The Queensland Gardening Pages

Here's a cool web site (The Queensland Gardening Pages ) with a cool link to a veggie garden in Toowoomba.

Below is a bit of blurb from their Vegetable page where you'll find that really cool link.


You'll find plenty of general information about growing veggies on the internet and in books and gardening magazines. There can be problems, however, applying it to Qld conditions. Many beginners have surely been discouraged after relying on such information. This page will concentrate on issues likely to be particular interest to Qld gardeners, particularly those in the tropical and subtropical areas. Techniques for growing veggies in small spaces, pots and containers will also be of interest to many gardeners in this state.

Some of the big problems most Queenslanders to face when trying to grow fruit and vegetables:
- Extreme heat and sunlight intensity throughout warmer months
- Lack of well-defined seasons and lack of intense chilling in winter
- Drought and watering restrictions. Reliance by some on bore water.
- Poor native soils

There are two main approaches for Qld vegetable gardeners working towards a productive garden:
- Cultural techniques (e.g. winter cultivation instead of summer, provision of shade etc)
- Selection of suitable varieties, including species originating from tropical regions

First of all I would like to say superb blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't
mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in
getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing however it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or tips? Thank you!

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you've done a fantastic job with this.
Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.
Exceptional Blog!

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen
in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.

Exploring I noticed your web site book-marked as: Blogger:
My Veggie Garden. I am assuming you book-marked it yourself
and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets you a lot of
targeted traffic? I've been considering doing some social bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't sure if it would generate any positive results.
Appreciate it.

Hey! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin
that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

I'm starting a new internet website directory and was wondering if I can submit your blog? I'm trying to

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it
seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You definitely know what youre talking about, why
waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just
so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she
has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
