I have an acre of land, surrounded by native bush.Organic vege garden and a small orchard.I also keep a small flock of free loading chickens, that seem to take great pleasure in destroying my gardens whenever they manage to find a new ecsape route.

Hi Donna - a jolt from your past life, John from Solar electric. Saw your comment in N.Z. Gardener and it took me awhile to remember who you were. How are things on the W.Coast, garden-wise & otherwise. cheers for now - John V
you can't have too many fruit trees, but when possums treat them like a smorgasbord its pretty demoralising, I enjoy watching the buds, blossoms and baby fruits though! which do you find grow best for you? our nashi is always laden, pears, figs and fejoas do well. we get a handful of plums, hopefully its just because they are young trees and only a few apples survive splitting in the wet spring. the lemon is finally producing a few fruit also after three or four years.
HI Donna, nice to come across you here on Ooooby, (we met through the NZgardener email remember) you can see pics of my garden here if you want :)
my chickens will have to be back in their coop now because I just planted some peas and mesclun, and they would have it in a moment!
