Setting up

I have finally set up a possum exclusion area and wanting to make the most of it. Ideas on what is ideal to produce in Brisbane is appreciated. Used an old dog cage and have a raised bed and a bath tub based wicking bed. But I am new to BNE and would appreciate some help. Preference is for things that are multiple harvest and not too difficult to grow.See More

Pickled FauPers (Faux Capers)

Tasted my latest experiment today- Pickled Nasturtium buds. I was sold on the idea that they would taste somewhat like capers...and they did. Nice and peppery but with a good crunch.

Good Afternoon Paul, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). I am sure you will find lots of info on Bees, Recycling and Innovative Ideas for the new gardens you are planning to build.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2017 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different 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.

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…..
