Tromboncini on the move

"I think this is fabulous only wish I had a line to do a similar thing. How is your Tromboncino going after the rain. I hope you aren't getting the terrible winds we are having today."

Tromboncini on the move

"I find that cutting the vines back or picking up and relocating the vines is OK management.  A very sturdy plant -- but  easy to control with a pair of scissors. When yellowish the fruits keep well -- like pumpkins.Cut it back a bit and it…"

Tromboncini on the move

"I will give this plant a go again one day as you've all had such success. The one time I did plant it I think it was too shaded. My clothesline gets used this way too lol. I hang washing on the back porch so the actual clothesline downstairs…"

Tromboncini on the move

"The vine gets watered a couple of times a week in this warm dry weather, Phil. It is in a new part of the garden, only just redeemed from lawn, so the soil there isn't as good as in the older part of the garden, and I have also planted a couple…"

"What a great use for a clothes line Barbara! Your vine is looking lush and vigorous despite the changing of the seasons (well its happening slowly). Are you watering it much?"

"You've added it OK Barbara, just need to edit the title. Tromboncini are amazing."

Barbara Tealby replied to Andrew Cumberland's discussion BLF could appear at the RNA Show in Brisbane 2016! in the group BLF Futures
"I like Kathryn's idea of showcasing the site on a computer. Not keen myself on staffing the stall, having done more than my share of that sort of the thing in a past life, but happy for others to do it if they would enjoy it. "

Profile Information

About me:
I live on a 900sq m block. The house is biggish, as we had a big family, most of whom have left home. The gardens were more or less tacked on by the previous owners after the house and various landscaping features were finished, so no chance to do the permaculture thing, but gradually a food garden is taking shape. My background is in revegetation, volunteer management, and growing and selling local native plants, but I am a total convert to the idea of producing as much of our own food as possible. Fruit trees - in ground and in pots - are a particular enthusiasm, and I like to preserve my own and purchased produce.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
Rode-Chermside garden club
I am interested in:
Permaculture, growing my own food, preserving the produce. I would like to see other peoples' gardens, and
join in discussions to learn as much as possible about the ins and outs of growing food. Happy to share bits and pieces of whatever I've got growing, and whatever knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
Community Involvement
What I am looking for:
