It’s been hard work getting our gardens ready for this season. We really want to increase our capacity to grow our own vegetables.

Part of this was the decision to get 13 cubic meters of com(post)(worm)caste delivered from Tryton in Lismore.

It was just the boost our sand soils needed.

We’ve just finished now putting the last rocks that we know of on our block into place.

We have also been working away on our deck greens garden. The Broccoli, spinach, lettuce, Silverbeet, Mibuna and Onion seedlings are in!

There is more of the Gardens Here!

Kirrah has also been keeping a journal of the gardening for her course with the Life Academy. You can view it at her spot on wholistic, http://www.wholistic.com.au/health

    Your garden beds look wonderful, it must have been hard work moving all those rocks.
    It is still raining in Melbourne, the new water tank is now half full, we are very excited.

    I do admire you for all that you are doing… I am an expat living in Florida, USA… originally from Newcastle, NSW… I was just thinking if I had started a worm farm here in Florida… oh… with the humidity etc I could just imagine the raccoons coming to get at it… funny… I am just thinking of it… I don’t recall the last time I saw a worm in my yard/garden… it is mostly a sandy yard as I live right near the beach… keep up the good work…

    […] The Rockwall garden is fenced and ready for a spring planting, if only we get the water sorted out! […]
