Hey Tony - I was very pleased when I saw your name and pic pop up on this group. I hope that you and your lads had a good christmas break :o) Now that I know you are into gardening I would love to have some gardening chats! I am a keen long time gardener who does everything people say won't work - but it seems to be mostly ok for me. Let me know if you intend to study again this year.
Noticed that you also reside in Flaxmere. I am looking into self sufficiency and living off the land. Noticed you had an interest in hydroponics - I am looking into aquaponics. Might be great to catch up for a cuppa and exchange notes, if you are keen. Riaz
Hi Tony, the cost of food was intially why I got into gardening. None of our kids are interested in gardening, although I have managed to change the perceptions of a few people at work. A couple now have gardens and a few chickens.
