Welcome from north Cumbria in England  :wave:  also with family in Oz (as MGWM says, most of us do!)

Looking forward to hearing how you get on  :thumbsup:
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Hello, I have a brother in Melbourne (Lilydale) and visited a couple of years ago. I was amazed at what was grown with sparse rainfall and the produce at Victoria market has to be seen to be believed! However, 4 weeks was enough for me, too big, too foreign, too far from home :)

Oh you wouldn't say sparse rainfall at he moment! There have been record floods, and parts of Victoria and NSW have been declared disaster areas. You must have visited during the drought Sylvia, which has now officially been declared over. Big? Oh HUGE ;) Have driven almost the length of the east coast a couple of times, Cairns to Victoria-3380kms in 3 days. Rather tiring really!

Hi from Aberdeenshire - I'm still quite new here myself...

Your posts are bringing back memories of a wonderful 8 months back in 1984/85, when I was in Victoria on an agricultural exchange... (Yes, I am that old - frightening!)
