Well, the past 3 months have cruised by. We have had a surprising lack of helpers, so getting a lot less done than normal - more of the maintenance type things and ongoing projects such as trying to dog proof the fence along the neighbour's. There has been a lot of time taken in preserving the harvest - bottling tomatoes, pickling and fermenting vegetables, and so on. Despite low rainfall, there is much greenery around and alot of the weeds seem to grow pretty well now. There is a good amount of moisture around because of the heavy due we get each evening. Hopefully more of the citrus trees will produce next season, as this lemon is doing:

A day trip to 'underground creek' in Girraween gives us a break:
