Event Description

I've picked an early start as it's a hot time of the year.
Elaine has agreed to give a demo on tomato growing/care :)

Can't seem to save the map from google or whereis but there's a link and you can put in the address yourself (unless someone can explain where I'm going wrong).

Thanks Elaine - some are now soaking.

Winged Beans? The big brown ones with the ruffled edges? They are from Addy. Seeds need pre-soaking. Can eat the pods when they are very young.

What was the name of those bean seeds given out on the day again Chris (or anyone)? The ones in the hard pods.

Sounds like a great garden visit ~ Sorry couldn't turn up, it's been a hectic week for me... I didn't remember we have a garden visit until late afternoon yesterday ^^...  oh well, hopefully I will make it to the next one.. I've missed two or three in a row already!

Thank you everyone for coming :) what a good turn out!

And the weather was kind to us (a little bit of overcast and drizzle might have made life easier for Chris digging out that palm - well done Chris and thank you - Nancy has given it a new home so you did a very good deed).

Great food, good conversation, terrific tom growing demo from Elaine, wonderful plants and seeds to share.

Hopefully your cuttings will take. If anyone has failures let me know and I'll strike some things for you. I'll aim to get more raspberry canes growing to share also.

Ah Donna lol. Lots of selective photography goes on! I remove the failures from the garden and you just don't get to see them.

Thanks for showing us your wonderful gardens Lissa!  And for the cuttings / plants / seeds etc.  I always seem to get way more than I give.  :)

Doh, just remembered I took my camera... bit late now ;)

Thanks Lissa, your garden is everything the photos said it would be - no selective photography there!  Thanks to everyone for the goodies - Elaine the tommy toe and diary, Lissa the Passionfruit and cuttings and Addy and Christopher for the winged beans and tumeric :)
