The Rain - What is everyone planting now.

Posted on February 11, 2020 at 9:30 0 Comments

Hasn't this rain been wonderful. It has made a tremendous difference to our place. Where all the Grass had died we now have Green & everything else has come back from being drought stressed. My Figs are so happy we even have babies on one tree for the first time.

I have been very quiet on the Blog front, almost 2 years quiet, due to not wanting and not being allowed (OT Rules) in the Veg Patch until my garden path had been replaced (due to bulging tree roots), and I have been…

Thank you for the warm welcome Dianne.

Morning Dianne

Thank you for the welcome. I am interested in being involved with the garden visits but I won't be in a position to do so until April 2021 onwards. I have changed my avatar as you suggested. I am pleased to share whatever relevant knowledge I have with any member on the forum, however this forum appears to already have lots of people more knowledgeable than I am, the thing I like about this forum is there doesn't appear to be any egotists, as in, this is the only way to do something, which is a most pleasant change.

Thanks Dianne

Thanks Dianne.  I'll have a look around and see how I might fit in.  Looking forward to learning about growing food in Brisbane.

I was very surprised to log in and see such a lovely welcome. I think I have a lot to learn from this group and hope I can share my own tips and ideas along the way. We have just created our first wicking bed, made totally from salvaged and reclaimed materials (except the soil). We are raring to go. I look forward to contributing where I can.

Hi Dianne, 

Thank you for such a lovely welcome! I've only been living in Brisbane for a year now and am trying to connect with like minded people, basically 'us mad gardeners'. 

Regards,

Selina.

 Hi Dianne, thank you very much for the warm welcome, I look forward to meeting the members.  Garden visits look good I hope I can join you in February.  A busy time in the garden at present after great rain.
