    @Mark Thank you so much for your thoughts and yes I'm not trying to mark a lot of money just maybe a small amount of pocket money. I just enjoy growing fruit and veges so I have thought why not share it around abit. I'm the type that will be happy if I make $20 after expences as we don't need...

    Compost

    Thank you #Mark I haven't tried the stuff from bunnings because to go to a bunnings is about one and half drive, hate to say it but the South Burnett area would do well if we could get one. I am trying some mushroom compost which I brought from our local landscape supply. I have planted carrots...
