Oh the glorious rain

Well folks, when I left you last, the tank was dry, I was reduced to watering fruit trees with rinsing washing water and my grass was just about dead (in fact, one more week and it may have given its last gasp).  Since then, while the heat and humidity have been unbearable, the storms have been a welcome relief in the afternoon.  We are also very fortunate out my way as we have managed to avoid the hail and strong winds but caught all the glorious rain.

Not much is happening…

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
