Mark and Mal's fabled farm...
« on: November 02, 2012, 08:27:42 am »
Ok, so I decided to start a photo thread of all the special views and stuff on our farm... and as we'll soon be building a special WD hang-out spot there, I guess we can start with the pretty stuff already...

Lovely views....are you going to grow stuff...arable land/water etc?
 :drif:

We have ordered 2000 macadamia trees which we will receive in 3 years time and will order another 2000 at the end of next year.
Water is plenty, Borehole with beautiful clear drinking water and the our farm is bordered by a stream on one side and a small river on the other. We also have 10 water rights so water is not a problem.

We have a small fruit orchid which gives us fruit for bottling/preserve etc and have started growing plenty black berries. This weekend we are taking up 20 Protea plants which the florists in Nelspruit are interested in buying from us when flowering.

Also testing out tree lucerne, planting 10 trees this weekend.

I gave up on tree lucerne. The rabbits eat it faster than it grows. Its not as hardy as the smous claims.
