I wanted to test whether cinnamon did actually deter ants in the garden. While it's not a miracle cure, I think you'll see it works.

"I reckon we may well rename the Garden Visits.  I thnk they are going to become "Crafting and Crop Shares" as in, more focussed on practical skills like canning, baking, cheese making, make a cheap wicking bed etc.  "

  • Thank you, Andrew. I'm looking forward to learning and sharing.

  • Thank you. I am very happy to join the Brisbane Local Food Community. What a impressive homestead you have!
  • Hello Andrew, thanks for the warm welcome. I hope they got something out of it. It's only early days for us, a lot more sustainable food systems and water harvesting elements will be added.

  • I don't post videos, I just have an account that I use to comment on Doug's channel.

  • Thanks for the welcome Andrew!

  • Thanks mate just let me know if you need any plants
