Re: OT-CHAT:Garden in progress


Maybe you all should come here to the Adelaide Hills. A 4-5 Acre block with
a nice house will cost about $Aust250-300,000. A 5 acre block about
$Aust100,000  and a half to third acre about $30,000. We can garden all year
round, have real winters (but no snow) and a nice baking summer for the
irises (but it cools down at night in summer so you can sleep.) and nice
loamy soils.
