HI Lissa,


Thanks so much for welcoming us all into your home today. It was a beautiful morning and I learned so much from everyone. The palm tree has found a new home. It is in the back yard which is more sheltered. We are not quite ready for planting in the front which is the western sun side of the house so it is out in the other tropical area which is very moist all year round. So the palm will be very happy there. Many thanks for everything Look forward to next time.

Hello Lissa
I've put your magnificent coloured carrots in the banner - is that OK? I managed to lose the old photos!
cheers Scarlett

Hey Lissa,
ALL my baby chookies eventually became roosters! They are beautiful specimens.I still have 2 and they are a delight to watch. Huge boys.At the present I am leaving them in under a black tarp til 0800. They are making very little noise.They are thrilling the girls or annoying and possibly I may end up with some chicks.One of my girls front them the same manner as they front her and they meekly walk away. Will see how we go. If any noise annoys neighbours I will have to move them out!!

Lissa, there are no photos waiting for approval? As soon as I log in they show up and I do them and members at the same time. Maybe upload them again...

Hi Lissa, not sure if you ended up getting potatoes for your grow bags... I was at Bunnings in Oxley yesterday and they still had some in stock.

If you are interested and will be at the next Garden Visit I could pick you up some? If you PM me your mobile number I could text you the varieites next time I am there - probably next weekend sometime?

I deleted the baby chicks discussion just so the phone numbers wouldn't be up there forever - just being prudent

Hi Larissa, I noticed you are new to growing a productive garden and are planning one for your new place. I do provide garden visits for planninh purposes and you'd just love the spring vegeis workshop to learn how to prepare the soil, choose the right spot and choose what to grow organically. The workshops are listed in the workshops page on my website. Let me know if you'd lke to join in.
Happy growing...Linda
