Lidsay's blitz was held on Saturday 20th October, 10 am – 4 pm
Lindsay has a larger property at Grenville with the potential to be very productive.
Pat's report - (from FB)
The weather today was perfect for the monthly blitz! Numbers were a little down, probably due to the wonderful weather but another gutsy effort by all who could make it. Lindsay now has a water tank cleared of blackberries and weeds and planted up with some different varieties of passion fruit and rhododendrons. Unusual combo but will look stunning in the future. A '4 hour long' swale was incorporated to assist drainage around the orchard with the help of a rotary hoe and a large cold frame was constructed for seed raising, so quite a bit was achieved. Many thanks to all who attended and made this another successful day.
Jobs on the day included:
- Constructing a seepage garden
- Making beds around the rainwater tanks and planting climbers like passionfruit
- Digging a swale to improve drainage in the orchard (photo below)
