@papershellfarm Surahn uses beeswax from their own hives to coat the staves of this basket press.

A few weeks ago I visited @papershellfarm in Willunga where Jess and Surahn are working hard to reinvigorate an old almond orchard. In the early 1900s Willunga was one of the leading producers of almonds in Australia. Traditional almond production is very hard on the land - machinery, pesticides, fungacides, monoculture takes a very heavy toll on the soil and surrounding environment.
Through diverse plantings of veggies, flowers, natives, eliminating chemical use and a great respect and understanding of the importance of biodiversity  @papershellfarm are creating a precious oasis of healthy land of which their bees both native and European play an essential role. Good on you two! .

Had a great chat with Ben @paxtonwines yesterday regarding bees and their essential role in their biodynamic vineyards. It was fantastic to hear someone speak so passionately about treating the whole ecosystem with the respect it deserves.

One of these is an embarrassing mess of thicket that needs a good tidy up. 
The other is a pile of branches and sticks. 
Enjoyed some work across town today. :-) .

When you stop at your Mum’s place while on the mow during a light rain shower, and no one is home, and the Digestive Biscuits aren’t opened, so you only have Marie biscuits. Also, there are no Aldi Caramel wafers in the snack cupboard. Think this is probably a customer I can let go by the looks of it. ;-)

Tacked and racked. Really pushing hard to have this on the road by Monday. It’ll be working for a few days this week then it’s back off the road for sanding and painting. It’s a weird thing because there is so much work that will be unseen outside the trailer. But that principle is something I carry with me in my business. It’s not what you do when you’re observed, it’s what you do when no one is looking that build integrity. .

One thing I came to realise very early on in business is that stuff you do that, while not you’re core service, still contributes to your business. I struggled with that at first. You know how when you go to work in a day job for a company, they do the marketing, they go out and get business, they provide you with a van or Ute, they provide the pens, the paper and the process of doing business. 
I am rebuilding my trailer based on what I’ve learned over the last couple of years. If I worked for a company, they’d tell me what I need, provide what I need and probably not take much away from me telling them what I think about what I need. 
That’s why I love working for myself, with my name on my logo. Because it’s everything from the pen in my pocket to the trailer on my Ute, to the shirt on my back to the effort I put in, to never losing sight of the job until it’s done. 
Each day, no matter what work is being done,  there are these two rigs. My dogs. I reckon dogs keep us level. They keep going all just to make us happy. If I am half as committed to my customers are these two are to me and my wife, I reckon IPH will be here for a long time to come.  You can find meaning in the simplest things if you look hard enough. .

Friday Jamz 4 - Song that inspire a lawn guy 
Band: Faith No More
Song: Caffeine 
Album: Angel Dust (1992)
I could write for days about this album. And probably this song. When MTV pinup boys turn into edgy alternative crossover funk rock metal, you’re either going to love it or hate it. Music changed between Faith No More’s ‘The Real Thing’ album. That slick rock had all but been razed by full tilt alternative sounds. This album, and this song in particular, is a band breaking the shackles and throwing it all out there. I still love this band and this album. I’ve seen them three times. They’ve aged well. This record takes me back to my high school days like few other albums can. I don’t live in the past, but I can sure appreciate the things that got me to the present. If music was was of those things, then this album and band were a big part of ride through life. 
Link is in the bio to a live version of Caffeine. Brilliant back in the day, brilliant now. :-)

Finally had some rain. Lawns are popping everywhere. Where I live it is predominantly Kikuyu lawns. Water is expensive here so watering is often a budgetary decision rather than a lawn quality decision. 
Either way, my customers get my best effort and I do my best every time. .

Friday Jamz 3 - Music that inspires a lawn guy 
Band: The Pixies
Song: Break My Body 
Album: Surfer Rosa (1988)
Joey Santiago’s guitar on this song is amazing. It’s abrasive and right at the front, but it surrounds all the vocal harmonies and verses. The second stanza sounds like it was a captured in one take, one time. It’s as raw as music gets and for that reason it’s a great track on a great album. Link is in the bio.
