WATER CRISIS- HELP!
Does anyone know where I can get a capacitor for a bore ??? 230volt 106 microfarrad on a Sunday of a long weekend. It appears that this mornings power outage has resulted in terminating our bore which means we cannot fill the water tank that is our house supply. Not to mention the vege garden has started to frazzle :sad2: Urgent attention required, nobody is wanting to answer their mobile phones today.

Nup and nup. Despite the fact that the Total Eden website shows a shop window stating Open 7 days, no one is answering their phones. Grrr
The garden is shrivelling as the temperature rises and we need to save the tank water cause we don't know when we can fill it again. By the pool do you mean the big outdoor bath ? hehe:bash:

Oops! Did a Joel today and went shopping and bought things.
I used to have a rule that I had to say to myself "Only buy what you are going to plant today".
It kind of stops me getting carried away, I forgot about it at Bunnings today.
I have noticed my Wesfarmers shares on the rise lately. :joy:

Doh! Gees, that was quick, Joel did the shopping today and yes, the sales docket will make your shares rise. I blame Mitch, he requested toilet brushes X 2. Such a clean freak, and I mean toilet brushes last years. :sad2: I just don't understand!

Glad you made it home safely Paul and Theresa, nice to catch up with you both, Apologies for the garden not being up to scratch, you just got to see the befores, next time will be the after the garden renovation- tour. :thumb: Aaah it is always a work in progress.

I wish I had gardenned but alas I have been decluttering. Junk and crap accumulates around here and I am on a mission to rid my life of excess stuff that no longer serves its purpose. If anyone else needs help there is a great internet site that can inspire home organisation.

By next week I shall have more time to enjoy my day off. But I did get some mowing and watering done, so there is a little garden progress. Not as much as you though Joel!

Todays weather suits gardening to a tee. This time of year, the end of our long, hot, dry summer it is time to clean up after the gum trees. The weekly tidy up generally constitutes blowing the leaves off the driveway onto the garden but after 4 months it is deep with dry leaves, so time to rake and remove. Not to mention getting the 30ft branch off the driveway that dropped yesterday due to hot weather. We grow our own firewood here and what does not get burnt in our slow combustion fire makes a great bonfire in a cleared area of the property. Not bad when only 15 minutes from the Perth city centre.

What do you do with all the gum leaves, Faye? Burn or put through the mulcher or ?. They don't decompose quickly.

After cursing the reched things and moving 10 wheel barrow loads they are on the burn off pile.
If I can mow them while they are on the gardens they break down easier and I just op them up with mulch. Some of the gardens don't allow me to get a mower between the shrubs and trees while other areas do. 'Tis nice and neat out there now but my neck hurts.

What's to stop the burn off pile blwoing all over the place before you're allowed to burn again ?

Can't burn off till the end of May (I think) in Mundaring

Our burn off piles are pretty weighty with branches, timber, palm fronds and now the leaves.
We have banksia woodland on the other side, probably about 1 acre which is still our property, and a firebreak cleared around it. The leaves don't blow anywhere. We will request a burning permit when we get our first rains so the area is not so tinder dry. Then out come the deck camp chairs and our friends the fire buggers with their wines and marshmallows. Jaymie and Axl know what that is like. Nothing like it when we are less than 2km from built up suburbs and it is like living in the country. Aah can't wait!
