|Feed barrel wicking bed|
It was a wonderful day to explore the garden, gather new ideas, chat about gardening in general and share seeds and plant cuttings with other members over a little home made morning tea (complete with home made wine and icecream tasting). I was even fortunate enough to have the time to stay for lunch and sample some freshly baked bread.
Thank you Amanda and Mark for sharing your garden and food with us.
|Beautiful lush rosellas|
|Bishop's cap chillies|
|An orange loaded with fruit|
|The ducks live under the citrus and help with keeping the weeds down and fertilising|
|Awesome biplane made from beer cans. The propeller works!|
|Herb hanging pots make a nice screen for the deck. A pineapple steals the show in the middle.|
|Basil and a chilli bush with pumpkins quickly closing in|
|Home made stepping stones make a path around the banana and pawpaw (papaya) circle|
|Chickens in their safe pen, although the new hen managed to escape during the visit somehow|
|The raised beds will be converted to wicking beds due to water and nutrient leach from a nearby humongous fig tree (Ficus benjamina)|
