Hey all

We've just nearly finished building our house and I couldn't resist but to plant a few Tomatoes. I know it's late but I love green pickled tomatoes do hopefully they grow.

This is my blank canvas

Are you in northern Melbourne maybe a bit west
Looks like black clay soils
Pretty heavy compaction
Air and organic matter are you friends

Re your fences they need to get propped straight dig around the posts add a bit of cement and tamp them down

Oh forgot about my post.

Yes northern sub Melb and soil is heavy black clay. My plan is to introduce lots of sandy loam and a little compost.
Compost will be mainly bought on for garden beds
