Eddy saves the fuel to put in the cars and just uses old fashioned wood, mmm petrol would be fun though. Grass trees are fun to burn.

the most effective one was the giant bamboo and yes it was fairly green....advisable to wear full protective gear and don't stand too close!

I'll be sure to put some bamboo on the next bonfire, and not stand too close with the marshmallows.
When I got out of the car the other day, I looked up at the house and thought to myself " I like the look of that" and proceeded to take photos to mark what it looked like after removing the bulk of the gum leaves. It is one way to look back without going through 10 000 other photos.

You're right. It's looking great, Faye. How much land do you have?

She has too much land...... :) I can say that while she's not here...

I think it's just under 5 acres.
