    One sheet of tin = new keyhole garden bed

    We have glass gem seedlings ready to plant, abs we will be planting some sweetcorn we found in a few weeks in an attempt to prevent too much cross pollination. Some sunflowers will make their way across the back as well.

    Fort Yeah MF - build thread.

    Got some more materials today. Had to get things other than as planned due to shortages and prices have increased on the things I did get which is annoying but I needed to secure what I can now to make sure I can go through with the build. Just under $420 left in the budget with roof and side...

    One sheet of tin = new keyhole garden bed

    Yeah the old 3 sisters method. Will be trying that in future for sure. Corn support the beans and pumpkin/squash covers the dirt to keep the weeds away and moisture in. I haven't tried growing corn before so looking to try it solo first before I add to it

    One sheet of tin = new keyhole garden bed

    Thanks Mandy, I have about 20 glass gem corn to be planted in a block and perhaps a pumpkin plant. It's going in next to the chook pen so if we can get something to climb chook pen be perfect

    One sheet of tin = new keyhole garden bed

    I'm actually going to use an old hose that was leaking profusely in this instance. Hold on with some wire. Won't need to do the whole thing as it has a fence on 2 sides. Thank you for the recommendation though, I'll likely need in the future

    One sheet of tin = new keyhole garden bed

    Still had some used tin laying around from the dodgy fence extensions that I've since fixed. Sick of looking at it so decided to get building. Very simple and cheap (est $20-25, guess around $50 if you needed to buy some 2nd hand tin off FB). Materials 1 x sheet used colourbond corro (3.4m...

    Snow Peas

    Snow peas are currently going bonkers here - usually picked every day but the wife and kids have been away for a few days before we get locked down again so looks more impressive. They're back today so I thought I'd grab a few snaps before they get pillaged by the little bloke.

    My Homebrewing Escapades

    Latest brew, cheeky peak 3Cs (Citra, cascade, centennial hops). A bit heavier (6.5%) than expected but still quite quaffable.

    Pallet Project's

    Hi all, got some pallets recently so hoping to recycle them all into little projects rather than burning them. Round 1 - I give you the Chick-nic Table This will get a mesh panel over the top and be used as a planter for fresh fodder in the chook pen. Made something cool out of pallets...

    Trellzilla - when is a trellis too big?

    Yeah they're fine, just not where we were hoping to have them as soil temps even in the greenhouse weren't high enough to germinate when expected. Was hoping to have the first round of tomatoes in by now but it is what it is.

    Trellzilla - when is a trellis too big?

    Definitely will be sharing, seedlings are still in the greenhouse. Weather has been my biggest pain, warm to cold and raining.

    Garlic 2021 season

    Hahaha me not so much Mandy but it's sprang back just fine. I also pull when they are yellow and browning, waiting too long for it to fall here usually results in unexpected late spring/early summer rain making me wait for it to dry so I can pull. Also find the bulbs may not be in the best...

    Cheap Galvanised Garden Bed

    Cant comment on Vidaxl specifically but there's definitely different levels of quality when it comes to galvanised steel. Bunnings $20 beds you can fold the steel like paper if you wanted. Proper bluescope sheets used for roofing you'd have to be fairly strong. It's like GSM of paper, and...
