Hi All. We moved to a house with a 1/4 acre block in East Branxton this time last year and I am finally getting there with my vege garden and small orchard. I have had to remove two large trees, various shrubs and vines, rotting carpet, pavers, bricks concrete etc to finally get my blank canvas. The previous owners had plenty of ornamental shrubs but no "useful" plants that produce anything or attract bees and insects. My young fruit trees have certainly taken a battering with the frosts we are having, but it will be a bit of trial and error to see what works. The girls certainly like all the digging I have been doing and are scratching up a storm. I will have to see how I go with the chook-proof fence around the garden. It could be a challenge, they are persistent little minxes. I have been a follower of Mark's youtube videos for a while so I thought I would join the forums as well. Cheers, Jen.
