Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

You know how it is. You go to the local IGA for some milk and you leave with an unusual variety of seeds that you've never heard of. 

We eat a lot of eggplant and I seem to have great success with them (fingers crossed). I'll wait a few more weeks and then germinate a few to start some seedlings. Looking forward to seeing what results.

We go to IGA for baranbah milk as well! Those eggplants look strange.

I had one plant gifted to me by Rob Collings who was a member here.  I'll be really interested to see if you can get seedlings Fiona.  

Time will tell.

Yes, I had one from BLF too - very hardy and pretty prolific but the skin was a little thick from memory compared to the purple type. Enjoy!

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.)
