April 3, 2010 - First blog ever

Posted on April 3, 2010 at 16:36 6 Comments

Here goes, my very first blog!
This is going to be my way of keeping track of everything in my garden. Something I have not been very good at up to this point.

Last Sunday (28 March 2010) was a good day in the…

Hi Trinette, how's your new place going??

Hehe, sometimes I think of giving up uni and just studying horticulture instead and spending all my time in the garden with my chickens. : )

Hi Trinette, I think I only have one survived.. I am preparing a mini banana and paw paw circle and thinking of transplanting the surviving one there next weekend... I would like to get a couple more dwarf ones for the circle but I am not sure whether I should wait till spring, or do it now ^^... so much to do in the garden, a few hours on the weekend is not enough!!!

Hi Trinette, just wondering how your banana pups are growing? I think only one of my three is growing new leaves... but they are still in a temporary position...

Oh no, I can't believe you'll be away :( You will have to do a blog now to tell me all about how your seeds are coming along - nothing happening here yet... think I'll have to plant with the baby hothouse - bother what a waste of seeds!

Glad you had a good time - did you end up going to the expo.. and if so was there enough time to see anything - hopefully I will get there one year surely!

I did some planting on Sunday too, but not very much in the scheme of things - still have heaps of empty beds but am waiting for the seeds I planted the week before to come up. If they don't by this weekend I will have to make mini greenhouses and plant them directly.

I can't comment on your blog - it's doing something weird, it thinks I want to flag it, not comment on it? ning problems - so i'll be here instead
those expensive designer bags just have a twist tie incorporated in the top of them - maybe just some garbage bag ties would do the trick nicely? also maybe use waxed kitchen paper - it would be water resistant (again this is basically what the designer ones are made of - you might need to be good at origami though)

You are most welcome, Trinette :-) My pleasure and enjoy that garlic! :-)

Hi Trinette, I managed to scab some orange and red habanero chili seeds from a lovely man on whirlpool forum for us! I will give you them at your meeting on Sunday :)

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
