Looking for Christmas Presents? Why not give a trio of Homis?
The standard is an all purpose favourite, the scraper work well on paths and for small weeds and the mini is light, comfortable option for small spaces and pots.
Electranets are all back in stock
Currently there are plenty masterfence, starternets and garden nets available - good news because they are very popular.
We all stand on the shoulders of the contrarians who have inspired us, George Henderson, Scott Nearing, Eliot Coleman, Gene Logsdon and of course Joel Salatin. These contrarians have made their own stories and they have encouraged us who follow in their footsteps and make our own stories.
One of the great things about being contrarian farmers is the joy of working on your own land in your own way and not being bound by any prescriptive rules.
One of the best example of a non prescriptive farmer we know is Joel Salatin. He and his family work their farm their way and are happy to lead the way for more and more people to adopt some of their well proven system but always fitting them to their own land and their own circumstances. The Polyface Way is not a dogma but a wonderful set of guide lines.

Electric Net Fencing
The long awaited shipment of electic mesh fencing has finally arrived. We will be able to fill all current back orders but we have no extra Starternets. There are more ordered so if you are happy to wait place an order on line and that will guarantee delivery in a few months.
At this stage we do have plenty of Masterfence and a few Garden Nets
Kencove have guaranteed that they will replace any faulty feet/stepins free of charge to our customers.Kencove assure us that they have solved all the feet/stepin problems. Please contact us if you have had problems with feet on older nets.
ENERGISERS please note that we DON"T sell them. However we do have a lot of experience with them and we do know what works and in some cases what really DOESN'T work.
We really like helping our customers to make informed and cost effective decisions and the great range of energisers on the market makes it very confusing.
Like almost all electronic gear you get what you pay for and if it's cheap it's unlikely to work well, even in the short term.
Our first recommendation is that you look at an energiser company that has a good web site with a full set of specifications which gives you information which will help you to match the energiser to the numbers of nets you will be using.
Things like the peak joule output, size of battery and solar panel you will need to turn your mesh fence into a pain filled barriers that will keep stock in and predators out. An energiser which will run your fence at high voltage but low amps, painful but not lethal.
Work Experience Opportunities
Terry Evans from Vin Rowe showed us the full range of walking 2-wheel tractors and the various implements that can be attached at a well attended and successful workshop in Victoria.
Our 2-wheel walkbehind tractor is always in use and it looks like this summer we will have a little bed former worked out to go behind the reciprocating spader. The next 'must have' is a flail mower - what a machine!
We have always been testing the limit of Australia Post's parcel service with our large items. We now use a TollIPEC for over sized items.

Planting Calendar for Temperate Australia
Shortening days and cooling nights herald the end of summer. We are now turning our thoughts to planting next years crop of garlic. We are printing out new garden layout charts and next seasons planting calendar as well as collecting together seed catalogues and doing a stocktake of all the seed we have in hand.
So that you can get on with planning next years kitchen garden here is the planting calendar that we have developed at Allsun Farm. It was originally in the form of a wall calendar but over the years we have realised that printing it out on monthly cards which can be put in your pocket it a better idea.
We make notes on the cards and print a new set out every year so the cards double as both a diary and a calendar.
