March might be the official start of autumn, but in this hot land of ours, the challenges of summer continue unabated for many gardeners. As milder conditions push in, though, it does spark a feeling of wanting to ‘get into it’. That, of course, is fine if you still have a garden to ‘get into’. So many people have lost so much, while others are only just hanging on, trying to save trees and special plants through an unrelenting drought.

If you only have a small outdoor area, such as a patio, courtyard or balcony, a great way to dispose of organic kitchen waste while growing vegetables is the updated Composta – a worm farm and garden in one. The central canister contains the worms, and is where you put food scraps, while the outer section is for growing herbs, leafy vegies, strawberries or flowers, which receive nutrients directly from compost produced by the worms. Unlike regular worm farms, it can be placed in the sun, as the garden protects the worms from the heat. composta.myshopify.com Okay, so it’s not the kind of item you’d normally see here, but we love this glimpse of a future where everyday items go into our compost bins, not landfill.
