It's April already, Easter has been and gone, so how are those northern gardens going as spring settles in? Perhaps you can let us know in the garden journal challenge and if it's autumn where you are we'd love to see what's happening in your garden too.
Things happening in the community.
Some highlights of the week
Farm life certainly has a lot going on especially when you're new to it. @edprivat and family have had a busy month as the new chickens settle in, posts go in, trees get rescued from creepers and much more.
After losing a lot of mango trees in the droughts, it will take around a decade to being new trees to fruiting point, so @breezin has been working on other potential cash crops in the interim. This week she shows us how she is starting dragonfruit from fresh fruit seeds.
I thoroughly enjoyed this lighthearted description on composting and kids from @bobydimitrov. What a relaxed and refreshing approach to that process and life in general.
Even if you don't have soil to grow directly in, you can still make a paved area into a garden, as @latifah1 demonstrates with her chilli plants in polybags...and a pretty garden it is too.
Each week one of our featured authors will be selected to be a 5% beneficiary of The Lotus Garden newsletter. This week @bobydimitrov will receive this award.
