I live in the Mid Blue Mountains NSW on a 1200sm block. My family started our journey to try and make our home and lives more self sufficient around September 2008. We keep chickens, have a worm compost farm, raised vegatable gardens. We have tried to select a wide variety of fruit trees keeping in mind our climate, personal tastes, nutrition value and limited time with 3 small children (but also involving them). Daleys has been such a valuable source of trees, plants and information on how to grow them.
