On-line journal for a productive food garden on the edge of the outback in arid South Australia.
With freezing cold winters (frosts to - 10C) followed by scorching summers (temps up to 45C we make use of any water we get (Av rainfall 330.2mm).
The garden beds are shaded (during summer), heavily mulched, humus rich and most are now converted to wicking worm beds (20 beds).
Despite this harsh climate we manage to grow much of our own food.
aka Stumpy-tailed Lizard; Boggi;
Sleepy Lizard, Bobtail Lizard,
Two-headed Lizard and Pinecone Lizard
I have been waiting to catch a photo of this lizard for a couple of weeks. I first spotted it seeking a cool damp spot during the heat. Today it was seeking the warmth of the tyres along the driveway that have agapanthus growing in them.
This is a good spot for it to live because the agapanthus are renown for attracting snails and one of the Shinglebacks favourite meals is a snail!!!
