not that I can find. Bloody Charlie, grrr, he should have booked marked at
They might still be up but I long ago deleted the bookmark.
If you can find a discussion in this or rec.gardens.edible from last summer
I will have posted a link to the website. Can't find the bastard myself
doing a google search however.

don't drag me into this debate, I'm just an innocent bystander. I will
provide my expertise if someone answers my post about community gardens
My experiments with waste water was limited to our summer drought. 4 +
months of fa water so I used the water from the washing machine on to
lawn by way of a surge tank (old rubbish bin) and scavanged washing
pipe joined together with a gravity fall off the back deck. The system
worked well. I was initially worried about salt build up from the
powders. I brought some non-phosphorous powder but I also used some
phosphorous powder as well. Upon reflection I was not too worried about
levels in the powder. My problem was a long drought by local standards.
simply wanted to try and nurse the lawn through. 2-3 loads of washing
machine water a week was not enough to keep the lawn green but it did
mitigate some of the effects of the long drought. We have heaps of rain
winter so salts in the soil will be washed through by constant rainfall.
Since mid april we have had roughly 3-4 inchs I guess. That is enought
kick start growth and rains will continue through the winter. As a stop
measure it worked okish. year round however the salts in the washing
would worry me.
Now, if someone wants to answer my Sydney query:
Does nayone living in Syndey know of any community/permaculture/organic
gardens within the sydney city?
A woman from NZ is over in your city sometime shortly and is interested
visiting such gardens to see how it is done.
Any contacts or websites is appreciated

um, yeah maybe. Might be that post. Do you have its name? Somewhere along
the way I put some pictures on the net and added a link to a post. The
photos showed my fabulous $10 home made lawn watering system. Maybe it is
Though don't think I actually know where I have posted it, but am pretending
not to simply because Charlie gave me some duff advice about making cider. I
honestly do not know where the post is.
and you burned the pics?
The thread was called "Grey laundry water for garden watering?".
You'll have to excuse Charlie, he's still a Joey (Oops, I'm not in Oz
any more). He hasn't even turned 60 yet.
What happened? Last I remember, you had a white film growin' on the
surface of the cider, which you were going to remove, and then add some
more SO2. If I take take your meaning, it was down the gurler. What
Yeast, sugar, and oxygen are an unstable mix. My advice, if you want
advice, is to sterilize all clean equipment with chlorinated water (just
so you can smell it in the water) for twenty minutes, rinse clean. There
is no way to guestimate SO2 levels. You either need to get a set-up for
the Ripper method for free SO2 or keep cider in the fridge (4C). A small
cylinder of argon would be helpful also, or they have this gas in a can
that your supposed to squirt into partial bottles of wine to drive off
the O2 (waste of money for this purpose, if you ask me).
So it's mid fall for you. How was gardening this year? Rain?
Where are you? North Island or South Island?
All the best,
"For the first time in the history of the world, every human being
groan, fn google is failing to bring up this thread, fn google ^&(()U****&&^
can you please post a link to where you recovered it Billy?
Damned Charlie, I am wasting a lot of time on his behalf. He'd better damned
appreciate it, even if the end result is me showing how clever I am.
As for your questions, yes, the white film has gone. I cleaned it out with a
paper towel and sulphited the brew. That seems to have done the trick. Nowt
went down the gurgler, not yet anyway. Before I go to any greater expense or
knowledge harvesting on cider, I will see if the results warrant it. Might
be a 1 season flirtation depending how it tastes. Had a dry March & April
here, lots of sunshine, very nice. Only just packed away my $10 grey water
recycling unit actually. Just a change the last few days with more unsettled
weather and rain. Garden is starting to grow again though will slow down
soon with the colder weather coming in. North Island.
As for Charlies question about the panel beater. Hmmmm. Got rear ended about
6 weeks ago. My work insurance refused to cover claim as it was under
escess, suggested I go and claim off third party. Third parties insurance
told me to goback to my company and get the 2 insurers top settle issues. My
claim dissappeared into some black hole, am attempting to retrieve it.
Having worked in insurance in previous job (dead boring, if you want to have
a career in insurance, choose a career elsewhere instead) I know how the
system works. My work insurer is out of line. Lazy bastards.
phew, finally found the post with the link. Thanks for the start Billy. It
wasn't actually that post however I went through all of my google posts for
2007 and 2008 and finally found it. Having reread a number of the posts,
man, I write some shite, um er, I mean, provide valuable and plentiful
Now, for the grumbles. Bloody Farm1, wrong newsgroup. Sent me off on a wild
goose chase. I actually posted on aus.gardens. Grrrrr. Still, bright side
was it let me relive all the, aheam, valuable advice I have handed out to
people. Heres the post.
Charlie, now for your reward. The link I provided in the post actually works
and the pictures are still up on photobucket, 15 months after I posted them.
Amazing. Follow this link and marvel at my cheapness, er, I mean
resourcefulness and magnificence.
ps after all this effrot charlie, I expect some decent advice about cider
Fair suck of the saveloy rob! I never SAID which group you'd posted it in, I
merely remembered being impressed with your do it yourself job and
remembered that it was you who'd posted.
You should feel flattered that I bothered to remember your name, your post
and which country you lived in. That's more than I do for most ngs posters
And I still think it looks reasonable for the outlay.
gees wayne, you'd need to be a couple short of a crate not to know what that
means Charlie. Not wanting to put you crook or anything, but are you playing
silly buggers or just being a wanker?
fair go, just pissing around charlie, dinkum. Not trying to brass you off so
don't pack a sad about it ok.
I thought everyone naturally memorised everything I wrote. I thought I give
fair dinkum bottler advice. Strewth, maybe you are right though. I blame
Charlie mostly, trying to bludge some knowledge off my endeavours started
the whole hooha. The silly old chook. That said, hes not a bad joker eh
Farml, a real dag. Gees Wayne, this terminology will have Charlie going
faster than an HQ down to the pub for a crate or a 10 years old down to the
dairy for a packet of lollies. He is still going on about my prang, a right
grouse one that it was. Oh well, she'll be right. Hooray.
Yeah, yeah, yeah ya' got me goin' flat tack for meanings, but it was a
beaut, a piece-of-piss. Ta.
.......and once again old charlie gets the blame and treated as if he
couldn't see the road to the dunny if it had red flags on it.
Here I am, all sorts of impressed with your nifty doodackie, and quite
properly appreciative of your hard graft in finding the pics, cracking
open a vintage cider and toasting you from afar......and I get treated
as if I'm a sammy short of a picnic, by a cheap cheeky bloke who has a
cat door in his window, for chrissakes!
BTW....check out hooha here:
are you not getting enough hows your father or something? I know it can be
hard yakka eh, especially for a wowser like you.
on the matter of kiwi-isms. We have some lollies across here called
'eskimos' that are marshmellow type little eskimo figures. A visiting
canadian has been in the news this week going crook about how insulting to
Inuit the name is. We also have 'eskimo pies', an ice cream bloc covered in
chocolate. Glad she didn't have a gawk at them before she went.
Enough root? Hell man, I'm old enough the testeronie levels have
subsided a bit and randiness ain't the "problem" it used to be, and
that can be a relief! Wowser?, give me an effin' break.
gawd, what a cheeky joker you are! I give already! Eff me, a night
at pub with the lot of ya'll would be a harrowing experience for sure.
And a cherished event, no doubt.
Heh heh. Lots of that going round. Been a big issue over the last
years here about names for school mascots, sports teams and such.
It's a fair point, though.
