This week in the garden

Picked the first pineapple of the year yesterday - no photo cos I cut it up straight away - couldn't wait to try it. It was OK, but I think I jumped the gun a bit - not as sweet as they usually are, and the top quarter was still pale yellow, not golden. I'll leave the next one on a bit longer. Pineapples are going in all over the garden in odd spots - and I've got a lot of odd spots in my garden!

The Zucchinis are finished, and I'm letting the tromboncino go to seed now - sorry,…

The way of the stick.

Spending time in the patch can be inspirational. Look and you shall see...

Worst of all, look and plan.

Does this obsession ever stop?

When you think the greenery is 'just so' you have to maybe do this or that.

The plants are a collective that maybe can do without you, but you can't help…

COME RAID MY GARDEN, MOVING!

Hello friends, long time no see!

I’ve been busy these last months searching for a new house, and it seems like I’ve found the perfect one. We are selling up to secure it, and as such there’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to raid my current garden and just, take WHATEVER you want. Literally. From our current garden in Kallangur.



I have a large number of bathtub wicking tubs set up, most with plants including mature raspberry, Kankong, Sweet Potato to name a few,…

Captains Log: January 2021. 27.1300° S, 153.0520° E Beam me up. (Fun with Dragon fruit, Chaya, Shishito, Radishes, Tomatillos, Jeruslaem Artichokes and Winged Beans to bravely go into my stomach.)

The year past in review.

Highlights both ecological and gastronomical.

  1. Dragon Fruit Salsa: For me this is the most delicious way to partake of the exotic looking pitaya. I've planted Dragon fruits all over the place. Mine clamber over chook pens, prickly pear and frangipani alike. Now the…

Jan 2021 - I've been a bit slack with blogging.

Hi all, 

I'm sorry I've been absent from blogging with any regularity lately.  My husband was ill for a while and then holidays happened and as usual it all got away from me.  Luckily, the rain has been kind and my garden is not looking to bad.   Though, my garden still doesn't grow much in the way of veg over summer.  

Here is what I harvested today - these carrots are way overdue for harvest and were planted back in July so I don't really count them as a…

Zucchinis and Tromboncinos

This year Zucchinis and Tromboncinos have been really successful for me. 

I put down the zucchini success to tying up the vines to 8-foot star pickets driven well into the ground. Never thought to do this until someone on  BLF - Dave, I think it was, thank you - posted up a link to a zucchini grower in the US who did this, and who also advocated taking…

It lives!

I have seen a few Summers here. They come and go while the plants respond to the weather.

But this time around...

I am overwhelmed by the verdant growth. I've had to hack my way along the paths to get from A to…
