Well just a flying visit as we have been flat out with our move to Newlands Arm. A freezing winter's day - particularly in the morning when the wind was quite strong but as the day progressed it did improve. Looking forward to having a warm comfortable home up there and sitting inside watching the rain fall.

We had to go up to plant some nut tree that we have bought. Two chestnuts; Wandiligong Wonder, a walnut; Franquette and a hazelnut; Cosford. The trees are grafted and so are failry expensive. $49.95 for the chestnuts and $74.95 for the walnut and will take at least 4 years before bearing nuts. We are looking on it as an investment. We have planted them in the south west corner on the boundary with Howard. The soil is quite deep there and they should go well if we can keep the water up to them until they are established. The climate should suit. Dargo is well know locally for their walnuts and they are just over the ridge.

Dropped in and saw Paul; Howard's son who is looking after their place whilst Howard and Christine are overseas. The tractor is in their shed so I wanted to make sure it was OK. Started fine and let it run for 5 or so minutes whilst I raided their mardarin tree. Never really thought that citris would go well up there but they certainly do.
