Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

Looking forward to looking through the site and see what everyone is up to in their gardens and different enterprises.

Here in Killarney the main cropping from my Strawberries has finished and I will only have a few more to sell on and put into our jams but I will be kept busy cultivating the runners for the next lot of planting I want to do for 2019.

I had approximately a 1000 strawberry plants in 2018 and am hoping to add another 500. 

We have just had some welcome rain in the area yet still will be looking forward to more consistent rain as the summer rolls on. 

We are avid bottlers and preservers of our garden produce, as well as Kombucha tea aficionados.

We sell Kombucha tea starter kits from our "farm gate" stall along with our grain, gluten-free pancake mix, plants, seedlings and compost worm starter kits.

Hey Elaine

Where exactly do I find the " our 'For Sale etc' section " you mentioned I cannot seem to find

the relevant link to its whereabouts on the site?

Hey Susan

I have 3 varieties I tried to see what went best and the combination of QH sugarbaby, Lowana, and Redlands joy seem to work for me to give me a good blush and continuity that start August and I am still picking now though they are smaller and not as prolific as early in the season.

What varieties of strawberries are they?  I’m always looking for ones that grow well and later into the season.
