"When they flower, that is the time to harvest tubers. I usually wait until the flowers start to die - tubers become sweeter that way. If you harvest prior to flowering, not as nice tasting."

"Hi Mary-Anne, I have some yacon if you would like it - I am about to harvest the tubers anytime now. Also have a smallish Krachai that I may be able to divide. I'm at Whiteside, so not too far away from you."

Karla Wally replied to Dave Riley's discussion micro bats anyone?
"We have a colony that lives beneath our pool - sometimes they even extend their home to roosting in our closed up pool umbrella in winter (we are guessing that they enjoy the extra warmth), just gives you a fright when you open it up in spring to…"

Hi Karla, one year ago you organized a GV at your place at Whiteside. One of many plants we discovered was Tiger grass. You indicated at that time that you may have suckers or root stock available of tiger grass. I am happy to dig myself if need be. Please let me know if you can help. Kind regards George

Fresh Local Provisions: Fresh Food, Local and Online

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.
