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…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
