Re: Finally... the one stop shop (or should I say forum)

Hey! Don't forget about the gorgeous, gregarious goat!!!! :D :D Yes mother nature always finds a way :roll: I have heard of several goat breeders who have not removed a buck kid from its mother in time and have ended up with a little accident! Pretty amazing considering the size difference between t...

Re: Started

My goats have had a bit of rain scald this year with the amount of humid weather we have had and our alpacas get it also. We use a sulphur based cream called Nu-stock. Works great!

Re: Leaking

We have been very lucky! The river has only come up to our neighbours place two doors down. All our neighbours on the river side of the road are cut off and stuck - a couple of them are isolated on little islands and use dinghies to get back and forth. Some of the neighbours at the back have parked ...

Re: Breeding fish

Yum that sounds lovely! I thought of stocking our dam as well once we have some spare cash to buy fingerlings. But our dam flooded last week after all the rain we had up here in CQ. My daughter found a heap of fish washed up on the grass about 10-15cms long. Think I am going to have to throw in a li...

I'd never heard of pickled beans before. Will give them a try :D Thanks for that recipe Glyn - looks very yummy and unusual! I would never have considered a bean and peach combo before :D

Drowning in Beans

I am currently drowning in snake beans. I don't own a pressure cooker - are there any ways I can preserve them besides freezing? We are expecting a bad weather season so I don't want to rely on electricity for storage?? Recipes or tips appreciated :D

Storing Flour

Wasn't sure where to look within the forum to see if any one had mentioned this topic before so sorry if I'm repeating. I read somewhere a while ago about storing flour etc in bulk and it mentioned freezing flour, rice etc to kill any pests that may be in the product prior to storing. But it didn't ...

Re: Australia is vulnerable to climate change

I agree with that Vicki - we already are doing it to the native tribes in South America while clearing rainforest! And I am sure there are many other examples :(

Re: Australia is vulnerable to climate change

Scary! Sometimes you wonder when you watch those disaster movies they make in Hollywood that some of them aren't that far off the mark! The Day After Tomorrow springs to mind :(
