Hi Charlie. I just took a look at the details for Deep Winter event. I had one holiday planned this year for a week, it just happens to start on the same day as the event. Will be in a house on Fraser Island instead for the event.
We moved into the house 2 months ago. Over that time, we’ve fixed up irrigation infrastructure (we now start expanding it), have the place looking better, been buying gear and planted test lots of garlic. Have poly tunnels being worked out a price on (looking for roughly an acre’s worth, two would be better), test lot of avocado trees on their way and putting in order for first of the blueberry plants.
I just think it’s going to take a lot longer than expected to get it all up and running. I’ve had to keep working for the first bit while we get things established, my work travel schedule is pretty heavy at the moment and it’s way, way too easy to spend money on things. Thankfully we’ve made some contacts in the area who’re helping us out, been an unexpected boon to keep us a little more sane.
