Until 28th November 2016 I lived on a 24p or roughly 610sm suburban block in Strathpine for 15yrs before selling up and becoming a FT house sitter. I ended up doing this for two years solid before settling back on Bribie, where I come from originally and my elderly parents need a bit of a hand. Having my own place to myself again is glorious....trouble is it has no yard for growing, just a small space for a few grow bags and pots. THE FOLLOWING RELATES TO THE GARDEN I HAD: A decorative gardener for most of my life, in 2010 I decided to start converting my yard into something much more productive. I had a few fruit trees and added three 4m long raised vege beds and more fruiting plants. I am very interested in learning about the uncommon food plants that will grow well in our sub-tropical climate and sharing these with others so we can all learn together. The clue to learning is sharing - information, plants and seeds. I don't follow any one form of gardening lore/theory but take from them what I think is useful to me: I am a no-dig gardener; I allow food plants to self seed (Amaranth, Mustard, lettuce etc); I compost all household kitchen scraps (nothing cooked) directly into the garden; I don't use any chemicals; I use mulch and intensive planting to suppress weeds; I eat the weeds/wild edibles where ever possible; I try not to let any organic material leave my yard via the bin - it should all be composted. My personal motto is KISS - I don't believe in unnecessarily complicated theories and methods that potentially put off the learner gardener. Nature keeps it simple and so should we. Emulate nature as much as possible.
