Growing local

A gift of love bears fruit! A few years ago I gave my Rozie a ruby grapefruit tree because I knew she loved the fruit. This year we have 6 or 7 on board. They are beautifully juicy.

Looks real nice Andy.  I've got to go and pick mine - only 3 this year but since I only planted 2 yrs ago, not complaining.  I don't like them to eat but LOVE them as a juice.

Rozie and I have officially stored that under "U" for useful.  It'll get a try for sure.

Weirdly, ruby Grapefruit goes well with Chicken, even better than Lemon.

I hate the buggers Elaine.  I had a bit and it was juicy.  Rozie loved it.  Apparently they are perfect.

And sweeter than the usual yellow Grapefruit? I'm surprised that they have fruited for you. So much for the conventional theory that citrus and especially the red-fruited ones need less humidity and more cold than we have here.

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.)

The Vetiver Community Project 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.
