    Thanks GKW, so many dreams but not enough time to do it all. Slow and steady, I guess.

    We have been busy with our new baby boy but we are not back in the garden. Check out this new video and see the changes from last year. Let me know if you want to see anything in more detail.

    So my daughter wanted to plant some purple plants! Needless to say we go some purple cabbages and purple flowers for her to plant. Check out the video. She’ll be a budding gardener for sure!

    A few pictures from this years garden

    Cheers for the link. I’ll check it out. I’ve heard of this method and I’ve tried it once with homemade timber stacking boxes - but with no success. Maybe I’ll give it another go this year!

    New raised garden bed placement

    Hey Jon, peeks crossing - is that near mt Barney? ClissAT is all over it. Position the beds in full sun and you’ll be fine. Use the natural shade created by the plants to protect the specific crops that like part shade while the others enjoy the full sun!

    Hello From Logan, QLD

    Congratulations on finding the group! Spinach is a great first goal! There’s plenty of variety to cover all seasons so you should be able to harvest all year! I’d recommend Brazilian spinach, warrigal greens and Egyptian spinach for hardy perennials.

    Question Cutworms

    I had a problem with cutworms a few years ago. Was horrible coming outside to check on the garden and finding young plants dying. I’ve heard that broken baked egg shells around the base of each plant are meant to work but I’ve never tried it.

    First go at fermenting Olives

    I bet some people would pay to come and pick olives to take home :)

    any idea what these are and are they edible?

    We have a few of these at work. Extremely tart and the fruit fly seem to sting most of them before you get a chance to eat them yourself.

    Easiyo yoghurt with milk powder

    Definitely ClissAT, make sure you blend it really well otherwise it’ll come out grainy. I’ve never tried to use flavoured yoghurt as a starter. Let me know how it turns out.

    Easiyo yoghurt with milk powder

    Nice one mate, cheers for the tips. I freeze good quality yoghurt as my culture for when the yoghurt starts to have off flavours from using the previous yoghurt each time.
