You do get some root penetration into the shale but I doubt there is much capacity for water storage during the summer.
Yes it does dry out and burn quickly.
Here’s a pic from the heatwave last summer,couple of hundred metres along the bank.
Being grazed off by sheep doesn’t help however once the moisture has gone,it’s gone as you well know.
err, you probably don't want to swap any moisture - looks like you might need all you can get
I'd eat that
Just taken this pic while passing.
Some patches still haven’t recovered from being burnt.
But having a farm quarry with your own supply of hardcore is useful.
Very dry here for the time of year, it almost managed to drizzle this afternoon but gave up. Our last rain was 5mm on Christmas Eve.
We are still showing around 20mm SMD here so no effective groundwater recharge yet this winter.
I would ask the phone number but I'm not allowed away again until Mel has had her (very overdue) holiday. It might take a while to haul it home as well.
Bought 4 British blue in calf heifers today of a good mate.
Had a whoopsie on the bad corner on way back home to farm with the full trailer. Dragged me backwards back down lane and knocked a fair hole in the wall on the right.
It is an ass off a corner to be fair. Fairly steep 90 degree left turn. The trailers always hang on the little kink in the road.
As Roy says it’s never easy.
This is what we have to look forward too plus it was over 40 yesterday as well
Boy, can't wait for Tuesday/ Wednesday
Now that I would enjoy - with a little Balsamic Drizzle, Sesame Seeds, and some Crispy Fried Onions (Crunchy Stage) scattered on the top - Oh, and a Nice Cool Drink...., and swap the feta for a strong stilton..
Gonna leave the cows and go to this http://soilhealthu.net/
That is the worst looking breakfast ever. What is it, a salad?!
I understand it's hot there and it's hard to eat heavy meals when it's hot, but breakfast is supposed to be hearty, not fresh from the garden!
When i started working in the heat in Australia, i ate just like i did at home, steak and chips mincce and tatties etc, then my insides just seized up.
I had to switch to a fruit diet , 3 times a day, then eventually the dam broke!
I never had an issue. Ate pretty much all the same stuff as here. Spaghetti, chicken, rice, potatoes, steak....
During the day when it was really hot I’d snack on yogurt most of the time. Couldn’t afford the fruit as Yasi had wiped it all out

The good, old 12 page travel challenge !!!
Next year's challenge will be to make my own!!!
Avocado, poached egg, grilled haloumi, kale, mushrooms, chorizo & brown rice. Packs a big taste punch & believe me, it's very hearty, a real keep you going all day meal ( my next meal was about 10 hrs later )
Is halloumi the cheese that it like salty rubber?
