Growing local

This tomato plant came out of the gravel. I'm not usually one to fight that, so I thought, Meh. Let's see what you got! This is just about the only thing not frying in the sun right now. One determined plant it is.

No wonder they first grew as weeds in the cornfields of the Maya.

I have toms cooking inside their own skins right now.  Crazy stuff.

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.
