Thats the front and at the back

Behind the house, the garden is starting to grow too. The GIANT Allium, is Russian Garlic, given to me by a lady that I met on an Introduction to Permaculture course. It is enormous, each clove is the size of a normal garlic bulb. It has a milder flavour and roasted and eaten like an oniion. It is has been in her family for four generations, amazing. There are lots of varieties of heritage vegetables like this in australia, some of them have even become extinct in their original country. One of the many reasons why seeed saving is so important. The poatoes in their cages are doing well with all this rain.

Good stuff Katie.

I'd forgotten about your blog ... till (or should I use an alternative word) I saw the link on your digital signature card.

I'm going back to setting up different sprinkler trials cuz I reckon drippers keep stuff alive but they don't do anything for soil improvement

Your pot edgings look nice, but they might be a bugger with harbouring slugs and snails, etc. The bigest improvement I did in my old front garden was getting rid of plants that provided snail cover... dietes, agapanthus, etc..
