HI Dinah thanks for that. yes I know who Sprocket is. We actually lived next door to him when we were building.
We get our wood from his place for our fire.
There aren't that many sections in town we could be, with 3/4 of an acre. ( 2? 1?
wouldn't be hard to figure out where we are.
I got a load of soil in from the Mumballup Organics when we set up our front yard. When we eventually do something with the back I'll be paying him a visit for more soil though. ATM the back is very rocky and we don't have the water pressure to retic out there so we have focused on the front area for now. My plan is to evetually put raised veggie beds out the back. For now though my veggies are a front garden "feature" Today we planted 34 pincushion hakeas along one boundary to start a hedge. All tray sized seedlings as that was the biggest size we could dig holes for. I've also started chicken wiring along that boundary. blah I have about 70 m to go. Hopefully the rabbits decide its too cold to come out tonight.l it was 2.9C at 6.40am this morning. Hate to think what it got down to over night.
The next tree stock to go in will be either apple or mandarin. We planted a lemon about 3 weeks ago and I've got some mulberry plants/trees to put in when HUbby's back is up to digging into the rock again.
I had bought some larger plants for a road side fence hedge a while back but i will have to get soil from Sprocket first. The area is too much clay to dig down and I'll need to build a raised bed first.
The weeds are going nuts atm. My entire front yard garden area is completely covered except our small patch of lawn. I need to get out with the hoe and get stuck into them.
