You are so VERY welcome here and I disagree.... there can never be enough rambles on here lol!!!
Brambles no, rambles yes!
Ramble away my dear, to your heart's content! I love hearing about your gardening antics lol and anyone else's too.
I think you'd love to read Peter Andrew's series "Back from the Brink" and "Beyond the Brink"... freaking AMAZING texts on helping to protect our precious Australian landscape. In a COMPLETELY Australian way as only he can.
When you read and absorb his writing, it could give you a complete paradigm shift in the way you view the landscape. He really helps us understand capturing water and holding water in the soil. I'm a total devotee lol.
Back a few pages, Shelll mentioned a free Course she was doing online. I think quite a few places are opening up free online Courses re: nature and gardening.
Oh how sweet to be buying your own place! I hope you let us know about your journey all along the way.
I'm re-creating my garden after a terrible person destroyed it over years.
Then the lantana came in thick and fast.
So it's a slow process for me. Sometimes sad and poignant knowing how it used to be.
But should I get to the bare basic soil... like ever lol.. then it's got patches of "clean slate" here and there to sculpt.
So just like any :fresh start", I'm doing things differently. Still incorporating the loyal natives, fruit and nut trees that survived under all that lantana but hoping for a peaceful place to look at.
Also rebuilding probably only one bath worm farm (I used to have 3)... and I am composting in tyres atm but will use recycled PVC pipe as worm towers to compost in. I've already made the worm towers. I'll also get my seaweed tea up and running soon. The weed tea is working a treat atm.
The chook shed is now a garden shed since foxes moved in to the neighbourhood. So I am looking forward to organising that space for my ease.
Tonight I saw my Isabella Grape vine leafing up again and thought it would be cute to espalier that around my garden shed. Why not lol.
I have to do things as cheaply as possible so if I can propagate plants I already have and from others and get plants for free then that's what I'm doing.
I'm so happy you love gardening too.
