Subjects I would like to see in upcoming events.
1. Learn about eatable flowers and how to use them.
2. Learn about eatable weeds and how to use them.
This month was definitely the best month yet! Lots of firsts. I’ve started keeping a harvesting inventory. This month we harvested:
I really enjoyed everyone's company on the weekend at my garden visit and can't wait to go to Roger's. Sophie, just wanted to say your sweet potato was delicious!! Very sappy (stained a bread board) and not pretty (went a sort of dull grayish colour) but was really good and tasty. Smoother than the orange variety. I'm gonna try to grow some from cuttings of the skin but if not, I'd love some leaf cuttings.
Know how I was showing off the black sapote fruit…Continue
anyone badly effected by the storm? it was spectacular to watch it coming across the mountains - some gorgeous rainbows ( borrowed a friends photo - its looking towards our hill ) we had good rain - planted lots yesterday morning - sweet potatoes pepinos, more mulberry trees cannas maranta more melons and cucs - though…Continue
Dose anyone know anything about this movement, or has anyone been up to see how it is done. http://www.urbanfoodstreet.com/. It is located in Buderim.
I think I lost it.
A few weeks of influenza of whatever branding and the garden got away from me.
Went feral with my frequent absence from the garden.
Led by a carpet of chickweed my investment in ground covers took off and I had nasturtiums up to pussie's bow.
But I learnt that patience is its own reward and all annuals subside, even weeds.

It has been a big year for us in Ellen Grove and to be honest I couldn’t have done the hard yakka without Husband Graham and Member Darren. The Garden has undergone a lot of work and rearrangements due to the addition of a new Work Shed for Graham.…Continue
http://abc.net.au/news/2016-10-11/new-fruit-fly-trap-will-save-fresh fruit-crops-inventor-claims-... Read the article about this. I wonder how much it will be. Surely as it is a product of a respected Uni it should work. It would be a huge boon to not only Organic Gardeners but also the general public, as conventional farmers will be able to grow fruit, etc. without poisonous sprays and this will not only make the…Continue
Has anyone collected this free mulch and how is it made .When they make mulch they can add some very toxic substances that you would not want but because the levels in final product are low can still meet standards.
Last month, I ventured back out into my garden after a lengthy absence, not at all sure what I would find. I was delighted to find that most of my fruit trees survived, though some fared better than others.
(Funny enough, the Nasturtiums had gone completely feral so the yard didn’t look nearly as bad as it was because it was all covered with a layer of cheery orange flowers!)…
