Growing local

I am trying to grow in sugar cane bales. I stacked them together and then spread home made compost on top to give my seedlings something to start growing on. However, as I only use cold compost all the seeds from the compost have come up as well, so I have lots of cherry toms, pumpkins, etc intermingled with my Broccoli, Red Cabbage, and Celeriac seedlings. Any one wanting tomato and pumpkins seedlings are invited to come and get them!

Also, here is one of my Black Krim Tomatoes, grown in an old bulk oil plastic container. Looking good. These are a very tasty type which I fully recommend.

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.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
