Overnight we have had an spectacular electrical storm-which provided some good soaking rain. It moistened the soil enough for me to harvest the remaining parsnips-and a couple of cheeky potatoes which had sprung up!
I also harvested another 1.5kg of strawberries- I think I may use this batch to try some microwave strawberry jam.
Telstra still doesn't have our telephone services up and running in the area-some businesses have managed to get their EFTPOS up and running and there are also some ATMs working.
Ah well......abck to the Dark Ages!
