Well, we have now removed most of the tree. Only the root ball and a few branches remain.

A few minor repairs will be needed as once all the clutter was cleared it became obvious that some slight damage was caused.

Veggie patch damaged
The root ball actually pushed the chook palace slightly sideways.
So despite the above, we got away with limited damage. I don't think we will be trying to push the chook palace back into place. It weighs heaps! Added to all of this, our computer decided to do a dummy spit. Windows very kindly said it would save all my programs - it did, in name only. Needless to say I have spent my Sunday trying to reinstall my preferred browser, security etc etc. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!! Damn technology, good when it works................................

Meanwhile, Gertrude, our oldest chook was found dead this morning. Old age finally got her. She had a great retirement. I think it is time to get some more layers. Our two remaining girls seem to lay eggs when they are in the mood, which is not for days sometimes. Maybe it has something to do with constantly being barked at??


  1. Ahh, sorry to hear about Gertrude, but I'm sure she had a happy life. Thanks goodness the fallen tree didn't do too much damage. Computers... just got ours fixed, I realise how completely dependent I am on the internet when I can't access it for a while! xxx

  2. Such a huge tree to clear. I guess some good came from it, your neighbour benefits from the wood for next Winter :-)

  3. Wow that's some gum tree ! Lucky escape !
