fire permit season came into force - so it is still possible to burn off, but you need a permit.
One bloke down our road seemed to have a constant fire going during winter. With my OH being a bit of a fire bug, of course he had to acquire a butane powered torch for burning weeds. It worked very well on the horrid thistle that pops up around the place. Then he progressed to torching the longish grass and weeds along the fence, where the terrain is too rough for either a mower or whipper snipper. Didn't enjoy himself at all, as you can see.
