Welcome Steve.
The 'Steves' are taking over this site....

:evillaughsmilie:

Sounds like you have a good stock of trees growing. Looking forward to hearing more about your plot.

Cheers.

What is it with Steve's and self-sufficiency? :D

You have lots of interesting and exotic trees and I'm very interested in getting your opinion (over time) on many of them. There are several you've mentioned that I've been considering putting in myself but wasn't sure how well the tree would grow in my loc or what the fruit was "really" like etc. I/we welcome you (another Steve) as part of our online SSC community and hope you enjoy it here.

Wamuran has a great rep not only as a good place to grow stuff but also as a top little community in general. Driving around the acreages out there is really interesting and there's plenty of well situated properties with excellent views and raised orchards - lucky you!

Welcome Steve! Gees that's a lot of fruit! How long have you being working on your property?
Thanks Stevo, been here about three years, the established garden and fruit trees was one of the big selling points and I have just added and a few removals since then
