25.04.15 POTATO GROWING WITH LYLE AT SANDGATE COMMUNITY GARDEN
Big thank you to Lyle (Betts) from the SCG for providing a potato growing workshop for our members, though we did have a couple of ring in's from BOGI in the form of Ed and Louise. Always good when other groups can join us.
What an excellent, no nonsense approach Lyle has to growing spuds.
With Autumn nearly upon us, I am trying to seriously get my garden beds going. I had hoped to get a lot more done this weekend but with the torrential downpours interspersed with sunshine and extreme humidity, it has been more of a labour than a labour of love. Everything I have planted previously is just taking off though, so that is good.
My cucumber seedling (continental by Floriana) has got about 4 fruit this size and is absolutely loaded with…Continue

Since I haven't explained this DIY before, this is the rig I use to ferment vegetables. Now on display for the very first time.
Over the past 18 months the program has consolidated as the…Continue
At the January GV at Lissa's we had a guest speaker Ismail Moola, from Nutri-Organics. It was decided that those who purchased his Potting/Garden Medium might like to do a comparison test with the view to seeing which product performs best and fruits with a better tasting product.
It would be good if we could all keep a photo diary here to show the performance results. It would also help if we could each write a little piece about the performance/fertilizing products and methods…Continue
Today's the day … out they came! Twenty-four in and 24 out!
Reading the other posts on this season's Garlic, I reckon I left them in the ground a week or two too long. Joseph I cannot remember them splitting; 'senior moments' reign supreme at times. But you are right, there is an optimum time to pull them. Next year.
The bed is a wicking bed (surprise!) in full sun all day and the second year I've grown Garlic in a wicking bed. Just not the same physical bed. It was under…Continue

I'm a list maker.
I like to gather information together in one spot so I don't have to keep hunting it down or scratch my head wondering where I read something and not being able to find it again. And I like to share, so please feel free to use this list of links or recommend more sites to be added as it's a continuous work in progress.
It is up to you to decide if you wish to deal with any of the companies, this is not a recommendation,…Continue
Lissa and I joined quite a crowd to listen to Graham Sait expound at length on the need for and benefits of Humus (and although tasty, not the Chick Pea Hummus ;-)) See this event: http://brisbanelocalfood.ning.com/events/how-humus-can-save-the-world
Not certain of Graham's academic background but he has the gift of making complex ideas and practices plain and clear to we ordinary…

I figure I look like everything at my place has stalled in the last month. Well, that's not really true - I've been flat out like a lizard drinkin'. Here's a quick update on what I've been doing:
Garden: is going really well. Had two solid meals from my snow peas, the rainbow silverbeet has provided a pie and several stir fries, I have a massive kumquat harvest due in a week or two and things like shallots are going well. Lissa and Elaine's beans are about to…Continue
Well, after all this time we have found a lovely acreage propoerty. That means that our home and garden in Wishart is on the market. Lots of people from the workshops and garden visits asked to be told if i ever sold the house, cos they'd love a ready made organic garden. Well, this is your chance.
Here is the link. The price is somewhat negotiable. You'll love 168 + different edible and useful plants in the garden with a whole vegie patch ready to harvest in the coming months. We…Continue
