Growing local

Well the rain has destroyed my Vegi Garden, the Butterfly Caterpillars have eaten all the new growth on my Fruit Trees, and what hasn't been eaten or battered by the rain and falling tree branches has grown like mad. So it is time to start the Vegi Garden over again and give the Fruit trees some attention when the little grubs have finished their consuming.

I guess if these are the only problems I have from all the heavy rain, I should be thankful. I am sorry to hear some of our members have had problems after the rain and I do hope everything is well under way getting fixed and you are getting back to some normality.

Yes there is always an upside to every downturn....

Upside is all the free uncontaminated water now held in the soil for some months to come.

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.)

The Vetiver Community Project 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.
