I started taking an interest in gardening about twelve year ago. I didn’t believe I could get so much pleasure from gardening, although I had read others do. I enjoy growing something different to the norm, although we do have very hot summers and frosts to work around. That makes it all the more a challenge!! I find our garden creates a lot of excitement, I walk around outside several times every day to check out which plant is flowering, fruiting etc. We have two raised garden beds where we grow our own vegies, we have a Satsuma blood plum and a lime and lemon in half barrels. We have a compost bin and a worm farm to help with our gardening.
Yes, Horsham probably has warmer summers than Castlemaine but not by much. One of my favourite ABC presenters comes from your neck of the woods and my son lived there for a number of years.
Love Satsuma plums, I’ve bottled a lot of them in my time and they make a great plum jam as well.
I couldn’t find a caption for your photo – is it one of the Lithops?
Hi and I am in Murtoa! My vegie gardening is done in broccoli boxes mostly
