    Thanks for the tour slowlynow, it’s looking good, a work in progress as most of our food stuff gardens are.

    I look forward to an update on your aquaculture garden. That’s a nice healthy looking passion fruit you have growing there.

    🙂

    Bobbee, the passion fruit is growing fantastically. I’m a little worried that the rampant root system of the passion fruit will start to infiltrate the garden beds in the vegie patch!

    Oh! I hadn’t realized passion fruit root systems could be a problem slowlynow . I know from experience that the root systems don’t like to be interfered with.

    Thanks for letting us have a look around your gardens. It’s great to see where others are up to. We’re also on the NSW Sth Coast backing onto bush and have problems with citrus even growing. I’m persisting but the only one that has fruited consistently in 7 yrs is a Eureka lemon. The others struggle to even grow so I am starting to wonder if they’re even worth it. Mulberries are growing out of their skins and apples are growing beautifully. We have also had bananas and we get frost so they could be worth trying if you have a sheltered spot from the winds. The roos are another story and we’ve had to fence our entire gardens as I came out one morning and everything was gone. We’ve put the fruit trees into groves which has helped immensly with the weather they get battered with and also maintenance and letting the chooks clean up under them as each grove is fenced.

    Hope you caught some of the recent rains in that huge tank.

    Mistyhollows, yeah citrus seem to be a bit of an enigma down here. Have been wanting to get a mulberry for some time, will have to get on that one!

    Yep, fencing seems to be the one true deterrent for the wildlife, saving now for the orchard fence now!

    Filled the tank before the last 75mm of rain, so ‘wasted’ around 22,500 litres :(. Guess the tank was flushed a bit!
