Tomorrow, 20th February, promises to be hot again. Not a surprise for February. I will be down at the grove again, running down the Forrest Highway, admiring the miniature ponies and camels enroute, and will hopefully get the following jobs done. 1.Finish painting and assembling a new brood box for the bees, 2Water the little replanted olives which replaced the trees burned in last years bush fire, 3.Water the native plants the City of Mandurah donated last year, 4. Clean out the scale from the irrigation valves and if it isn't too beastly hot, get out the chipper and chip the prunings from the other day. We are 'skirting' the Koroneiki in readiness for mechanical harvesting this season - we haven't done it before.
