We have had Native Raspberries(Rubus probus) in pots at the top of the driveway now for almost a year. They have done well, but they do cop a bit of a hiding from the traffic, the sun, the birds etc. So we have decided to move and replace them.
The Raspberries will go to the ‘Raspberry Patch” and they will be replaced with Lomandras.(Lomandra longifolia, Lomandra hystrix, Lomandra confertifolia)
Save your egg shells to make great calcium for the garden. Food scraps are great for worms, but worms don’t digest egg shells, so instead of throwing them out, you can store them in a separate container to be ground into calcium powder for the garden.
After lots and lots and lots of planning we are ready to start digging, and concreting, the footings for the Fire Deck.
The house here at Arborlon has a somewhat primitive grey water system. Water from the bathroom sink, kitchen sink, and shower drains to a grey water reservoir just outside the house in our back yard. it is a small-ish concrete tank set in the ground. It has a submersible dirty water pump that runs intermittently, and the outlet is just a grey water pipe extended down the hill below the house.
