Jerusalem artichokes, chokos, nettles, chillies, tomatoes. 3/8/10,we moved here just over 1 year ago, still settling in. Have new skin on the 4m X 10m Flexi-tunnel house, and hope to have it set up for growing vegetables hydroponically, within 2 months.
Thanks for the tip! I was thinking about the soil - The land is by the beach and there's a high quantity of sand in the soil, as well as salt in the air. I'd like to learn how to get the soil to a good level, and design to protect the plants from too much salty wind, creating good foundations for a productive permaculture garden. Any ideas on where to get started?
