  • Thanks for the welcome Cathie.  Sorry it took me so long to get back, I've not been here.

  • Thanks so much Cathie. I have only been gardening a short time and really taken to it like a duck to water. I spent a few years overseas doing volunteer work and dragon fruit was my absolute favourite fruit. I was so happy when I came back and found out I could grow some of my own. I look forward to hearing about your varieties and what you have been doing in your garden. chat soon K

  • Thanks so much for being a GV Reporter Cathie! ... and sorry to hear about the posting issues.

    Myself and other GV reporters have most likely had similar fun with this at some time.

    With so many photos, we have split the report into 2 parts on 2 separate posts in many cases.

    I tend to keep the picture file sizes between 100K - 500K, and sometimes a little larger.

    And using a word processing program on the computer to prepare the report, followed by a cut & paste when ready can avoid loss resulting from potential site, Web, ISP or local networking issues.

  • Cathie - which retirement village do you work at? If you don't want to state publicly can you send me a PM (Private Message - top right of any page where it says Inbox).

    I also work in aged care and would be interested to know about your community garden in the retirement village.

  • Welcome to Brisbane Local Food Cathie :)

    Please get in touch via message or the discussion forum if you need help finding what you are after, or in using the site.

    Otherwise simply explore, join the conversations and enjoy.

    All the best and happy gardening
