    My family and I live in the hills outside of Perth on an acre of land, I have always been a keen gardener, just never been able to put it into practice (FIFO). I find permaculture very appealing and have been busy, on my time, off creating gardens along those principles. Look forward to more learning and discovery.

    Hello Ian and welcome,
    I think your climate is very similar to mine ... dry! Are you amongst wheat farmers?
    Is that a beet??? If so, nice one!

    Thanks for the welcome, we have very dry summers, up to 45 degrees celcius + and down to -6 in winter. We are just on the edge of the wheat belt, although a lot of farmers here tend to either graze cattle, grow oaten hay, and there are some grape vineyards. We have plenty of rain, mainly in winter and except for the Bauxite and Gold mine, a lot of water catchment bushland. We have the Hotham River quite close to us, unfortunately not on our property, so our ground is very sandy, Yes that is a Beet, or Beetroot as we call them, we had some great crops last winter. Cheers!
