Starting to Flower

7-1-17 sounds good!
Around 17 flowers from buds to just-opened last night.
All on 2 red-fleshed DF plants. Plants survived the cold wet winter but with a yellow fungus on some of the stems. Pruned of the worst affected then painted on Biodynamic Tree Paste. Infection seems to be halted.
Some sun-burn on the stems, the plants face west. Tried 50pc shadecloth but the plants hated it and seem to prefer to weather the sunburn. Weird for tropical rain-forest plants.

Tasty feats to look forward to.

Something wonderful to look forward to :)

Karla's plants are also blooming. The plant seems to be a bit different from the one I had and I haven't gone down the hill at night time to check out the flowers when they're open. Not sure if they are setting fruit or not.

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.


What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
