Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We are developing a 5,500 sq block at 430m elevation near Egmont National Park, as an organic/permaculture property. We bought it in November 2010, so its early days yet. Read all about that at http://www.permaculture.geek.nz In the meantime we have 809 sq section near CBD. A few established fruit trees. Successfully growing potatoes, yams, kumara, courgettes/marrows, snow peas, sweetcorn, silverbeet, cabbages kamokamo, kikuyu and weeds. Struggling with beans, tomatoes, capsicum and several other crops this year. Still learning heaps. The garden is taking a bit of a back seat while we prepare the house for sale.
