It’s autumn on the farm and the autumn “break” rains have finally come.
The summer rains we had were very challenging for several reasons but they always suit something and on the morning walk today good evidence of that was seen.
On the farm there are several areas dedicated to preserving remnant vegetation and restoring some diversity to the under and upper stories. These areas are fenced off from the livestock (certain eucalyptus varieties are very tasty!)
And yet, even in the grazed paddocks there is regeneration of various species of mid- to upper- story plants like acacias and eucalyptus.
