Lime green leafhopper

First I've seen in Southland. Will he cause my fig to mottle?

Palm Kernel Expeller dust blown onto town during unloading

"From a purely business point of view, having it blowing in the wind simply isn't profitable."

That's where were are, folks!

I found it!!!

The wooden section of the handle needed replacing (it's now oak) and the blade's not as smooth as it once was, but it still a formidable tool for clearing grasses and it's sharper than you'd expect. I've sanded and oiled it, replaced the screws and filed the edge to a razor. Mostly though, I'm relieved that it's back. Greatly relieved.
