I must admit my first reaction was...what the! isn't that my pic? why has that person used my pic?? But then I realised what was going on lol. Happy for them to be "famous" :D
I had a similar, now funny, experience lately. One of the online garden sites is looking for pics for a calendar and I clean forgot I had sent some in. I followed their link to their FB page and there were my pics! I actually posted a comment saying "why are my pics here?" before remembering and deleting almost immediately. Unfortunately, they still ended up with the comment and sent me a testy little email asking if I wanted them removed lol.
I don't know how much longer we will get sufficient chill for any but bred-for-the-tropics stone fruit. Even my cassava and baby Saba nut wereleafless for only about 8 weeks this winter. The nights do not seem to be as cold, winter or summer as they were 30 years ago.
Thanks Scarlett! I've ended up at this site on several occasions when googling one thing or another. When it happened again last week thought it must be time to join. As warm as the last few Toowoomba winters have been, it 'almost' feels like I'm in Brisbane anyway.
Thanks Scarlett. The site was recommended by someone I met on another forum. I went to her place to pick up some raspberry runners and I got a free tour of the garden, some extra things and the web address for this site. Her name is Lissa, but I'm not sure of her online name.
I'm thinking not everyone will have the ability to print let alone in colour (logo).
Not everyone owns any ribbon - I know I don't - not worth a trip to the shop just for a bit of ribbon in the right colour.
Most folk own a name tag I'm thinking - I'll ask them to wear one.
And ask them to all post a recent pic of themselves so we can recognise each other visually.
Do you want to think about getting some "official" name tags made available for a small price? Won't be in time for this event but could be useful in the future. Your site is pretty popular and famous now :)
Thanks for the welcome Scarlett. I've never enjoyed gardening however my friend has inspired me with his permaculture farm out past Uki near Mt Warning. He's also replicated a smaller version as his home in Bardon with pineapples and other edibles growing out on the footpath. I think I've done more planting in the last two weeks than I've done in the last 20 years!
Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion. It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
