Winter pickings

"you pick them when they are just starting to soften and go a little yellow , then the calyx starts to come away from the stem - sort of stands up!  and let them ripen inside for up to 5 days - need to be very squishy to eat "

PawPaws to give away or trade

Hello Everyone, I have had to cut down a paw paw tree, and don’t want to waste the produce.  Due to the wet weather, Black spot developed and while there are marks on some fruit, still tasty and able to be used.  I am in the Aspley area, whenripetheyareambeautifulbeautifullsweet

Good Evening Cheryl, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). You sound like you will certainly enjoy BLF, we have many Verge Gardeners in the Group.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2021 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas. 

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions, I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field, you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me, and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF…..
