THERE'S a plethora of fabulous gardening resources online.
One of the best is the monthly newsletter from the good folk at Sustainable Gardening Australia.
Plus SGA has developed four informative booklets for home gardeners: Home Harvest, Sustainable Gardening, Waterwise Gardening and Gardening Self Audit.
They have other excellent resources so you can plan your spring planting and beyond on those days it's too wet and cold to pull on the gumboots and dig.
One off-line choice to get some hens.
They are less trouble than you think, provide gorgeous eggs, manure for the compost bins, eat bugs, provide an amazing way to de-stress because they are so hilarious and will happily turn over an old veggie bed to prepare for the next planting.
Now it's winter it's a great time to plan your new chook run, hutch and investigate what type of chickens to keep.
