I have been doing alot at the Estate recently and I thought readers might appreciate an update
Below is a view of the property – 20 acres in country Victoria of regrowth gum forrest (formally gold mined). Its heavily damaged withlittle top soil and although its a forresst the gums offer very little shade.
The videos below show a quick walkaround of the property showing the 20 fruit trees I planted in September, and the new area I have planted on the inside of the fenceline and the plan I have for a fountain and water feature that I hope will cool down the house when it is hot.
The fruit trees were hit hard but look like they will still survive by the unprecedently hot week we had about a month ago (where the whole week was around 40 degrees).
There is also now a new area of planting that we put in the previous week that I hope will start improving the soil and water retention.
