Diana - amazing looking cabbagecaulif and turnips. What do you feed them and do you have probs with them being nibbled by the bugs?
Robert - thanks for hints on Blueberries, I shall try the wholesale nursery as thay may be much cheaper than the gardening centres charge. Mind you Blueberries themselves are very expensive when bought from the supermarket/markets - they never seem to go below $5-$6 a small punnet, which my toddler grandson can eat in one session! He has been obsessed with them since a baby and that's what made me decide to grow them, so that I could feed them to him whenever!
Karen - I had a net over my chicken run as birds (pigeons/miners) were stealing the food but one ended up getting caught and it broke my heart, it was never my intention to kill, just keep them away. I have now bought shadecloth to put over the run as I seem to be losing half the feed to the wild birds!
Yet another day with no rain in sight - 3 weeks since our last rainfall!
As for soil for the variety of plants you mention, I think you would be best served by first getting a soil test so that you know what you are dealing with, then talk with some locals that are growing the plants you are interested in ... in lieu of me trying to literally "guess" what might work for you. Don't be afraid to knock on a door and just ask if you you see someone growing your preferences.
Sorry, not on Skype but I guess I could be...just never thought of it. :)
If you use pine needles or any type of pine, you need to mow over them with a mulching mower to make them smaller. If you just put needles on top of your plants, it take 1 year for them to break down. Sometimes more, depending on the weather.
