Trying to show just how important sunlight can be - by comparing two gardens almost side by side. Also sneaking in a quick promising garden tour.

Flat out here as well Dianne. Not the least watering. Dry as a chip.
Thanks for sharing your Video Andy. Personally I do love the Grow Bags, do you remember when we had a GV here and I had several Grow Bags lining our Back Yard. Our MINI Cabbages & Cauliflowers were as large as normal and the Artichokes grow like mad.
We are trying out the Bale Gardens but only had room for 5 so I intend to go ahead and do some more Bag Gardens as well as we still have a mountain of bags her. We are planning a GV here in January so I had best get working, though We really have already worked our butts off over the past 2 weeks, but there is always more to do, just ask any gardener.
Yes. Was gonna say that.
Grow bags for Handsome Men.
Looking at your yard I reckon they'd be a wonder for your space take up. Bags, and a very good hand trolley.
You know: handsome and strong!
I've always found this video inspiring of baghood.
No splits this year ... but I know you are talking about me having to do the transfer of the damaged box. I haven't done it yet. I don't want to say that I'm scared... but I am.
Sorry Andy, it must be the grey matter playing up again. Hope the banana goes well in the bag. We have a Senorita banana in a tub out the front yard growing through the poinciana tree, waiting for a flower. It keeps needing water. Your peach tree is looking good.
Our back 3 tanks are empty so we need rain soon. Have you split your hives yet.
Yeah true Jeff. In fact, my south side becomes the major growing space in summer because things on the north tend to fry. Christa - while I appreciate that Dave is a devilishly handsome man just like me, I'm afraid my name remains Andy. I've followed the Doug plan of 100 liter grow bags instead of the mulch bale beds. They seem to be working pretty darn well.
In summer shade is OK because there is longer days and usually plenty of light but in winter vegetables are not going to reach their potential with shade colder temperature and shorter days plus the shadows are longer. .
Dave, good video, it all comes down to being able to get a tree to grow tall enough to reach some sunlight and then it can compete with it's neighbouring trees for flowers. I think when sunlight is limited, we need a dedicated sunny garden bed for vegetables. I can get flowers to grow under trees in tubs but vegies are much harder. Mint and shallow rooted greens are OK.
Are you going to try a cane mulch vegie bed? We have that in mind, I believe Dianne is well ahead of me in time. We are a bit slow now. I am finding it a challenge to get through the back garden on unlevel ground.
