Were getting a bit desperate here. There's nothing wrong with a young to middle aged goat hanging in the gauze clad meat house, just forget the right name. I have had several meals from goats, young veal and lamb property killed. When a visitor was coming for lunch on Sunday we would kill a rooster in the morning. No refrigeration or power just a meat safe for keeping meat over night.
The main meal for working farmers was bread and trekle or Golden Syrup. Dress never varied much just a pair of grey or fawn work pants and a grey flannel shirt. Oh! forgot the braces and belt with a pocket knife pouch and heavy work boots. The folding Rogers knife was used for everything from wethering sheep to picking teeth. I have met some great characters in my early years. The work gun was a 22 pea rifle ready in the corner of the back door, used by everyone from the 8 year old to grandmother. Every now and again while having dinner a shot would be heard and everyone knew it was just one of the local lads on our dam shooting a duck for dinner.. How the people have changed.

Maree, I have a friend in Glenorie who buys 2 lambs on the hoof from a farmer friend regularly. When back from his country gaunt he would cut up the skinned and gutted sheep in his kitchen. His house looks like a temple with 20' colums supporting a front awning to drive under.
His kitchen is Tassie Oak from top of marbled benches to the 10' ceiling.
There is a matching serving bench with granite top covered with a scrubbed piece of 19mm plywood on top. This is where the lambs are cut up, got the picture. Everything is removed, scrubbed down and put away for the next use. I eat very little meat myself these days.

Sounds like a great kitchen Ozeboy, Tassie oak and granite , wouldn't i love a kitchen like that , minus the sheppies of course lol . Coming from the city i think i'm lucky to have seen a bit of farm life when i visit my sister on her farm , which is a big grain farm in country Vic , not so many cows and sheep now . They love the life , full of its highs and lows .....

Well that's probably enough of the good old times?

A subject concerning roses is the interesting but horrific times during the French Revolution. The rose 'Mademoiselle de Sombreuil' was found as a seedling under a Gigantesque rose by Monsieur Robert of Biarritz France. He was so taken with her devotion to save her father from the guillotine he named this exquisite white blooming seedling after her.
Since then the rose sold under that name may well be incorrect and another rose 'Carlsrhue Maria Bruhn' has been put forward as the correct rose. There is so much history associated with old Heritage Roses. I can see the passion collectors have for these old timers.

Last year there were quite a few requests for this rose so have propagated quite a few for anyone interested. They would be available one year two years from now. I have seen a mature plant of CMB in a pot around 6' tall with very healthy leaves and nice white blooms.

I say you can never have enough white; do you have many other OGRs and specifically Tuscany Superb?

I thought this thread might encourage the newer, non-posting members to say something, I was wrong.

I have a question Smile

Aphids and other bugs. I am sure this has been asked many times, but I have an infestation here in QLD. What do people find is best to use in humid conditions, and how often should the roses be sprayed etc? I have so many that I am finding it SO difficult to get rid of these critters.

And weirdly, this year, my bare rooted roses in pots are growing much better than the ones in the garden. Is there a reason for this? Besides soil?

Thanks Very Happy

Quickest and cheapest way to start with , is to hit them with a jet of water....that will clear all your bushes of them straight away......check in two days time for the returners, and you will have them......second cheapest that you can use as a follow up is use soapy water in a sprayer(pumped or motorised)........by this time some will see the light and move on, but in 3-4 days after the soapy spray , the die hards will be looking for a cheap meal, so make the suckers regret their decision and hit them with "malathon"....you should be able to control them after that quiet easily

Thanke Neptune, the water never seems to work with some of the other bugs. Some are white, some are green and some are brown.

Have tried all that and they are never gone for more than a week. I have tried a solution that is supposed to seep into the plant system to kill them continuously (yesterday) I wonder how often I need to do this or if it has worked for anyone else. It's driving me crazy!

I,ve never had to deal with plagues of aphids , so my thoughts are general for the smaller invasion of these critters. You could try those Confidor pills(Bunnings) which are placed into the ground and the plants draw up the chemicals into there canes

Oh I saw those, they were a bit expensive, but I guess in the long run they would be worth it. I wonder if anyone has had any luck with them. I have about 60 roses so it might cost a bit :/

I agree with you on the pricing of those pills and probably why I decided to persist with the spraying

after the first spray, I wait a couple of days , then spray again. That should knock them flat. Then I wait about a week and check the bushes again, and then spot spray where I see them

Thank you Smile Hoping the new spray I just used will give me a couple of weeks at least. If not, I am not trying those tablets (same sort of thing)

RosyTeesh, with 60 roses infested, youíll probably shake your head at my way of dealing with aphids: I squash them, that way Iím sure theyíre gone for good after the first time of dealing with them. But I only ever had one or two roses affected, so it didnít take very long.

I do that too hahahahaha! Well with my potted ones anyway.

Also I want to ask you all how your roses do in pots? Mine are absolutely thriving! About 3 times more than the garden ones that are in premium soil!

My potted roses seem to do just as well as those in the ground. They all have their own habits of course, with some having taken off and producing leaves immediately, but then slowing down and not showing any buds, but the slower once to take, once taken, producing many buds quickly after that, etc.
My first rose to bloom, Tamora, is in a pot and the second, Gertrude Jekyll, is in the ground and my roses in bloom at the moment donít show a preference for either.
I think itís the roseís habit, rather than how itís planted that determines how fast it develops. Although Iíd imagine over time, roses in the ground will do better overall, because they can develop a better root system, specifically deeper roots that will anchor them to help reach their full potential. Also, in pots, roses are more dependent on an ongoing supply of added nutrients or boosters of some sort.
