Moved here in March 2009 and spent the winter having trees felled and sorted. Hence we have heaps of mulch. Half an acre of good mud silt near Otaki River, in market garden road. Have planted Adriatic, Brown Turkey, San Pedro figs, Unique, Appollo and two other feijoas, heaps of heritage apples( some grafted by me). We are using the bucket system of humanure so the compost will be ready when the bought compost has been used. Barrel for seaweed, make bokashi, have worm farm, planning a wormorator toilet, make compost tea. Use lime flour and rock dust, Growing heritage tomatoes from seed, have eight vege beds, we eat lots of kale, lettuce, have planted two thornless blackberries, one passionfruit, two kiwifruit, one tamarillo, one macadamia nut, one boysenberry, one Chilean guava, one nectarine, one dwarf apricot, one lemonade. There was one lemon here when we got here, lots of manure and some morning sun and it is thriving now.
