Hi guys, thought Id better start a thread for our garden although its not much but we have grown some great produce this past year.

Have recently pulled all the peas and other winter plants out to make way for some summer crops. Firstly the corn has gone in and will be throwing in some heirloom tommies this weekend.

Couple of pics of the small area we are working with.

That corn is looking nice and tall already :thumb: . I looked at some last week at the nursery but decided against it after poor performance over the past few years. You need to get some pea straw down before the sun really kicks in :scared2:

Thanks guys.

Good idea on the pea straw burnsy, it is really starting to warm up here now. Might grab some tomorrow.


We are pretty lucky with our lawn Faye, the front and back are the same, its like a soft carpet, really good for the kids to play on.


Heres the carpet out the front...

Corn is coming along nicely, put some straw down (thanks simo) and harvested some nice little purple cabbages.

I think you would be quite surprised in the newer area's here Faye. Within the new estates you wouldnt even know you were in kalgoorlie... all nice and green and not a patch of red dirt or gumtree in sight. Mind you, as soon as you drive out of the burbs reality sets back in. :sad2:

I think the last time I was there was 1983 when Wales and CBA merged to Westpac.
