I have been struggling with health issues for a while and I just started back doing more gardening this year. Mark never ceases to amaze me with the growth of his passion, and it's inspiring and encouraging. I have a young fruit forest in my backyard and front yard. And, I am adding more fruit trees as I go. We have been enjoying the fruit in the last 4 years. I try and keep my trees to a manageable height and so far they adapt.

I have a few garden beds at the front and backyard One day, I would like to upgrade to a no bend over garden beds. We are getting hotter each year, so I am also going to grow some of my veggies under the fruit trees.

I love learning about propagating plants either by cuttings, air-layering, or dividing. I like to learn more about grafting. My first attempt failed. I guess I lack patience. I also like hybridizing. I also like to grow tropical fruit and plants even if they are not native to my area. I have an avocado, I grew from seeds. I also have mangoes, ice cream, guava, frangipani/plumeria, sugarcane, pineapple. My first attempt with them didn't go well. I know they will grow and fruit in Adelaide, so I started some new ones.

I lack discipline in getting my plants in or sowing seeds on time. I just keep at it. No one is chasing me around the garden to get it done :yahoo::nuts:

To the Aussies stay warm and to our Internation friends, stay cool :wave:
