Growing local

Hi all,

It's been a while since I posted on here, although I used to be quite active back in the day. It was a fair while ago, but recently enough that the jaboticaba plants that come from seeds Lissa gave me still haven't started producing fruit. (I feel like we could come up with a whole new way of measuring time based on our triumphs and travails in gardening in SEQ - eg. How long ago did I graduate from uni? Long enough for me to get right into growing yacon and then lose interest in it.)

Anyway, I've been growing Redland Joy strawberries for a few seasons now and they're getting quite reliable and productive. However, the production period (July to December) pretty much coincides with the cheapest strawberries for sale in the shops. Does anyone here grow strawberries that fruit in summer and autumn? Can you recommend varieties that will do that? My research suggests "Everberry" and "Temptation" as two possible varieties. Has anyone grown these and got late season crops?

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
