I'm from North Queensland. I'm so new here, I haven't even looked around yet. It's exciting to find this forum, I must say. I hope to meet and learn from other tropical gardeners especially. Here in the north, we have a monsoon type of climate. My home is by the sea so it gets quite humid. Our winters are mild and tend to be dry.
Like the crazy cellist, I am also a cycle tourist. I'd love to meet any others peddling through the forum too.
I'm just starting out on my first vegetable gardening experience. We have one hectare of land here. Its already planted up with lots of unproductive things and to start off with, I am just planting whereever there is sunshine. As things go on, I will chop down other things cluttering up our patch that are not doing much except preventing the grass from growing and replace with fruit trees.
I hope to grow chickens and ducks but I have to rely on someone with know how to build the house first as I am pretty useless at that sort of thing. I'd have a go if i had plenty of money but I am working on a limited budget.
Today I put in a lot of seeds for the first time, except a few coriander which i noticed have just started to show their little green tops. Which is very thrilling.
I look forward to meeting and mixing in here.
