Wow...so glad this popped up :) really nice to see all the pics and read what you are growing. Even better to see your produce. Ive fenced of a wee part of the garden (dobie proofed) its spring here and ive just planted broccoli, spinach, silverbeet and strawberries along with a selection of lettuce. Just waiting for the weather to get a tad warmer before continuing with tomatoes and courgettes. Tree wise.... ive put in some guava's, mandarin, pompino,  pomegranite and passion fruit...all my trees have a guard...as two dogs playing in the garden tend to damage them easily. We had a drought last year but this year im more prepared with my seaweed and compost mulches. Peastraw is really good for snails I hear so a layer of that down everywhere. Im struggling to get a pic up ...it must be down to my dial up i think...i have read webbies instructions :( Anyways thanks for sharing :)

Eating them is no problemo Katie LOL!  Made spaghetti sauce from scratch for supper, mmm it was delicious and I'm stuffed now! 

Q T  That's fantastic!  You'll have to get some pics up for us!  All my stuff is in containers so they were dobie-proofed that way but I'm not too sure how it's gonna work next year when we move...we shall see!  Yummmm I would love to have pomegranite trees, I don't think they would grow here though.  I just love how much more flavour my veggies have than the ones at the store that have spent a few thousand kilometers bouncing around in some truck to get to me.  It barely feels like eating veggies this way, definitely not boring or bland!   

Hopefully you'll be able to get pics up soon, I love seeing what other people are growing in their neck of the woods :)
