Little Things You Hate

Call me Ken, whoreken
The old bugger that lives behind my block had a whinge to council about my grass being too long. none of it is taller than the scars on your shins and it's very sparse from being grazed by wombats. The plan was to keep the weed grasses slashed and let the natives grow and seed so that they'd eventually take over. Nup, not good enough. Now I've got an order to slash the lot and 14 days to do it or big fines and council will send in contractors and bill me for it.
Tell
Council you’re regenerating it. Plant a few natives and get a photo of the wombats and put in application to a land for wildlife location or whatever it’s called.

We've been doing this as part of our drought recovery in the paddocks and (though your mileage may vary) I've found that slashing/mowing more intensively doesn't hurt as much as you might think. Ive just slashed the paddocks this week and I'll do the better ground again coming into winter (gets the frost working on the perennial summer growing weed grasses and gives me time to spot spray) before going full tilt again in late Spring.

We've gone from nearly bare dirt and weed grass in early 2020 to nearly making native meadow hay this week in some parts of the place. The local kangaroo mob is loving it...

Logging/forestry.
They have opened up a coup further along from our place, has gone from 1 car a week to trucks every half hour from 4 am onwards.
Is pretty sad watching them haul out 100+ year old trees to be pulped. There are 5 different truck drivers and 5 blokes that work the machinery.. that's it. Really isn't about jobs.
Government is propping the industry up and a huge chunk of people's super is wrapped up in the success of the companies. Can't see it changing anytime soon.

Can't wait to see what happens when you drop one of your new bikes.
