Last month Cyclone Debbie wreaked havoc on the Whitsunday Coast, Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef. Devastating for that area!
By the time Debbie had blustered her way down to us on the Sunshine Coast, she’d been downgraded to a tropical storm. We were very fortunate to escape with relatively minor damage from the heavy rain and strong winds.
We only lost a few trees….
…and suffered some erosion on the steep slopes and along some paths.
So it was out with the chainsaw to cut up the fallen trees. We also resorted to adding box drains and concreting some of the pathways.
The good news is that we now have full water tanks, moisture in the ground, and many plants have bounced back after the unusually cruel, hot, dry summer. The veggie beds are now back in full operation and fruit trees are flowering and covered in new growth.
The weather is beautiful and it is ideal planting time.
Mother Nature, you’re amazing!!
