"Did you pop some waterproof material under the fruit, Roger? Keeps it off the ground and saves likelihood of rotting."

November 12, 2017 from 10am to 12pm
SUNDAY 12 November 10.00AM - 12.00PMMost of us have had the pleasure of going to Susan's Garden and it is always a pleasure to revisit. Susan has written up a little piece about her garden - It wasn't too long ago that I had a visit here but it's always lovely to see the changes a season can bring. New things to have a look at- new chicken coop and we now have ducklings (who'll probably be big ducks by then), plantings down the side of the house, extensive herb garden on front balcony. Peaches…See More

G'day,

How are things at your place right now in the garden? I have noticed the garden changing - drying out for a while now with no rain to help.
