Being hopeful…

This year we hope to get a bumper crop; hopefully enough to feed us for a few months. It would be great to not have to buy any vegetables at all. Hopefully, we beat the bugs and grubs, the weirdly warm weather, and the lack of rain!


With that in mind I am posting some photos I came across accidently. I discovered that our camera had a clipboard (not sure why we hadn’t found this before) and on it were a number of shots of our first big brassica crop from 2011. If we can pull in a crop like that again we would be very happy!

Fingers crossed!



About A Kailyard in Adelaide

A Kailyard in Adelaide! We are working hard to be domestically sustainable in the foothills of Adelaide. As we both work fulltime this is not an easy task, but we do our best growing much of our own produce in our yard and in our community garden plots. We reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible and try hard to not consume mindlessly. We have 5000 l of rainwater, a 5 kw solar system, and use a green energy provider for all our excess needs.

    Best of luck to you. A garden is an enjoyable process. You not only get the enjoyment out of working it, getting your hands in the soil, but when reaping the harvest. Our bugs, grubs, and pests have found our garden years ago…it just challenges you think up ways to defeat them…organic of course. 🙂
