Hi Chris. Turns out I can go to the seed savers on 17th (had the wrong date). Did you want to send along some of your excess Turmeric to share out with the group? Or come along with us?

Hi Christopher, I wonder if you could help Elaine with this?

Thank you so much for coming Chris.

Really sorry about the problems getting that palm out - thank you for perservering and getting it out for Nancy who has given it a good home.

I've refilled the hole with good garden soil and cow poo and can now relish getting hold of some new useful plant to go in there.

Glad you're rethinking the Lychee :D Maybe you'll be luckier than me getting some crop to eat before the fruit bat does.

Hope to see you in November, must have been a busy year - I miss you and your great practical advice!

Hi Chris
Some feedback re your lovely eggplants - the white one was actually not too old to eat, and the green ones were delicious! Both were tender and sweet, so they're the next ones I'll be growing - I bought some seeds off ebay (green, white and orange) so if you wanted to do some seed raising, I can give you some seeds. Elaine has also given me 2 very ripe white ones which I am keeping for seed.

Hi Chris, we missed you at my garden visit - hope everything is alright and look forward to seeing you at one soon.

Hi Chris, finally back from my holiday. I probably won't be able to find time to get out your way until after Christmas - maybe between Christmas and New Year? ... are you going away?

did I see you on the bridge this morning with quite a santa-ish long beard?
At 20:56 on October 12, 2009, Scarlett said…
ah good, you are still here, thought you'd gone missing (as I do myself occasionally!)

Hope you are feeling better soon, we missed you today - see you next time hopefully!

Hi Chris, you mentioned somewhere that coriander is prone to bolting - I recently read that it needs to be kept moist or it bolts so I am trying to water mine regularly and see if it works. I will also try digging in some water granules (when I find them lol) around the roots to help this.

Hi Chris, if you still have some stakes spare we can always use a few more. Thanks.

Hi Chris, I'd love to have a couple of tomato stakes if you have any spare? Thanks.

i think pigeons had been nesting in it. I think the mites prefer damp straw to dry - they can breed up in it better it seems . i think i saw this confirmed online somewhere when i was investigating them - like an end of season birds nest

Thanks Christopher, maybe will get you to point out a 'bud' for me at the visit. Will leave me more to spend on other stuff that you can't buy normally.

Hi Christopher
From memory you had ginger growing at your meeting... did you plant tubers from the supermarket/ greengrocer?
Not sure whether they are like potatoes and you are supposed to buy 'seed' ones or not...

Hi Chris, thanks for the choko and turmeric ~ I hope I will get some crops next season and will be my turn to share :)
