Our farm (again I use that term loosely) had originally been part of a much larger dairy farm so was pretty much barren in terms of established trees with just a few Eucalyptus along the road frontage and a coupe of misshapen Jacarandas. There were also a few ornamentals around the house yard including some roses chewed off at ground level by cows that had been allowed to wander freely and a collapsing shade house densely packed and waist high with who knows what.
There was no vege garden but we did inherit a large Bell Chili bush and an overgrown Passion fruit vine that would later yield a harvest of more that 7kg of pulp.
So that's where we started this journey. Now I hope to use this blog to record our successes and failures on the farm, voice my opinions about life and generally track our progress as we aim to life a simple life.
