My Sourdough Ciabatta Journey

Posted on July 3, 2011 at 15:50 10 Comments

Hi Joanne, I've asked the same question myself I've visited their garden at Heronswood, and had lunch at their cafe ~ it was nice.. but I didn't join in their membership because I don't think I will be able to take much advantage of it at the moment...

Anyways, I dumped all my worms into the compost bin coz I kept forgetting to feed them, and my parents don't like worms... Costa just set up worm farms & compost bin at the backyard make over part of his program you can watch it at SBS website. Also recommend you to download the Gardening Australia podcast from ABC ~ if you don't have enough bandwidth.. I've got last couple years downloaded....

Ooh.. huge rocks are hard to move... they make nice garden features though.. let me know if you need any seeds, or want any cuttings or root division from anything you saw...
I saw citrus gall wasps' bumps on my pumelo tree yesterday, but probably will wait till I can clear my pumpkin vines to get better access to deal with them..... I so wanted to remove those pumpkin vines.. but there's still pumpkins developing and I can't bear to rip them out... *sigh*
