Koramba Cotton

We’ve seperated…for a short time:

  • by

Now don’t jump to the wrong conclusion – Chris and I are living apart for the next three to four weeks because it’s harvest time at Koramba.

Time’s flying at Koramba:

  • by

The time is flying by this time at Koramba. We’ve been here for 3 weeks already and have slipped back into the routine of camp life very easily. Chris is making good progress with converting the databases to web based programs and preparing them for installation on the cloud. As usual he rides the roller coaster… Read More »Time’s flying at Koramba:

Leaving Koramba Cotton Farm

  • by

They say all good things must come to an end. Well, this experience at Koramba Cotton Farm has been a good thing and it’s also at an end. The dawn is just starting to break on our last day here. After 7 weeks the final day has sort of snuck up on us and apart… Read More »Leaving Koramba Cotton Farm

A New Kitchen:

  • by

For the last couple of weeks we’ve been very busy. We thought by now we would have the place all cleaned up and been in a routine. No… we’re still doing long hours. Chris, as usual, convinced Martyn (our boss) that they needed new equipment out here if the place was to work efficiently. They… Read More »A New Kitchen:

A visit from Nola and Lloyd:

  • by

Last Sunday my sister and brother in law, Nola and Lloyd, came out to the farm to spend the day with us. I had awaited this visit with excitment for the last couple of weeks, after Nola told me they were planning to visit. They stayed in Goondiwindi Saturday and Sunday night and visited some… Read More »A visit from Nola and Lloyd:

Rubbish:

  • by

Why rubbish? At home we meticulously separate our recycle products from  the waste. Place them into our separate wheelie bins and then once a week put the wheelie bins out on the footpath. Making sure we  face them correctly or you receive a notice stuck to your bin like a wayward child that has been… Read More »Rubbish:

The cleaning continues:

  • by

Maybe Chris and I have been so indoctrenated with Health and hygiene procedures over the years that we automatically look at kitchens and see what’s wrong with them. This one sent us in to over drive. We had to get this kitchen and mess area to at least a basic standard of cleanliness for our… Read More »The cleaning continues:

A look around Koramba Farm

  • by

The evenings in the mess hall at Koramba Cotton Farm continue to be a lively and cheerful place with the crew glad to be over another hot 10 hour day. The latest ritual seems to be that they all come into the kitchen as soon as they arrive home to see what’s for dinner. Last… Read More »A look around Koramba Farm

More from Koramba Farm

  • by

Jackie, the cook awoke Sunday morning looking quite crook so we offered to take over the cooking as from Sunday. We don’t officially start work here till Monday and we’re supposed to start cooking on Thursday morning but we’ve already been working since we got here so we’re pretty much in the loop now. There… Read More »More from Koramba Farm

A look at the camp:

  • by

Just a couple of shots of the camp site. The Car/Van park at the back of the Donga’s. Pretty messy around this area as there is no cleaner at the moment. I will be doing this but haven’t said anything yet until Martyn comes out to show me what areas I will have to do.… Read More »A look at the camp:
