Anyone know the best way of cooking Okra?  If anyone attending the Seedsavers at Beelarong has a favourite recipe, please bring it along.

Also interested in ways to use choko. Thanks.

Joeseph I will try and separate a comfrey for you, it grows from from bits of root so shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for organising this. I'd like to go to have a look. It's not far from my house. Looking forward to it.

Would anyone have some comfrey root or seed to spare? I'm happy to trade with seeds I have at this time, which are mostly okra, jicama, chinese mustard, flowering cabbage and snake bean. I also have some snowpea seeds I harvested in Oct last year. They're just run-of-the-mill snowpeas but they seem to germinate better than the store bought seeds and the plants are more vigourous.

I do alot of potting and having troubles with seeds growing to full potential also need to learn a bit about pests and soils . See u all there!

That sounds great Paul, I have found that germination is a tricky business even with very fresh seeds sometimes. 

I've also read that some seeds are supposed to be better after 5 years.  Mention it as you share them and people can choose whether they want to take them or not - my experience is that people always love a freebie!

I know it's a seed saving thing but I was wondering, I have an excess of seeds, mostly Edens and was thinking of bringing some along to share around, they are all less than 12 months old and have been kept in a 'fridge.
