One Hundred and forty four

Until last weekend it had been a dry month, only 30 or so mm, then it RAINED. Month total 144mm. Every gully was running with runoff and the creek was a torrent.
Heres the BOM rainfall for that week..we are right near the blue spot. Perhaps one of the few places left in Aus with above average rain?

This ones normally half full

And this is normally dry

The weather suited our furry friends

First crop of Calendula drying


  1. The rain we had was just FANTASTIC, wasn't it? Loved every drop, even if it meant staying inside for a week!! Nice to see flooding for once, seems like years that there has been flooding in these parts.

  2. Hi ... just stopping in to say hello and see how the farm is doing. I hope all of you are enjoying the season!

    Best wishes!

  3. Hi there
    My partner and I have just read your whole blog, so interesting and well written.
    We live in Carrajung, so not far from where your property is. We have a few fruit trees here.
    How's it all going on the farm lately? Wishing you all the best for 2010!
