Thanks Susanne :) Hard to say goodbye at the end.

So sorry for your loss Lissa, both you and your other dog will miss Freya who was such a big part of your lives for so long.
Comment by Lissa on April 1, 2016 at 19:01

Freya gave us close to 14yrs of pleasure and fun. Her health failed in the last couple of days but she was still a happy girl at the end.

So sorry to hear that, Lissa.  Sometimes people don't understand what a loss it is to lose a loyal companion.  Plant a fruit tree in a special place and talk to it just like the dog, even though there is no replacement.

Oooohhhh yummy. Lucky you :) 

On the downside, I had to euthanase my 14yr old dog yesteday. The downside to owning dogs.

Comment by Christa on April 1, 2016 at 18:34

Yes Lissa and Susanne, they are mini foxies as you may see, very little 6 week old, brother and sister. That is a little cat dish they are eating out of. They are from a Goondiwindi station and are from work dogs. The bitch had 9 puppies. I just have to watch that I don't fall over them and don't cuddle them to much.

Are these new babies Christa?

Comment by Susanne on April 1, 2016 at 15:31
They would give the chickens a run... Chicken tonight :) surely they will keep the Turkeys and possums away.
Comment by Christa on April 1, 2016 at 12:00

Not quite the chickens that I was hoping for, but I suppose they may be big enough to chase the turkeys away.

Nice links - thanx Dave. 

Northside Produce just started charging $12 per female Jap.  That's getting expensive.

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
