"Good Morning, have a great morning girls, hopefully if I master Macarons (I understand they are very tricky to make, they even say never to make on rainy, humid or overcast days) I will bring some along to our next Garden Visit."

Susan's tomatoes

First tomatoes from seeds saved at Susan's garden visit. I think they were the pink egg ones. Time will tell.

Autumn 2021 at The Gap

Posted on July 3, 2021 at 17:30 4 Comments

Well last blog was 2 years ago, where shall I start?

One season at a time.

In late February, I dug out the taro for what looked like a promising result… or not. Well, I mean that plant was almost bigger than me. I since then dug out more and gave it a final taste try to decide that it is definitely not a…

Winter at The Gap

Posted on June 29, 2019 at 10:30 9 Comments

 

When I got back from Europe, I could not take the pumpkin forest anymore. It had to go. I had spread some seeds among it hoping something else got to grow in my absence. Some sweet peas did but they were so feeble, that they were not worth saving. The kids had deserted the garden when the weather was so lovely. They could barely get to the trampoline, you see. So, it had to go. Yay, what a relief. There is now room to breathe and…

Autumn in the school garden

With the recent rain, the veggies gardens are really coming to life this year with promising growth and some produce already being harvested.

In the tuckshop area, we planted some lettuces, which are already being used for tuckshop. Some education was needed to make sure that the whole lettuce hearts weren't plucked out altogether and only leaves were harvested to ensure continuous supply. As it were the first lettuces were going to seeds already with the heat. Experience learned,…

Well, it has been a hot and dry summer. The garden beds were really dry but quite a few things survived. Luckily for us, the rain arrived right on cue. A little drizzle here, another downpour there and before you know it the garden will be brimming with life again. No time to lose. This year we are starting bright and early with greens and tomatoes for the tuckshop.…

Thanks very much for the lovely afternoon Valerie-Ann.

If you could bring plate to the Christmas garden visit that would be great.

Also please thank Rhys for the hose which will come in very useful

H Valerie jerusalum artichokes would still be growing and not ready for harvest yet and it may be hard at the moment to find   any rhisomes. to grow You may have to wait a while winter perhaps .One place worth a try is Kenmore village in the fruit shop although they may be in the same predicament..Good luck

Welcome to the Garden Visit group Valerie-Anne.

Keep an eye on the Calendar within the group to see where visits are planned for the year. I also list them in Events as some require RSVP.

Addresses for the visits are sent out the week before via email to your actual email account (whatever you have provided to the BLF site) - they don't turn up in your Private Messages.

Let me know if you have any problems. I'm happy to help :)
