Carbon sequestration and biogas

Thu, 02/28/2013 - 07:12 — Compost Stu

The rain has set in and the orchard gully is flowing merrily through unmown Kikuyu, which sieves and filters the road runoff until its clean and clear. The wet season is well and truly upon us, along with some of the compromises many of us choose to bring us closer to nature. My toilet paper is slightly damp, making things quite tricky toward the end……one must apply just the right amount of pressure!! I normally incinerate my used TP and add the ash to the loo below, but today all I can manage is a smoldering wad of paper.



Thailand and sex

Thu, 02/28/2013 - 07:09 — Compost Stu

The sun rises through an oppressing layer of thick brown haze, nearly obscuring the furthest phallic towers that litter the Bangkok city scape. A solitary bird somewhere in the near distance produces a cry that could be interpreted as a sad indictment on bio-diversity in this hot, dirty city. Bangkok awakens, canvas covers removed to reveal the street vendors workplaces, traffic showing early signs of entropy, the mornings warmish sewage pulsing beneath the iron clad sewers.



LPED, drought proof your garden

The Currawongs are having a council in the nearby Silky Oak. It must be a serious issue because the politics are raucous. They dive and chase each other, perhaps delivering their own form of justice, or are they just finding out who has the biggest beak….? The dry spring weather is wilting the weeds and keeping the lawn nicely stunted, drying up my leaky dams and reminding me of the last drought. My vegetable patch, however, is flourishing. Treated grey water irrigates about 200m2 of beautiful red soil, simply by having a shower or doing a load of washing.



Peak Phosphorus

My chooks did a weird thing this morning. As I sat and went through my morning routine on the loo, two chooks came over and prostrated themselves at the foot of the stairs to the loo. They looked up at me as if to say, here I am, come and get it!!! They were sort of one wing out, head down and bum up, a very enticing pose for a rooster perhaps. I laughed and the dog came over and scared them off, but I think I better get them a rooster before they mate with a rampant bush turkey or something even weirder.



Discernment

Sunshine warms my shoulder through the diaphanous wall to the east. The sleeping goddess (Sphinx and Blue Knob) is smiling, warmth exudes from her bosom. I breath it all in and wonder how my perception filters this experience. Am I looking through rose coloured glasses? As an eternal optimist, can I not see the writing on the wall, or do I choose not to read it, (is it really there at all)? Often times I am confronted with information that purports to conspiracy, global evil, chemtrails, the illuminati etc etc.
