Hello there :)
I am an Irish native, now living in QLD. I have a thriving veggie garden which consists of; Cauliflower, Radishes, Red, Brown and Spring Onions, Broccoli, Snow peas, Garlic, Cucumbers, Celery, Peppers, Tomatoes & Herbs.
My partner is an Ex Chef and I am just as passionate about food. We especially enjoy Asian cuisine. I hope to plant a variety of Asian veggies soon. As we have a relatively small garden and are renting, so all our veg is bound to pots. I have always been rather successful planting this way.
One day when we own our own house I hope to have a large Veggie garden and chickens, so we can live relatively self sufficient.
Also any tips regarding Worm Farms would be helpful as I plan on investing in a small one soon.
Look forward to learning new ways of gardening and tips from all you garden guru's :)
I am interested in:
Harvesting Veggies in order to maximize the crop
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
What I am looking for:
Information, Community Involvement, Gardening Help
Good Afternoon Rosalie, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). What a Beautiful part of the world you come from. You will find plenty of information on the site about plantings in different Seasons, I hope these will be of help in your decision of plantings..
Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2017 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. We actually have a Garden Visit on this Sunday 5th March, with a talk on Wicking Beds which you may find of interest. 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…..
