In the last couple years, I have ignored both the grapes and the gooseberries as far as pruning went, probably because I do not live at the property, and was away doing other things. But finally this winter I pruned the two grape vines and the gooseberry bush quite far back. I left at least two b...
We decided that we wanted to build using only Earth-Friendly and Sustainable Methods and, no sooner had we made this decision, we were met with a major obstacle - where and how to live during the years it would take to build suitable shelter.

We had some old tyres laying around from a failed project years ago and we laid them out on the b...

existing plants on the property and monitor the sun, wind, moisture, slope and
For this working bee we welcomed a few new people. We built a no-dig garden bed on top of an old one which was damaged during the flood. Then planted alyssum, egg plant and tomato seedlings. I used some palm fronds to provide some shade for the seedlings to protect them from the often burning sun.
