‘this apple is sure to disappoint’ :clap:January 8, 2010 at 5:22 am #442200
A Nashi Deb? Right, I’ll put that on the list of possibilities. And a feral plum too Murphyslaw … there are a few next door so bound to be a feral seedling nearby. Shangri la – I have done some freelance graphic art work over the years, but have never taken it very seriously. I might one day (have to think of ways to earn a quid when I quit the corporate world!).
Kristal … I’m with Phoenix … awesome plants at your place, even if you deny credit for them! And yes, swing by my place sometime – we’re on the same side of the river!January 19, 2010 at 6:08 am #442201
Update! My builder arrived this morning and started putting up the frame! Will take photos tonight when I get home …January 19, 2010 at 9:39 am #442202lynnieMember
yah yah GF… when will he have it ready??January 19, 2010 at 9:50 am #442203
Its a between-the-jobs job, so he will finish it off when he has the next gap in his schedule. No rush, as I have no surplus produce to sell at the moment. He did more than the frame today – it has all its walls as well. Coming along nicely!June 22, 2010 at 11:10 pm #442204
Hi GL, just wondering how you were going with the Fruit & Veg stall?June 23, 2010 at 4:13 am #442205bushyMember
Another thing to think about, if the stall faces north you will need a larger awning or as some ppl do, use a roll down blind to shield the fruit from the sun.June 24, 2010 at 12:46 am #442206
*Bump*June 24, 2010 at 11:14 am #442207
Update then! Yes, it has been built. No, it has not been in use yet, apart from me putting some of my apple harvest in there just to take a photo! Truth is, it probably won’t be in use for a couple of years, when I get some better systems in place and don’t work full time.
For the full story, check out EG’s Backyard Farmer out in September … 😉June 24, 2010 at 12:13 pm #442208

BTW your inbox is full :uhoh:June 24, 2010 at 1:27 pm #442209epiphany_Member

And I like the idea of a mulberry tree but they are rather slow growing. Hmmm … I await inspiration …
Probably depends a bit on variety…I have a King Shahtoot mulberry that went from a 30cm stick to over 6′ tall over spring & summer this year. And that included me pruning it twice to try & keep it smaller!
Good luck with your stall…it looks really lovely 😀June 25, 2010 at 2:25 am #442210
Epiphany, that is exactly the tree I want! I came across it in my research, and read all about it, and decided that is the tree I want to plant. But sadly they are not available in Tasmania, and there is no mainland wholesaler who has them and can ship to Tasmania. Believe me, I tried! I rang everyone I could think of.
And I’m still sulking about it … :noapprove:June 25, 2010 at 2:28 am #442211kerripMember
We planted one of the mulberry’s yesterday. I hope mine grows like yours did
