    growing veg in Perth

    friend of ours gave me some raspberry canes last year they did really well lots of smal fruit just forming until the gold finched decended we were left with one raspberry :biglaugh:, I suppose there is always something around to nick your grub , I tend to collect the slugs at night and feed them to the hens for breakfast they love them . Thanks for the forum site I will have a look on there are there any predators for the hens as in the UK with the foxes ? I will have to find a friedly riding school to get some muck from to improve the sandy soil Im sure they would like to get rid of some of it .

Thanks Bitzy

    worry over selling the famiy home

    Thanks Pint pot for you reply , Our house is a large old one not apparently ideal for renting although it is a fantastic solid old place . We have spent years renovating it and I suppose we will have to drop the price eventually but reluctantly Ideally we would take a small drop , sell the house , get over to WA and start earning the AU$ as soon as possible . Fingers crossed and well done for selling your house at least some houses are selling .

    worry over selling the famiy home

    Thanks for the feed back guys sounds like we are all up the same creek , our house is a big old police house really beautiful and up for sale for a fairly high price , the estate agent has said renting would not be a option as people wouldnt want to pay the fee , We have been told we have to make first entry by September 2012 so not in a blind pannick yet just need to get rid so that we can get off like you all . good luck to you all on your selling .
  7. Hi Guys , we have just had the best news Visa granted for western Aus yey !!!! It seems to have been a real slog with one thing or another , At first we applied for Canberra only to have the rug pulled from under our feet by them wanting evidence of funds up front, Like most people we have money tied up in property but not in cash . However Emigrating Solutions quickly sorted us a application for W/A and within 4 days we had the sponsorship approved . My main concern now is selling the family home it has been up for sale for 3months and no-one has even been over the threshold Agghhh . I no there must be many worrying about the same thing but does anyone have any advice or tips . We have come so far and wont be scuppered at the last hurdle . Thanks Bitzy
