"UPDATE I hope that Moringa isn't poisonous to dogs! Let's see if Moringa's legendary resilience holds true. Thank you for the heads up about Kumbartcho. What an awesome place! My wife and I walked away with 6 Midyim Berries. What…"

"Having said that about Moringa stems  I need to point out that the most neglected kitchen tool is a one essential Korean implement: a pair of scissors. They even use them for BBQ meats. All Korean grocers stock awesome pairs of these…"

"Further on Moringa... It annoys me that the leaves are so hard to strip off when the stems are fresh. A Katuk stem, in comparison, is pot supplying in no time. Great flavour too. I found that if you leave a Moringa stem for a day after…"

"Thank you Gayle for providing the correct name. I had checked their catalogue but of course I was looking for Midgen. Thanks Dave. I didn't know they were native to the Moreton Bay Region. Hopefully it takes off in Lawnton! My fingers are…"

"Me and trees! What can I say? Sandy soil and the aquifers 5 metres down. But I do have a couple of Moringas which refuse to thrive. Took any number of cuttings that took off but few sustained themselves in the dirt. One of the conundrums. Don't…"

"Hit one of the native nurseries like Komartcho.  You can get them for less than $2 per plant. "

"Don't feel bad about getting Midyim from the nursery.  They don't just drop out the sky mate.  LOL.  Now you have three, you might well be able to get seed and help spread the love.  Firstly, around your own yard and…"

"In my experience, those beds breed mate.  Once you have one, the damn things start popping up all over the place.  "

Garden Update

Sorry for the sparse update. I've been having a devil of a time connecting my phone to my computer to share pictures. There's been more computer issues than that but that's computers in current year.I filled my Birdies raised bed garden with soil and mixed in fertilizer on the advice from nursery staff. I *may* not have mixed it in well enough. Fingers crossed. Plants consist of Roma Tomato, Corn, Cucumber, Rosemary and Lavender (to keep fleas, ticks, flies, Mosquitoes and Moths away). Super…See More

Spineless Prickly Pear

"Thanks for that info Dave. Don't worry about me spreading them. Last thing I want to do is damage our lovely state. Also, I'm not much of a gardener so I'm trying stuff in my back yard where I can keep an eye on what's going…"

"Blackberry Nightshade (solanum nigrum) Identified to my satisfaction in my weed patch. If I don't post in the future it's because I stuffed up LOL. The berries are tiny little guys aren't they? Interesting taste. The description of a…"
