Our organic vegetable garden is small and highly experimental at present, but from time to time produces some impressive crops.

This zuchini from a garden bed located at the edge of a native bushland is large, but very tasty. It is sweet, like a watermelon and can be eaten raw.

 

One of the key features of our garden is the dome greenhouse, with temperature control and automatic ventilation (see the photo below).

The greenhouse is double-glazed and because of its aerodynamic shape it stays calm even during strong winds above 100 km/h that are quite frequent here.

When we learn enough about gardening, the greenhouse will enable us to grow food crops all year round, even in frosty winter months.

Using the greenhouse we plan to achieve 80% self-sufficiency in food supply.
