Fish & Food Even In One Of The Driest Climates In Australia

IMG_0938

Ashley and Ronnie Steed are a couple of pioneers when it comes to food production in a semi-arid environment.

They have spent the best part of the last decade or more perfecting their veggie patch, orchard and most recently; their aquaponics set up. Not only are they supplying their own healthy and delicious food from their 50x50m residential mineral claim on the opalfields at Lightning Ridge, but they are now also growing fish for their table – proving just about anything is possible if you create the intention and manage your conditions.

Ronnie and Ashley have a well established orchard

But that is what I love about it.

We have so many self sown broccoli that I never got around to transplanting that are merrily growing delicious and nutritious little broccoli. We have rows and rows of splendid Asian greens that I can barely keep up with and radishes the size of enormous potatoes! The nasturtium, as always, takes over

Fat bastards for breakfast

Did you know that one of the popular varieties of asparagus are called Fat Bastards? Funny I know, but when you see them grow, you realise why…they really are fat!

Anyway, the point is, that I spent some time in the garden last week and one of my jobs was to prune the asparagus…which I have to say, was a pretty nerve wracking experience!

I am not sure how much you know about asparagus, but lets just say it is a lesson in delayed gratification as it is not until year 3 that you are really meant to start harvesting
