November is the last month of spring and you can tell that Summer is approaching. Its getting hot and humid and we've had regular storms, including hail. In the space of four weeks the grass has gone from crunchy brown to bright green. The cows seem very happy. And our dam at Eight Acres is full again.

Its been my first full month of weekdays in Brisbane. So far I think we are going ok, Pete seems to have kept the garden going and all the animals happy, and we've both had lots of real food to eat.

Actually, I don't think there's much to tell you. The chickens are laying (and I've found a very lucrative market for the eggs in Brisbane), we are milking Bella once a week, Nancy is growing, Molly's udder is shrinking, Monty is weaned and in the neighbour's paddock with Benny and Romeo, the cows at Cheslyn Rise have had 11 calves between the 25 of them, we still have six guinea fowl, and I think the dogs are enjoying more time with their mate Pete. And most exciting of all, my article for Grass Roots was published in the Dec/Jan edition.

I wrote about the garden here
(Pete's done a great job looking after it).

And here's an interesting blog about permaculture and cycling

And finally, a free doco about the relationship between food and health.
How was your November? What are you planning for December?
