Hi Everyone, I have been a bit quiet lately with the flu and a couple of other issues but all is well and we are looking forward to a great weekend, this weekend.

This is the plan for the week end, You can put in or take out what you want to do.....

We have a house to stay in with Roger & Brenda.We are getting up there on Friday so as Graham & Roger can play golf.

Saturday Morning - Plan to arrive at Susan's around 11 am Saturday (I will send out the address in a moment), Bring something along to share for a lunch. We will bring along a Salad & Bread Rolls.

Then who ever would like to join in are welcome to have dinner at the Theebine Hotel (might be good if we have an idea for numbers to book, so please give an indication if you would like to join us) Sat night.

Sunday Morning -  it will be a BBQ Breakfast back at Susan's Place. You will need to bring along Meat to BBQ and anything else you might like. We will take along Sauces & Mustards

Sunday Late Lunch at the old Rick's Garage Café in Palmwoods -  Then home.

Can't Wait..Should be a GREAT WEEKEND!!!

Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink (you may need to bring more than this but more details will be sent later) to share and any plants, produce or seed that you would like to share, swap or sell.

It is always a good idea to bring along a chair as we do sometimes have more visitors than chairs available at GV gardens.

RSVP required so that the address can be sent to you closer to the date. The email address you nominated when you joined will be used. Please update this if it has changed.

Late attendees welcome. Message Dianne or phone 0407691485 on the day for the address.

If you remind me, I'll bring you pigeon pea seeds.  

Comment by Susan on August 3, 2019 at 6:58

2 will be plenty thanks Roger - don’t worry Andy, the spot for them is the front corner of my property which is one that is going to be in a semi wild state that no one should walk through. 

Also, if someone has pigeon pea seeds that they wouldn’t mind sharing, I’d love some.  I’m going to plant them in front of my young subtropical, rainforest type trees to give them a pit of summer protection while they are young.

and they need to be planted somewhere where people are NOT likely to walk under them at fruiting time.

Yes Susan,

The two bunyas have been potted up into bigger pots and are looking healthy. I also have a number of bunya nuts which may sprout if planted. Do you want me to do this or are two enough? They do grow into huge trees.


Comment by Susan on July 19, 2019 at 21:31

Well guys.  I am not expecting you to buy me plants or anything so please, please, please  don’t feel obligated too.   If you are a rate payer however, and you wouldn’t mind, you could take your paid rates notice into any BCC library, they will give you a voucher for 2 free native plants. You can then go to participating local nurseries and choose two native plants which I would greatly appreciate. My plan for the block is to revegetate the front strip with densely planted natives in Liu of a fence.  I also would like to slowly remove the weeds from the creek bed and replant there.  Flowering natives especially but grasses for the creek line would also be great. 

I know Roger you said you might have bunya nut seedlings for me? I would still be keen if you have any spare.  

Thanks heaps guys and I’m really looking forward to the trip.

Thanks Susan, I have changed the dates now. Looking forward to a fun time.

Comment by Susan on July 8, 2019 at 6:25

Hi Dianne, I’ve finally sorted myself out.  The date will need to be changed to the 21st and 22nd of September. 

Comment by Dianne Caswell on June 6, 2019 at 9:20

Well it looks like my idea to come to your Patch as an alternative to a GV at your place this year was not such a bad idea after all Susan, sounds like we will all have a wonderful week end away, can't wait. As soon as we have the date those of us who can't or are beyond the camping age will book somewhere  as close to the Patch as Possible.

Susan, I thought it might be a good idea if you could tell us the trees that you might want to plant on your property so we know what to bring to plant.
