Wow how much work have you done in a year calliecat! It’s looking good 🙂May 28, 2015 at 8:00 am #538028
thank everyone, just waiting for things to grow nowMay 29, 2015 at 10:31 am #538029
Nice to see what you have done calliecat, so much better to have a backyard productive instead of just a lawn.May 30, 2015 at 2:15 am #538030
callie next week is going to be very cold might pay to tuck the pepino in for the Winter…. I’ve been covering my stuff here for weeks.May 30, 2015 at 3:26 am #538031
thanks Judi even though it’s in a sheltered spot??- but I will do though, was not expecting flowers on it for another year at least
RTB, yes lawn is such a wasteJune 25, 2015 at 11:57 pm #538032
Awesome backyard! i’m not a green thumb so i am amazed with people who can really plant, just wanted to plant a little flowery ones, what can you suggest? and whats the easiest to plant that bears fruits and veggies that i can use in juicing? i wonder if i can just plant fruits and veggies to make it easier for me to harvest , cheaper esp i’m into juicing lately and it really costs me a lot whenever i buy fruits and veggies for my juicing habit… ginger , carrots, etc suggestion?July 6, 2015 at 11:56 pm #538033
just planted 60 cloves of garlic,
broad beans flowering
peas flowering, and my first head of broccoli has shown itselfJuly 6, 2015 at 11:58 pm #538034
ok having problems with photos that I didn’t have last time??July 9, 2015 at 5:25 am #538035
sorry Chrissy, only just saw your post, lettuces and tomatoes are very easy to growJuly 12, 2015 at 10:17 am #538036
what a wonderful garden ! its really inspiring to see how much you’ve doneSandraJanuary 2, 2016 at 4:29 am #538037
found it 🙂 – just found your comment starruby, – thankyou, very pleased with it all 🙂
update, got nowhere with the garlic, will try it in pots next time
made a shadehouse, the yard is also now full of fruit trees,
apples – both normal and tropical, having a bet each way and see how we go,
stone fruit, peach, nectarine, peachcot,
pepinos which I will put in pots next time, have heaps of fruit but yet to taste any, due to me not covering it properly, and not realising just how it grew – sprawling and all over the place
cherry – not sure how that will go?? the weather might beat that one?
custard apple, second one, this time hopefully out of the frost
pear, and nashi,
and figs, they have gone in wicking pots due to them having very agressive root system, I have lots of pipes underground which has restricted me at tad, but working round that
tried uploading photos the other day, but not sure what I was doing wrong, it didn’t work- haven’t done it for so long
but all in all, very happy with it all, some trees have gone in wicking pots
going to do a kind of edible forest guild – my version of it anyway 🙂
so I’ve been reading up on that
some of my other trees have also gone into wicking pots, due to proximity of the underground pipes, and also some places have clay, so it’s just easier to put into pots,January 2, 2016 at 10:18 am #538038
calliecat’s place is starting to look good and feral LOL
lots of work been done thereJanuary 2, 2016 at 11:37 am #538039
My neighbour in Melbourne had a pepino on a fence for years.
Apparently fruit fly love them so I havent been tempted
Tasted a bit like cantaloupe.
Maybe if I get some netting I might give it a go.January 2, 2016 at 12:40 pm #538040
have tasted it once, next time it will go in a bathtub and covered and containedJanuary 8, 2016 at 10:18 am #538041
wow – just had a look at the first photo, hard to believe it was only 18mnths ago, so bare back then,
got fed up of having all these pepinos fruiting and not ever tasting one, found one that was ripe, managed to get 2 bites before I hit whatever it is that gets into them
need to figure out how I go those photos on here??
