"Hey Cres I'm interested in how your Perlite as the bottom layer wicking medium has worked out. Has the Perlite degraded/turned into dust or have you had any problems with blockages down there? I'm considering using it instead of the usual…"

"I can certainly reuse the pots. They just looked so new I could tell you had parted with $ for them and might want them back. I'll have a look at your recipe links next. I'm eating the Nopales pretty regularly, mostly with bacon and eggs…"

"Great to hear they're coming along well. The leaves will get soft and very droopy when they need a water but otherwise they grow pretty quick hey? And the San Marzano? Would you use the pots at all? We picked up 100 from a nursery last week so…"

"Hey how's those Tomatillo and Tomato plants going Lissa? Keeping an eye out for any bugs? Do they have the little latterns/husks going (ie. fruited)?"

Craig Hogan replied to Fisher's discussion Seedling swap
"Sounds like a deal. I'll give the tomatillos another go, they are tasty and I need to do some research on organic pest control. It's a bit of an open garden for pests at the moment and I'm getting increasingly annoyed at the attacks!"

Fisher replied to Fisher's discussion Seedling swap
"The Radish, Beets and Carrots all sound good to me. So the baby Marzano's a maybe a couple of weeks away, what if I drop you a message when they're good to go? How does 3 of them sound? Also are you interested in some Tomatillo's?…"

Craig Hogan replied to Fisher's discussion Seedling swap

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.
