Hi Trinette, how's your new place going??

Hehe, sometimes I think of giving up uni and just studying horticulture instead and spending all my time in the garden with my chickens. : )

Hi Trinette, I think I only have one survived.. I am preparing a mini banana and paw paw circle and thinking of transplanting the surviving one there next weekend... I would like to get a couple more dwarf ones for the circle but I am not sure whether I should wait till spring, or do it now ^^... so much to do in the garden, a few hours on the weekend is not enough!!!

Hi Trinette, just wondering how your banana pups are growing? I think only one of my three is growing new leaves... but they are still in a temporary position...

Oh no, I can't believe you'll be away :( You will have to do a blog now to tell me all about how your seeds are coming along - nothing happening here yet... think I'll have to plant with the baby hothouse - bother what a waste of seeds!

Glad you had a good time - did you end up going to the expo.. and if so was there enough time to see anything - hopefully I will get there one year surely!

I did some planting on Sunday too, but not very much in the scheme of things - still have heaps of empty beds but am waiting for the seeds I planted the week before to come up. If they don't by this weekend I will have to make mini greenhouses and plant them directly.

I can't comment on your blog - it's doing something weird, it thinks I want to flag it, not comment on it? ning problems - so i'll be here instead
those expensive designer bags just have a twist tie incorporated in the top of them - maybe just some garbage bag ties would do the trick nicely? also maybe use waxed kitchen paper - it would be water resistant (again this is basically what the designer ones are made of - you might need to be good at origami though)

You are most welcome, Trinette :-) My pleasure and enjoy that garlic! :-)

Hi Trinette, I managed to scab some orange and red habanero chili seeds from a lovely man on whirlpool forum for us! I will give you them at your meeting on Sunday :)

Hi Trinette, I have some elephant garlic cloves and bulblets you can have and will share a few cloves of the other ones with you if you can make it to the Feb GV at Florence's.

Happy Belated Birthday Trinette! Hope you had an awesome day and look forward to hearing about your upside down experiment...

Thanks Trinette, I have locked you in for March - I look forward to seeing your new garden, don't forget to mention a working bee if you want a new bed or something... many hands make light work!

When it gets closer (or when you get a chance), please create an Event with the date that suits you best so people can keep it free. Personally I don't like to add my address, so I message those that RSVP with it a few days before.

Here is the link for the guy who sells banana trees - you would need to call him and ask him to save them for you though as they normally go quickly at the markets:

Finally found contact details for my 'fruit tree man' that I used to get plants from at Beenleigh Markets.

Ron & Gaye's Nursery, we sell at Mt Tamborine School Market on the last Sunday and at Beenleigh Showground markets 1st and 3rd Sundays each month - or Phone 075543 8035 or Mobile 0419 274 316 for appointment at farm. No business between sunset Friday and sunset Saturday as it is God's Holy Sabbath.

July 2007 price list excerpts (obviously would have changed but I always found him VERY reasonable and the pot sizes are good):
Banana - Ducasse from $8
Brazilian Cherry $10
Finger Lime $20
Lemonade $13
Lemons (Eureka, Meyer, Lisbon, Bush) $13
Limes (Kaffir, Tahitian, Indian Sweet) $13
Curry Leaf Tree $6
Custard Apple $21
Paw Paw Red $4
Tamarillo $6
Yacon $6

Hi Trinette
Not sure if you were interested in the lucerne as well - here is what I put on Cass's page
The member with lucerne mulch is Don Forsyth, here is a link to his page:

I have also done a blog on Lucerne Mulch recently and the trouble I have had with fine Sugar Cane mulch.

Hi Trinette ~ Good to see you back, hope you are all settled in at your new place and we'll see some pics soon :)

Hi Trinette, hope the move goes well - what suburb are you moving to, have you bought a place?
At 20:20 on September 15, 2009, Vanessa Collier said…
Hi Trinette, Have fun moving house! It must be nice to finally be moving. You'll be able to start a whole new garden - how exciting! Where are you moving to?

Hi Trinette
I have the Galangal Red at home, let me know if you will be around this weekend and we might be able to drop it off. Otherwise if you are in the area we will be around just give me a call.
