Growing local

An update of an update ...

And in response to Ania's photo ...

Taken just now:

A range of developing fruit from a couple of days ago pollination to some weeks ago:

Pollinated only a few days ago - these fruit are hard, too hard to squeeze:

This one is yellowing and I don't expect it to develop:

This one just withered - pic taken a few days ago - I've since pulled it off and cut it across - it was just spongy and going brown inside:

And indeed Dragon Fruit do get sunburned not that it's stopped the plant from flowering. The Dragon Fruit in another spot (north-south axis) in the same west-facing front yard are not sunburned at all. The sunburn happened on an east-west axis (don't know why that's significant, but the differences couldn't be greater):

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.


What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
