Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

It's a Jungle Out There


Parrots have been recently causing havoc in my vegetable garden. A big native tree next door has become the resting (or nesting) place for hosts of Rainbow Lorikeets


The hungry birds spent 2 weeks swooping commando-style onto my patio and eating all the sweet, new tender shoots - snow peas, dwarf kale, and parsley to name a few - before I realised by their squawking that it was them doing all the damage.

Some plants were totally stripped down to the ground. The snow peas valiantly re-sprouted, only to be savaged again and again. I eventually hung up sheets of aluminium foil which shivered and reflected sunlight in the breeze, and this seemed to keep the birds at bay. My parsley grew back rapidly from ground zero to full foliage in a couple of weeks. But the snow peas were severely traumatised.

Despite the severe beating, some of my snow pea plants have managed to reach maturity.

It's a jungle out there.
