Andrew Cumberland commented on Dave Riley's blog post Surviving Inflation by Growing Your Own Food
"I agree.  What interests me is that after 10 years or more I have changed my diet completely.  Chokos are actually appealing now.  Tromboncinos when picked green are a great zucchini.  I don't like them as a squash.  I remember thinking silverbeet…"

"The more time I spend outback at home, the more I appreciate my knowledge of where the sun is at each day and throughout the day. Every time I fiddle with the garden, I'm reimagining my sun or shade usage."

  • Aw what a shame - but you can’t beat the tide- probably even with a rock wall...our beach lost a lot of sand this year too. It’s been exactly one year now since we planted our 100 tiny vetiver plants and they have grown so quickly and made a huge difference to soil- lots of worms wherever we dig and they grow 6 inches a week, - so make lots of mulch! Also stops grass from invading new beds and keeps dogs off! 

  • Hey Dave the vetiver I got from you for my sandy garden at Straddie are going great guns, I even had enough now to give some to a neighbour and spend the word about wonderful vetiver!

  • Hey Dave, I use "after photo" - it's free but with ads. 

  • And you probably could do that to Dave.

  • Oh, and I forgot how good his jokes are too????

  • Love the Updated Profile and Avatar, you really have a gift Dave, you are an inspiration to all our Members I am sure.
