Gardening

The garden is coming along nicely. Each time I go to the island I take a few bales of sugar cane mulch to spread on the trenches. Here is the jeep fully loaded. It’s days like this that I miss the old troop carrier.

The pole on the roof rack is an aluminium lifting boom from a Nordhaven yacht. I bought it from a boatyard for the bargain price of $50. It has a 24v winch and gerhaur stainless pulley. I’m considering using it on the big truck or in my workshop to lift items.

I’m still spreading gravel around the yard and on the driveways. The Lilly Pilly trees are growing quickly and I’ve already given them a trim to promote some lower growth. Hopefully by next Christmas they will begin to form a hedge and hide the ugly fencing.
