quick question... for how many weeks does everyone here harvest their mature asparagus before letting it grow again?  And does anyone harvest twice a year - eg; early spring and late summer? Continue

Starting over (kind of)

Posted on December 7, 2010 at 21:38 3 Comments

I’ve never blogged before. I figure it might be a good way to keep track of what I’m doing with my veggie beds each season, since I seem to be rubbish at keeping notes as I go. So, this might be a good time to start as my beds are going to have a rest while we are away for a month, then I’ll be starting…

Yes Tracy,

It was lovely to meet you and have a chat. So many people are striving for sustainability. There are so many aspects to our lifestyles. I hope you can come and visit us some time. Also we are happy to drive to visit your family too. We bought a hybrid, still not sure if it is really helping the planet...but it is cheaper to run that is for sure. I do quite a lot of driving, which is one thing I need to learn to replace with walking more. Driving the car is my most difficult challenge in sustainability.

Thanks for that Tracy. I didn't get around to plant the cucumber yet, will do it this weekend. I've tried planting the corns you gave me 3 weeks ago, but unfortunately only 2 came up ^^ ... guess you can't keep corn seeds long at all so I better use up all the corn seeds I bought this season ^^ Hope to see u again this Sunday :)

My mum just found this site searching for nematodes as well - I wonder if Donna tagged it especially well, or if it's just lucky?

Well hopefully your future cucumbers will be marvellous :)
