Hello, Does anyone know where a good place is to get horse manure (or cow) on the Redcliffe Peninsula?  (Not the ones on Victoria Ave / Knight St - they are disgusting).Thanks!Tracy. Continue

"Hi Lissa, I was wondering if you're going to save any seeds from that plant?  It looks the eggplant I used to grow, but forgot to save seeds from last year.  All other eggplants I've grown have paled in comparison, so if you are…"

Starting over (kind of)

Posted on December 7, 2010 at 21:38 3 Comments



I’ve never blogged before. I figure it might be a good way to keep track of what I’m doing with my veggie beds each season, since I seem to be rubbish at keeping notes as I go. So, this might be a good time to start as my beds are going to have a rest while we are away for a month, then I’ll be starting…

Yes Tracy,

It was lovely to meet you and have a chat. So many people are striving for sustainability. There are so many aspects to our lifestyles. I hope you can come and visit us some time. Also we are happy to drive to visit your family too. We bought a hybrid, still not sure if it is really helping the planet...but it is cheaper to run that is for sure. I do quite a lot of driving, which is one thing I need to learn to replace with walking more. Driving the car is my most difficult challenge in sustainability.

Hello Tracy
I had to make a new banner cos I lost the old photos. I've stolen your magnificent tomatoes pick for it - I hope that's ok
cheers Scarlett

Thanks for that Tracy. I didn't get around to plant the cucumber yet, will do it this weekend. I've tried planting the corns you gave me 3 weeks ago, but unfortunately only 2 came up ^^ ... guess you can't keep corn seeds long at all so I better use up all the corn seeds I bought this season ^^ Hope to see u again this Sunday :)

Hi Tracy, I got a few cucumber seeds off you at the recent garden visit, but I didn't bring a pen and forgot the name of the cucumber... would you mind telling me the name of the cucumber seed I got please? Thanks..

My mum just found this site searching for nematodes as well - I wonder if Donna tagged it especially well, or if it's just lucky?

Well hopefully your future cucumbers will be marvellous :)
