Great Advance

I bought BTB on Saturday, and have read it (quickly) since. I thought that I would post up my first impressions. BTB is an excellent supplement/expansion of/complement to BFTB. Peter goes into a lot more detail regarding specifics, and the reader can develop an even more authorative understanding of...

Spring 08 Update

Well, 2 years since I stopped spraying (except for serrated tussock). So how is this spring shaping up? Amazingly (to me) we have very few PC (pattersons curse) this year.

I would very much like to come and visit one of Peter's projects. All I need to know is which day and time, and I will drive up from Sydney, providing I don't have other commitments on that day.

'Controlling' Weeds

I have read Back from the Brink (twice) and given another three copies to friends who have an interest in the land. I am also in touch with several other people with an interest who have read the book. Also, our local LandCare group is showing great interest (though the Land Care rep who comes to th...
