Hi Wendy, that's exactly the reason why I don't want to move :-( It takes such a long time and effort to get your garden to a particular stage, I couldn't bring myself to abandon it, although I would really love to move to a bigger block. Hope you will enjoy the group and hope to meet you at the next crop swap. Even if you haven't got anything yet to swap, come along anyway. It's always a great morning with loads of information shared among members.
