Growing Fast Food – 30th December 2015

Growing Fast Food – 30th December 2015

When we first moved in, we quickly created a raised veggie bed to produce food and within the next month our tomatoes, capsicum, asparagus, eggplant, string beans, broad beans, pumpkin and snow peas will start producing.

To help make the garden bed as productive as possible we added mushroom compost that we bought from the side of the road from a mushroom producer, mountain soil we collected from piles that have been excavated from the side of the mountain to maintain the roads after rock slides when it rains, plus we added horse manure we had also bought in bags locally.

Erosion is one of our major issues here at Arborlon. We have come to realise that the mountain is constantly moving, and that movement is downwards. Water erosion, physical erosion, rock falls and plant loss are all part of the erosion picture.

So many of our projects have been aimed at restoring stability through planting, terraforming and construction.
