Italian Fryers Capsicum

Does any one else grow these? They have grown well over the summer and develop quite fast compared to the usual bell types. which means that I don't get a lot of fruit fly in them. The flesh is not as thick as bell types. I have a recipe for a…

"Not only is the red capsicum dip very delicious, the colour is vibrant! The small round dish on the right contains the red capsicum dip, and on the left is a grilled eggplant dip with tahini on top. "

SAD - but things are looking up!

Posted on April 7, 2019 at 9:15 7 Comments

Back to the world of the living!

 

My summer hibernation is now over, the weather is so much kinder, and I am able to get about outside without frying in the horrible hot sun. The jobs to do outside are many and varied but at least I have some enthusiasm back, which enables me to get stuck in.

My cousin's wife in the UK suffers from SAD, (Seasonal Affective Disorder) - which is caused by a lack of sun in the northern hemisphere. Here we get far too much sun, and while I…

Garlic for the year!!

Everybody duck when she speaks

So, Lettuce get us to the church by half past two

and if you like Beetroot I'll be true to you

There is more but I'll spare you, I…

Roger's May report- Growing anti Inflammatory plants , etc.

Posted on May 15, 2018 at 8:18 10 Comments

With the weather now much more bearable, it is becoming a real pleasure to get out in the garden and come out of summer hibernation. A holiday in Tasmania in late summer saw us enjoy a few weeks of much cooler weather, but on return, it had obviously rained quite a bit while we were away and the rampant growth everywhere has/is taking a lot of work to get under control again.

The weedy TRAD has grown like Topsy and covers a lot of ground. It will take all of the cooler months to clear…
