon the second one. Not perfect, but would be fine. @sharxx101 We should go for a drive on the weekend to see if there is river access back at some of the spots around the place.

    Found a couple. One I knew of close to Fernvale looks to have closed. There are one or two council reserves that free to access, but will have to put up with others close by and previous visitors rubbish. Have a look at these. https://wikicamps.com.au/site/Queensland/Campground/Allawah+Scout+Camp/279970 https://www.hipcamp.com/en-AU/queensland/weefarm-brisbane-river-camping/weefarm-brisbane-river-camping#group_size=1&adults=1 The first one is closer for those from Bris and has showers and toilets. Pretend camping really. Says it gets busy though but I reckon with our numbers we could claim a large section. The second one is a private place, up to 20 people I think it said, but only two vehicles? There is of course the camping area on the other side of where we catch up?
