    I live in Qld. My parents do a lot of gardening. Mum has said that thanks to global warming our winters our now so rubbish that she has found autumn is actually a good time of year to plant stuff here. My plan is to just bung it in and hope for the best.

    Anyone know what else you can grow without seeds? As in celery, spring onions etc. I'm in Canberra so cold frosty winter. I've got rocket in the garden beds, have pulled out some herbs to transplant into pots to see if they can get through winter if protected from frost. I've also put in sugar snap and snow pea seeds. If the ants don't get them and we survive the zombie apocalypse they should start fruiting after the frosts.

    @Elijahs Mum I did listen to the PMs press conference this evening and they said they would be discussing tenants on Tuesday. So maybe there will be more information coming.

    Autumn in QLD is great, less chance of mildew than humid summertime too.

    I am in a defacto relationship and my partner is a 2nd year apprentice who is on 45k a year plus a 4 yr old who is in our care 42% of the time. It is really frustrating atm. If anyone knows more than me, on what's going on with it all, that would be amazing

    I hope everyone is coping in this current state of the world xx
    I could be wrong but my understanding is....
    If you've been laid off, thou should be entitled to the job seeker payment. I think it's aroung 550/ fortnight (based on what I've read saying the 2nd stimulus pack will double it) you should be entitled to it without a wait period. It will reduce due to your partners income.
    You'd possibly be entitled to ftb as you've got the child more than 35% of the time... and maybe rent assistance too.... and maybe a concession card? Maybe child support? Depending on who the child belongs to and the other parents situation

    The 1st stimulus package announced a 750 payment, I'm not sure if you will or wouldn't get that based on dates. But centrelink may know.
    The 2nd pack said jobseekers and a few others would get an extra 550/fortnight for 6 months because of the coronavirus.... and if they aren't eligible for the 550/ fortnight they get a 2nd round of 750 in (?) July.

    Could you buy a little hot house and grow some things in that ?

    So much for national coordination. The ACT education minister said that schools will be closing from Tuesday and that she has no idea why the PM suggested otherwise. Ouch. Anyone get the feeling the national cabinet meetings are quite sparky?
