Hi Trinett, is the yakumo giant peas you wanted from diggers the same as yakumo snowpeas? I bought a packet from Eden Seeds last year, and planted some and these were the photos from then. They were certainly bigger then the store bought ones, but didn't left any till full size for seed saving before they were killed by mildew, I think the structure wasn't tall enough for them and they didn't get enough airflow. I sow a dozen this year at the base of our peach tree, but I think the chooks got them... if you just want to give it a try, I can spare a dozen seeds for you.

Any tips for using the sprouter? I think you have one the same as mine...
This is the first time I have tried to use it and I am not sure what to do now. They have started sprouting, and I have tipped the water out but left them in the special jar and laid it on its side - am I supposed to rinse the sprouts each day and let the water drain again?

Hi Trinnette, there was no problem at all, since Albert would like to be the driver car pooling or not ~~

Hi Trinette, is carpooling still being organised for this Sunday? We are still okay to pick up up to three people on the way, but would like to know a bit earlier so we can organise our day ..

It is still in my 'Gardenate.com' reminder for Jan & Feb so should be. Let me know if you want Balinese or Hawiaan, I will bring them to the meeting. I'll also check the book and see if they are best direct or if I can pot some up for you.

Okay, I will pot up a few Aloe in case someone else want them too. The black pearl chillies are pretty plants, I am trying to grow some as border for the front garden. I’ve used them for chillie spray when I actually get around to do some spraying .... As for eating, I’ve tried putting them in fried rice, spice up soy sauces, and in veggie stir fry … I advise never use more then one chillie if you are not the type who eat really really spicy food …. I’ve made the mistake myself ..

Oh by the way, I don't have much available at the moment, but there's some black Pearl chillies and Aloe Vera I can pot up. I also have sweet potato(orange variety), and a small amount of Kang Kong (water spinach) cuttings. Would you like any of these?

no Im not a big fan , my favorite so far of the asian type vege is tatsoi as a salard veg , a bit like english spinach , very fast growing.

thank you but I have plenty .Malabar , Ceylon , climbing , Indian , vine , Surinam & country spinach are all listed in Asian Herbs & Vegetables by Penny Woodward as names for Basella alba & B. alba 'Rubra . It doses self seed very easy , I have not planted any in 5 yrs & its still growing in at least 3 spots in my yard . I use it fresh in mixed leaf salads as I found it to be a bit slimy if over cooked , in fact one of the common names listed is slippery vegetable . A lot of the asian vegetables are very easy to grow , what I find hard is how to use them apart from the basic salard , stir fry dish .

hi how is the garden going . would that be ceylon spinach in one of your photos , I got some plants a few years back and they have been self seeding ever since , I did have the green & red stem types but the green seems to have died out .
