Gearing Up For The Snow Season

Dinner Plain Celebrates 30 Years Of Stunning Alpine Architecture


As the first snowflakes
fall on the multi-leveled
pitched rooftops of
Dinner Plains iconic
houses this winter,
the residents will
be celebrating more
than just the start of
the ski season: this
architectural marvel
of alpine Australia is
turning 30 years old.

with an alpine landscape


rare in the Australian
environment were
key elements inspiring
visionary architect Peter
McIntyres early design for
the village.

When it comes to
architecture and vision,
there is nothing quite like
Dinner Plain anywhere
else in the country, says
Malcolm Macpherson, a
long-term resident who is
currently penning a book
on the history of Dinner
Plain.

Built of stone, timber and


corrugated iron and often
boasting magnificent stone
fireplaces, each blends
in beautifully with the
surrounding snow gums
and the high plains.

Mr Macpherson says the


uniqueness of the village
with its strict design
specifications that echo
the cattlemens heritage of
the High Country, paired

His idea was that the


buildings would blend in
with the landscape, Mr
Macpherson says.

McIntyres vision became


a reality in 1986 when
the iconic Dinner Plain
Hotel opened its doors
to the public. And the
rest is history. Today,
Dinner Plain has become
a family favourite for
winter escapes and also a
popular spot for hikers and

tourers along the Great


Alpine Road in summer,
and it remains the only
freehold land above the
snowline.
The history of the village
itself is relatively young,
but the area of Dinner
Plain has long been a
sanctuary. It was first
a resting place for the
indigenous peoples of the
region which traversed
the long line of the
mountaintops, stopping
to camp in the protected
nook of the Dinner Plain
area.

The site of Dinner Plain


village was originally part
of 640 acres selected by
Rundells of Flourbag Plain
and was then known as
Rundells Paddock, Mr
Macpherson says.
When the coaches were
running between Omeo
and Bright, they would
stop here for midday
dinner, hence the area
became known as Dinner
Plain.
These days, Dinner
Plain is a sanctuary of a

different sort, providing


a permanent home for
residents as well as a
mountain retreat for
travellers who come to
enjoy the beauty of the
alps in the comfort of the
village.
Its a wonderful place
for families to stay
who want to enjoy the
snow experience, Mr
Macpherson says.

will be throwing a party


on Sunday 12 June to
coincide with the official
opening of the snow
season.
From 4pm, therell be
drinks, snacks and bush
poetry out near Crisps Hut,
followed by fireworks at
6pm and two celebratory
dinners to choose from at
either Graze or the Dinner
Plain Hotel.
More information can
be found by visiting
visitdinnerplain.com.au

To celebrate its 30-year


milestone, Dinner Plain

Later, it was a haven for


the High Country pioneers
who ran cattle through the
rugged landscape prior to
the formation of the Alpine
National Park.
And, significantly, it
was also a stop on the
cliffhanging coach ride
across the mountains.

Australias Highest Brewery Opens In Dinner Plain


Melting snow and clear
unpolluted skies make the
waters of the high Victorian
Alps some of the purest
in Australia. And its this
unadulterated ingredient
water from snow melt
that has inspired Blizzard
Brewing Company founder
Mark Hubbard to produce
Australias newest brews,
carefully crafted by an
award-winning brewer.

When you go to a vineyard


you can taste the influences
of the environment on the
wine. Thats what Im mostly
excited about in our beer;
were brewing with the

freshest water available to


any brewer in Australia.

Nestled among the snow


gums at Dinner Plain, 1550
metres above sea level,
Blizzard Brewing Company
opened its doors at Easter,
with its brews served at
venues throughout Dinner
Plain, Hotham and Falls
Creek.
But its at the brewery
itself where visitors get the
ultimate beer experience,
with the opportunity to
witness live brews and
taste the locally sourced
ingredients separately,

including hops from


Myrtleford and lavender
from Harrietville.

We have a tasting deck


over the brew house where
you can actually look down
and see whats happening,
Hubbard says.
Bringing the ingredients
together is head brewer
Alan Sheppard, co-founder
of Barcelonas Edge
Brewing, which was voted
the Top New Brewer in the
World by Rate Beer in 2014.
Hes kicked off the menu
with six unique takes on a
pale ale, amber ale, larger,
IPA and kolsch. There is

even an aromatic lavender


larger on tap which
Hubbard affectionately calls
beer for my dear crafted
to sway his wifes non-beerdrinking taste buds. It has
worked.

The Brandy Creek Kolsch


will be very popular after
a big day out on the
slopes because its very
approachable and doesnt
have too much bitterness in
it, Hubbard says.

As for his favourite, its the


Avalanche Amber Ale.

For those who do like a


hoppy taste, the Powder
Pale Ale will be something
theyll go for.

Its so smooth and


delicious, he says, adding
it will be a popular choice
as the snow falls this winter.
But outstripping this winter
classic, Hubbard predicts
Blizzards German-style
kolsch will be the best
seller on the mountain this
season.

Blizzard Brewing Company


is located right at the base
of the ski run at Dinner
Plains Snow Park, and its
the ability to slide straight
off the run and into the
brewery that has Hubbard
most excited. Its a dream

hes carried with him since


moving to Australia from
Colorado, United States,
more than 20 years ago.
Growing up in Colorado,
I knew that in the Rocky
Mountains all good resorts
have breweries, says
Hubbard. Sometimes two
or three.
I love the alpine areas in
Victoria. This place needs
to have a brewery to match
the Rocky Mountains and
bring a new element to the
alpine visitor experience.
Thats why I want to have it
located here, he says.

4. Deglaze the pot with red wine then add the olives and tomato's.
5.

Once the tomato and rice mixture has thickened, begin adding the stock one cup at a

rice is cooked al dente.

6. Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and salt

method of 3 parts water to 1 part rice.

To Tempt The Taste Buds

So who is behind Tristas Kitchen?

It was time to bring in even


more help, and who better
to ask than my little brother
Dylan!

added sugars, salts and


preservatives. It is doing
our bodies major damage,
and it is also pretty costly
as well! We also all want to
spend time with our family
and friends on weekends,
but meal prep is so time
consuming!

Thatd be us; Trista,


Bronson and Dylan
Interlandi.

Together we make an
unstoppable team working
to nourish as many people
across Victoria as possible.
We are a meal preparation
company, who specialises
in preparing and delivering
fresh, healthy meals to help
you reach and maintain
your goals.
Born and raised on a farm
in the Strzelecki Hills, with
Italian and Dutch nationality
we had no choice but to eat
eat eat!. Wherever we went
there was food, homemade,
fresh and delicious.
Our aim is to re invent the
food that we grew up with,
to help you maintain a
healthy lifestyle and reach
your goals with our nutrition

packs and calorie controlled


menu. Using lean meats,
fresh produce and fresh
herbs, we are preparing
your meals the traditional
way. Our meals are
delivered fresh, weekly.
There are no hidden
ingredients, no
preservatives, no frozen
deliveries and most of all...
they are made with 100%
commitment to supplying
you with our knowledge
of the traditional cooking
methods.
I launched Trista's Kitchen
in May last year. As a
working mum, I know how
hard it is to prepare healthy
meals and maintain that
lifestyle. It is too easy to go
into the supermarket and
grab something simple, but
that something simple is
full of hidden ingredients,

After 14 years of working


in the beauty industry, I
spent my last day as a
beauty therapist. After just
6 months of launching
the kitchen, with my
brothers by my side, we
built our own registered
commercial kitchen, with all
the qualifications required.
Renovations began as
we started transforming
an outdoor area into a
commercial kitchen with
council approval.

I started preparing meals


for my busy friends in my
spare time. Word got out
and social media was
launched, orders were
taken manually by email,
and the Koonwarra store
started ordering my gluten
free bread, which is still a
weekly delivery to this day.
From preparing 60 meals
a week for friends, it soon
got to 200. Many sleepless
nights, long days, working
2 jobs, raising a family and
maintaining a household, I
wondered how I got through
it all. 200 meals was huge.
I was so excited to keep
moving forward but I had
reached my limit.
My brother, Bronson,
offered his services to
help in the kitchen. I was
appreciative to have his
help. As we took more and
more orders, we soon hit
600 meals. Many more
sleepless nights and long
days while we got a new
routine into place. We were
learning every week of new
ways to multi task to be
more time efficient.

We purchased a delivery
van and now cover a wide
area from Leongatha to
Phillip Island, Traralgon,
Warragul, Mornington and
Melbourne.
We employed kitchen hands
and delivery drivers, and
we have a great range of
pick up points available for
customers to collect their
meals. We now prepare an
average of 1000 meals per
week.
Next, our goal is to help
out the local football clubs.
We can now wholesale
our fresh, healthy meals
and family size dishes to
cater for all the local clubs
that want to fuel their club
members with the correct
nutrition.
After intense training
sessions and the hard,

physical game days, it is


crucial that the players
receive the correct
nutritional values in their
meals to be able to perform
at their peak.
We are putting something
back into the flow of history
that's going to help the
community and help other
people, so that 50 years
from now, people will
know we didn't just have
a passion, but we cared
about making something
that people can benefit
from. Our goal is to inspire
you too to live the best
version of yourself, not only
physically but mentally as
well.

yummy, healthy treats

Boy Out Of The Country


Touring locally this month
will be the excellent play
"Boy Out Of The Country"
written and directed by
Felix Nobis.

With a cast of five, a single


musician and a rollicking
storyline, "Boy out of
the Country" is the ideal
touring show. Funny, fast
paced, honest and written
in an Australian vernacular
reminiscent of Banjo
Paterson, this production
tells a story of land, family
and belonging.
This play is starring June
Clifton, Martin Blum,
Amanda LaBonte, Chris

Bunworth and Trent


Baker, is produced by
Wolf Heidecker, featuring
lighting and set design by
Rob Sowinski and music
by Bang Mango Cools.
Fusing high drama with
laugh out loud comedy,
"Boy out of the Country"
emerged out of the
Melbourne Theatre
Company Affiliate Writers
Scheme and has been
awarded the R. E. Ross
Trust Script Development
Award.

This really is a great


story. A family property,
worthless for generations,

is suddenly zoned as
part of a regional housing
estate to accommodate
an ever increasing urban
sprawl. At this moment
of shifting economies
and loyalties, Hunter
returns from a seven year
absence. Finding his
boyhood house boarded
up and his mother in a
retirement home, Hunter
goes in search of answers.
And he starts with his
brother Gordon......

than 5 years. Their fantastic


friendship with one of the
shyest birds on earth gave
them the opportunity to take
footage, which has never been

for this film. The film runs for

Letter To The Editor

Golden Beach A Hidden Gem

Dear Editor,

I find your paper extremely


interesting and informative
and enjoy finding out
about places nearby but
about which I know very
little.
To this end I would like to
suggest a little village on
the 90 Mile Beach that is
worthy of promotion and I
think your paper would be
a great way of achieving
this.
Golden Beach, less than

a 30 minute drive from


Sale, is a hidden gem. It
has had some unfortunate
publicity in the past due to
greedy developers, but it
is really quite charming.

Apart from an excellent


general store, friendly
takeaway, lovely
restaurant (Olivers) and
two Real Estate Agencies
there is a golf club, a hall,
church, CFA and Surf
Club. There is also a large
Summer camping ground.
I found this village by

accident and have to


admit to having a vested
interest there (I bought a
building block and plan to
build one day).
I certainly wouldnt have
invested in Golden Beach
if I didnt like it, so I think
other people would like to
know about it as well.
Im sure if you were
to do a story, the local
community would
be happy to place
advertisements in your
paper.

Hoping you can find the


time to have a look for
yourself and see what you
think about Golden Beach
on the fabulous 90 Mile
Beach.
Sincerely
Geoffrey Hamilton
Warragul 3820
Dear Geoffrey,
Thank you for taking the
time to write to us. We
love hearing our readers
thoughts and comments

on how to make The


Gippslander a more
enjoyable read. We
have considered your
suggestion to report on
the hidden gem of Golden
Beach. We will endevour
to visit and write a feature
about this wonderful part
of our region. We thought
leading into spring may be
an ideal time to visit and
experience what Golden
Beach has to offer.
Thank you Geoffrey once
again and watch this space.

If anyone wishes to make


suggestions on where
to visit, please do not
hesitate to contact us
and we will see what
we can do for you and
your favorite Gippsland
destination.
Kind regards,
Megan Russell

Skate-Park Opens In Loch Sport


Loch Sport's new skatepark is now officially
open for skateboarders,
scooters and BMX riders.

The skate-park area has


fantastic views and is
in a beautiful location.
Community fundraising
came up with $10,000 for
the project with additional
funds provided by the
state government and
Wellington Shire. The
park was designed with
beginners and advanced
riders in mind, so it's a
great place to learn to

skate or ride or just flex


your existing skills. So if
you're just starting out,
improving your skills or
re-living your Tony Hawk
era glory days, this place
is perfect for you.

The new skate-park is


located at Lake Street,
Loch Sport.

has gone from strength
to strength, and this year,
we celebrate our 10th

$5,000 of prizes, all donated
by local businesses and
families. Our main sponsor
is the Trafalgar and District

Maxine Kiel South Gippslands Citizen on the Year 2016


Standing on any stage
and hearing your name
announced, is the most
humbling experience that
I have experienced. To be
honoured with the title of
South Gippslands Citizen
of the Year as recognition
of the things that you
do, because you want
to, and are passionate
about, is very fulfilling. Our
communities are made
up of many volunteers all
contributing to make our
towns the places that we
want to live.

with the already sealed


section leading into Mirboo
North and beyond. The
Baw Baw Shire completing
their section a couple of
years ago, and now the
South Gippsland Shire
completing their section.
Being frustrated with the
lack of a bus shelter in
Mirboo North, the local
community group, Mirboo
Country Development,
of which Im President,
funded a Bus Shelter to
assist the local community
who travel with public

embraced my role with


the Sub Branch. My
interest and determination
is particularly focused
on making sure that
our Veterans and their
families are looked after
and that their sacrifices
are never forgotten. With
this in mind, I arranged
for the dedication to WW1
soldiers buried in the
Mirboo North Cemetery
to be honoured with the
placement of ceramic
Poppy Tiles on their
graves.

Maxine Kiel - Citizen Of The Year

A happy snap from before my break. Speaking at the Gippsland Women's Health event
'Stand up and be counted' on April 7th held in Meeniyan.

Having relocated both


our family and business
to Mirboo North in 1994,
I quickly got involved in
the local community. What
better way to meet people.
I am a committed and
passionate community
member, having assisted
in the formation of the
Mirboo North Country
Market of which I
continued to co-ordinate
for over 10 years. The
market continues to
attract both stallholders
and visitors from as far
away as Melbourne.
It provides a regular
stream of income from
which many community
events and facilities are
funded. Some of these
include the Business
Expo, Community Group
Listings, The Easy
Find Directory of Local
businesses, the annual
Santa in the Park Event
and the support for the
annual Arty Gras Parade
and street market.
My involvement with
the Grand Ridge Road
Committee several years
ago, has finally seen the
sealing of the road from
Warragul end to link up

transport. I am confident
that this will assist with the
increased services that
are being considered for
our Shire.
As President of MCDI
(Mirboo Country
Development Inc), we
instigated the Shop Local
campaign to supply
Shopping Bags to local
people and to work with
main street traders to
move from plastic to
recycled bags.
In the 22 years of
residence in the Shire,
I have held various
committee positions on
several community groups,
being heavily involved in
the organization of the
Australia Day festivities
as well as Arty Gras.
My assistance with
applications and receiving
grants in some of those
community groups has
made a difference to their
operations. I am an active
member of the local Op
Shop and a member of
the Mirboo North & District
Community Foundation.
I am one of two Vice
Presidents of the Mirboo
North RSL and have

The lack of records of


WW1 soldiers from our
area also struck a nerve
with me, so with the
assistance of the Mirboo
& District Historical
Society, have compiled a
complete list of those who
enlisted. This amazing
document now records
approx. 450 local lads
who had a connection to
Mirboo North and District,
of which some 80 did not
return. A full history of
these soldiers has also
been completed.
I worked with the RSL
to compile a full history
of their past committee
members and have
installed an Honour
Board of those committee
members in the RSL
Hall. I have catalogued
the memorabilia at
the Branch and also
instigated a project to
involve the whole town
whereby poppies were
either knitted, crotched
or made from felt, and
were displayed on the
magnificent tree at the
front of the RSL. The
amazing display involved
the whole community
from the Kinder, to
the Aged Care Facility,

many members of our


community contributed to
this amazing display.
My involvement with the
South Gippsland Shire
to work on a project to
build Business Resilience
in times of disaster,
has been an amazing
opportunity to both work
with the Shire and to
work with the Business
Community to assist with
succession planning if
an emergency arose. For
the Shire to be awarded
the Fire Awareness
Award for CommunityLed Prevention and
Preparedness showed
their commitment to the
Business Community. To
represent Mirboo North on
this panel will assist our
community to be prepared
for any disaster.
And now I cant wait to
contribute to the South
Gippsland Shire in the role
of Councillor (if elected)
and put all my experience
to full use throughout the
entire region.

Its coming up to Winter: The best time


of year to enjoy water sports in Morwell!!
by KATHY BURGSTAHLER
Special Guest Roving Reporter
A real hidden gem of
Gippsland is the beautiful
Hazelwood Pondage
in Morwell, which is
the cooling lake for
the nearby Hazelwood
Power Station. Located
approximately 160km
south east of Melbournes
CBD, on Yinnar Road, this
manmade lake boasts a
year round minimum water
temperature of around
22 degrees. Hazelwood
Pondage is the home of
the Latrobe Valley Yacht
Club, with various sailing
events held all year round.
It has several great boat
launching areas and is
ideal for water sports such
as boating, canoeing,
waterskiing, jet skiing,
or even just for a swim
in the middle of winter.
With numerous BBQ
areas, picnic tables, a
public toilet, play area,
& secluded little inlets
to commandeer for the
day, it is the perfect little
getaway for the family that
doesnt cost a fortune,
especially as entry is
FREE.

Fisheries Victoria has


just recently released
1600 Barramundi, of
varying sizes, into the
Pondage and is carrying
out monitoring of the stock
levels. As such, there is
NO FISHING allowed at
the Pondage (there is a
moratorium on fishing)
until their research is
completed. They are
allowing time for the fish to
grow and acclimatize, and
will be releasing reports in
due course.
Winter is my favourite
time of year to visit the
Pondage, especially on
a super cold day when
you can literally see the
steam lifting up off the
waters surface. The

bottom of the pondage


is largely mud and rock,
so its very comfortable
underfoot. I pack a picnic
lunch and escape with the
family for a day, swimming
or jet skiing, and relishing
the idea that we can
actually do this when the
weather is so cold and
the rest of my friends are
sitting at home in front of a
fireplace.
Its a hidden gem well
worth visiting as where
else can you take a
thermos full of cocoa
to whilst wearing your
bathers under your winter
clothes?? The experience
is unlike any other and
definitely one to tick off
your Bucket List.

Facts About Calcium And Grit For Birds PART 2


Calcium Grit Mix is the
perfect solution to this
dietary requirement.

The ingredients in
calcium grit mix consists of
crushed baked egg shells,
crushed limestone, shell
grit, cuttlefish bone and
charcoal are all soluble
grits.
Apart from the charcoal
these substances are
composed mainly of
different forms of calcium
carbonate (CaC03) which
contains about 40%
calcium.
They also contain
lesser quantities of
other minerals and trace
elements. For example;
egg shells are a good
source of magnesium
and what better source
of calcium and other
minerals could there be for
breeding birds (egg shell

formation) than egg shells.


Egg shells can be
fed if the grit mix is not
obtainable in a small bowl
that the birds will consume
as required. They need to
be baked in the oven to
rid them of any underlying
bacteria and then crushed
into small pieces prior to
being fed.
Birds have no teeth,
instead they have an
organ in their digestive
tract called a gizzard. This
is located between the
proventriculus (equivalent
to stomach) and the small
intestine.
It is a muscular organ
with a very tough lining.
Powerful contractions of
the gizzard grind food
into a fine pulp. This
increases the surface
area of ingested food so
the digestive juices and

enzymes can extract


nutrients from the food.

In the wild, some birds


eat small stones (grit) to
assist the action of the
gizzard in grinding food,
but not all things we
call grit can perform this
function.
Forms of grit: The
substances that bird
keepers commonly refer
to as grit can be broadly
classified into two types,
Soluble and Insoluble or
digestible and indigestible.
It is the chemical
composition and
hardness of the grit
determines whether it is
soluble or insoluble and
consequently the function
it performs when eaten by
the bird.
Calcium grit mix
is a soluble grit, its
components are relatively
soft and are able to be
physically ground into
smaller pieces by the
action of the birds gizzard.
They are then subject
to chemical breakdown
by digestive juices which
contain hydrochloric acid.
Solid grits are therefore
readily digested.
Calcium grit mix supply

birds with calcium, along


with many other dietary
elements but does not help
much in the grinding of
food within a birds gizzard.

While hard grit is not an


absolute necessity for
seed eating birds, it is
believed to be beneficial in
small amounts.

worsen their condition


by filling the crop and or
gizzard with indigestible
material to the further
detriment of their condition.

Insoluble grits are hard


and chemically stable.
They are not subject to
rapid physical or chemical
breakdown within a birds
digestive system.

Seed eating birds that


have a few grains of hard
grit in their gizzard may
extract up to 10% more
nutrients from their food
than birds that do not have
any access to hard grit.

For healthy birds as


stated earlier it is best to
feed grits in a small bowl
separate from other foods
and not spread on the
aviary floor where it can be
fouled with droppings.

Soft food eaters such as


Lorikeets and carnivores
like Magpies do not eat
hard grit, nor do they need
hard grit.

Preferably soluble and


insoluble grits should
not be mixed togehter
as when fed separately
birds can regulate their
intake of each to suit their
requirements.

Hard grit aids digestion


by helping grind seed and
other foods in a birds
gizzard. It is therefore
sometimes referred to as
digestive grit.
Beach sand, river sand,
concrete sand, crushed
quartz, crushed brick and
crushed granite are all
insoluble grit.

Feeding grit and calcium


to birds: Do not feed grit
to a sick bird, especially
hard grit. Sick birds may
consume too much and

The Midnight Train
1923, 11:50pm

I drag my dark red suit


case behind me as I make
my way to the train station
arch. I stand in line, well
the line that is barely there
as there are only three
other people.
*Oh, Im sorry I didnt
introduce myself, my
name is Matilda Grace
and this is the year of
1923.
I finally get to the front of
line. I lay down my suit
case to sand on it, I peer
over the counter with a
tinkle in my eye.
May I have a ticket for
the midnight train? I ask
politely.
I guess so, here you go
groaned the ticket master.
11:55pm
I pull my suit case over to

the bench. I lean back into


the seat, waiting patiently
for the train. A really pretty
lady is sitting next to me,
she is wearing a red coat,
black leggings and a
beret. The lady is reading
a book, I cant see any
pictures only very small
words. I leant over her
shoulder to see the page,
the lady looks up at me
and just smiles.
12:00am
The train pulls up to the
station.
All aboard! yells the
conductor.

I lean back into my seat, I


grab my handy notebook
and pencil. In my notebook
I write a description of
people I have met. I also
write in it like a diary. So I
start writing away
Today I have met the
unhappy ticket master, the
very pretty lady wearing
a beret, the very loud
conductor and a nice man
wearing a black trench
coat.
12:10am
Ticket, Miss. requests
the conductor.
Oh yes, here you go.
Are you on your own?
the conductor asks with
a concerned look on his
face.
Yes, Mum cant look after
me all the time, so I go to
stay with my Grandma in
Richmond, Melbourne.

I stare out the window and


watch the gum trees go
by as my eyelids slowly
close.
12:45am

I wake up with a big


stretch and a yawn.
Leaning my chin on my
hand, I check the time, not
long now.
3:47am
How strange, the train has
suddenly started to slow
down. The conductor yells
out as he is going past
all the carriages. I am so
sorry, but we have a slight
delay. The train engine
has broken down and we
will have to stay the night,
for the driver to fix it!"
Oh really, this is just
great. I squeaked.
Well lucky I brought a
deck of cards with me, my
favorite game to play is

patience. Im really good


at it.
10:55am

So after about 50 games


of patience, the engine
is fixed and we are on
our way. It is only about
25-35 minutes until we get
there.
11:30am
We have arrived and I
cant wait to see Grandma.
I jump out of the train with
so much excitement.
Hi Grandma! I screamed
with a huge wave.
Hi love, how was the
train ride? I was worried
sick about you, what
happened? Grandma
asked as she gave me a
kiss. I always look forward
to Grandmas kisses,
because she wears red
lipstick and it leaves a
print on my check.

Oh yes the train ride,


it was, well I started
to babble on about the
interesting yet enjoyable
train ride.

Mum!!!! Ava yelled very
loudly.
What? her Mum replied
from down stairs.
Do I really have to clean
the attic?
Yes, the sooner you do it,
the sooner its done!
*The girl looks around and
picks up a notebook from
under a box.
Can I throw this old
notebook out?....Oh, wait
never mind, I think I might
read it first.

MAY 2016

Howdy Folks!
What a wonderful May day we are enjoying. The weather is beautiful this morning.
We had a curly one this morning and thought you might like to hear about it. John
came in with an apple from his orchard; part of the apple was shiny, swollen and
spongy. Part was sunken in, as though it had sucked in it's cheeks. When opened,
the core was brown. In between the skin and flesh it was all corky and dry, which
points to a boron deficiency. Back to the books. The amount of boron one should
use gave us a tad of concern. To quote one of the many articles we read: The
suggested rates must not be exceeded. Too much boron is harmful. Back to the
drawing board.....John went home and got soil samples from two of the affected
trees. Both lots were highly alkaline, from 9.2 10 on the PH scale! It seems that
when it reads that high, several elements aren't easily available to the plant, including nitrogen, copper, and (ta-da!) boron. We also found that fluctuations in the soil
moisture can influence this problem. After a bit more reading and chatting, John
had decided to be Mr. Guinea Pig since he has almost a year to fix it naturally. He
is going to be more consistent with his watering, add lots of finely chopped horse
and cow manure mixed with straw as a mulch, with the addition of seaweed and
rock dust. Fingers crossed the PH level will come down, nutrients will unlock and
the orchard will be a happy place! Watch this space! Oh, we also thought of adding
sulphur, but decided it was cheating. Anyway, not only will a boron deficiency affect
John's apples but also a wide range of plants including many vegetables. Consult
your local nurseryman .. Well on that happy note, I'm off to plant some snow peas
and poppies!

Being that May is the last

about where to place your

that they won't enjoy quite

year.
To encourage late autumn
flowering, prune your trees
and bushes quite heavily
to allow light through and
promote further growth.
Something we also often
forget at this time of year
is that our gardening tools
are more prone to rust,
maintaining your tools will
keep them sharp and save
you replacing them later.
Pruners and clippers can
be cleaned with a cleaning
agent and lightly oiled. Any
tools with wooden handles
can be sanded and rubbed
with linseed oil to protect
the wood from rot.

But they'll probably do


something that anything

Let's say you spend
$5,500 outfitting your

pine. You could probably
have gone to Ikea and
fitted it out for under
$2,000. But when you
eventually decide to sell
your antique pine and
redecorate your bedroom,
you'll more than likely get
around $5,000 (or more)
back for your antique
furniture. If you bought
everything from Ikea, you'll
