Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
two years ago we finally found the property that we had dreamed of. coming from a 1/8 section in devonport we had ripped up as much as possible of the garden to start growing veggies soon to realize that more room would be required to actually achieve some of our lofty goals. so.... we ended up on an established permaculture designed property with two veg gardens, over 100 fruit trees and a sub tropical garden. (it used to be kay baxters place)
on our first anniversary we have achieved our short term goals of providing us our fresh food requirements. (except lemons and onions) year two we have feed ourselves, saved seed, preserved and home killed a couple of beasts with out neighbours. we have spent alot of time tidying our or teeny weeny house, we have some solar, wood burning oven, composting toilet etc. and have just finished renovating both of our chalets for people to come and see our version of living off the land. we also share the property with a guided tour.

Hi Jacee, wow, I love your garlic.  Very impressive.  I tried to grow some last year and it didn't even flower.  Its self seeded this year and already about 12 cms tall.  Fingers crossed and lots of water huh ! Have just read your bio and looked at your pics. You are an artist as well as a gardener supreme!  I am just dabbing in a very small space at the front of the house as the backyard is shaded by huge trees on my northern boundary.  One day Jacee,one day when retired maybe a little plot like yours.

Hey Jacee, Thank you so much for such a lovely tour! Both  myself & my friend Wendy throughly enjoyed ourselves & we are both inspired to grow more vegetables & I am also feeling more at ease about growing more fruit trees in my paddock. It was the distance that was always a worry for me but now seeing your trees growing very well together has changed my mindset & now I am able to put in a lot more...hooray! :O)

Thank you Jacee, I am sooooo looking forward to this tour of your property.  I has been something that I have wanted to do for quite some time & I can hardly believe it's coming true haha.  Does 11am work for you?  I am happy to change it to work around you as I am pretty flexible.

Excellent! I'll get some seeds sorted to sow in spring. Don't stress, I am in the same boat too...just having a go like you hehe. Its just nice to have a mate to share stuff with. My husband & teenage sons have no interest in what I do which is fine...sometimes lol. (they are musicians) But they sure love eating everything that I grow but it's not the same as talking about the trials & successes of it all.

Oh how kind of you! I'll let you know when I'll be down that way to take a cutting or for a guided tour.  I've been following Kay Baxter's articles pretty much since she was a writer in one of my fav mags called Growing Today before it merged with Lifestyle Block & still to this day a strong believer of her gardening sense. So, here's a question.... do you have some kind of simple herbal lay under your fruit trees?  I know you can buy 1kg bags of the mix but, I want to do this on the cheap & use just a sprinkling of different seeds. I have comfrey plants growing under each of my trees but nothing else.  Guess, I've got to stop being so lazy & goole some more huh?lol.
