Sadly in suburbia these days, I did have a few acres on the coast a little further south 8 years back, sadly property settlements and so forth, so I start again - again - again.
Son and I have a 5 year plan for this place, expires May 31st this year. We do not have water tanks in as yet, but then it hasn't rained very much. Looking at setting up a solar distillation plant for the ground water, just for drinking it is fine for the garden, the solar panel on the shed gives us 17 litres a minute via a small caravan pump in the shed stuck on the end of a 4 metre pvc pipe.A before and 2 current shots. Every plant is edible, the only palm is a coconut we mulched hundreds of others.
