Plants (no Zombies)

Well it is spring and Floriade is on. This festival of the flower attracts thousands of visitors who flock to see amazing floral displays featuring over a million flowering bulbs. Nice if you like that girly stuff.

I go because there is always some cool environmental and sustainable gardening displays. This year is not exception and I discovered a few useful gardening ideas that may prove handy when the zombies arise and we have to grow our own food.

There was an absence of zombies at Floriade although I did see a blood splattered gnome. However I suspect it was a vampire.

A little thing I like to think of as Bogan Landscaping. What better use for all those abandoned cars when the petrol runs out. They make great mini greenhouses as well as decorative lawn ornaments.

Utes are even better and if it still works you can take your garden with you if you need to flee the zombies. 


Of course if you are on a budget wheelbarrows may be an option.

This may look like a chook pen but it isn't. It is a  integrated small livestock production unit. Look closely - see the difference?

Bathtub aquaponics, the latest trend in closed cycled food production.  A cross between hydroponics and aquaculture. The fish urinate in the water and you it to feed the plants with it. Plants and fish are happy and your salad tastes funny. This one was powdered by three small goldfish.

 A cute little veggie garden and small chook pen. Think of it as an all you can eat salad bar.

Vertical gardens are a great way to maximise your growing space.  Just be carefully as zombies and possums will use them to climb up and run across on your roof at 3.00 o'clock in the morning.

Floriade had a lot of what looked like giant cookies cutters around the place. These sculptures light up at night but I think they will make great decoys for zombies.

Bite off more salad than you can chew
