    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!

    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!

    Hi GL, just wondering how you were going with the Fruit & Veg stall?

    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.

    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 … 😉

    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 😀

    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:
