Cooma Community Garden

One of the biggest challenges of growing food in this climate is the short growing season. Unlike much of Australia we have four distinct seasons with the best one for growing food, summer, being relatively short. Despite this, with careful planning and a protected location it is possible to extend the season and create beautiful productive gardens.

These pictures were taken a couple of months ago at the height of their productivity.

And this here was my addition to an art installation we did. I was pregnant at the time, thus the little pink egg representing Evie :)

Great to see such luscious beds in Cooma. We may have a short growing season, but it's a damn sight better than the growing season in Canada and much of northern Europe, so I think we can do just fine :D
