Thanks Dianne,

 I have been getting information from this forum for the last 2 years. Finally pulled my finger out and decided to join. I have only been at my current place for the last 2 years previously had this place rented out and lived on a smaller block. I grew up on farms and a banana plantations as a kid and have always wanted to get back to that sort of lifestyle albeit close to the city for work purposes. 

Once again thanks for the welcome and I will try to contribute as much as I can.

BTW my avatar is of a few of my first crop of black sapote this year, my first and how I love them.

Regards Doug

Hi Dianne, thanks for great reply, I am very interested in growing the YACON tubers as I have a type two diabetic wife. I watched the Garden Guru on tv yesterday and that prompted me to grow this wonderful plant. I have never seen it before and am wanting to get a few tubers to plant. I would be very interested in obtaining some if you or your other members are able to spare a few. Kind regards Wally.

Hi Diane, thanks so much for your welcome. There are so many interesting discussions, the one I am very interested in is a recipe for "Green citrus marmalade (jam)", but I can't find it anywhere. Would you guys help me find it, I recently pruned my lemon tree and I have a lot of green lemons. 

Many thanks, Karmen

Hello Dianne, thanks so much for your welcome.  I would love to visit gardens, and will sign up for the Turners Garden visit on March 25. I am really keen to look around the site and I really do enjoy the idea of connecting with like minded folk!

Hello Dianne :)

Thank you ever so much for your warm welcome. My apologies for the late reply, i have been busy working. Thank you for the local info, I shall definitely keep my eye out on whats happening and where. I would love to go to the garden visits as I'm eager to learn :) I have just noticed some of my seedling starting to sprout which I'm so thrilled about. I'm heading to purchase some more tomorrow. :) Looking forward to a thriving Veggie garden.

Hi Dianne, Thanks for your email and welcome.  Until last year I was receiving the groups emails and loved reading about the garden visits which always seemed to take place at a time I had to work!  Now I am working less, I am keen to get to know you and some of your lovely members who I am sure agree, there is nothing like getting your hands in the dirt!  Will hopefully meet you this Sunday.

Hi Dianne,

Thank You very much for your warm welcome. I think when I move back to Thailand, (from a Jungle in Laos), I will start a small Permie farm, hopefully this year... up North, in TH. The climate there is probably similar to QL. Then I will certainly be much more active on the net...

Til then...Warmest Regards,

Cheers Chris @

Hi Dianne. I wonder if you have or know someone who has the aloe arborescens plant? I would love to get a few cuttings. It has beautiful red flowers that attract honesuckle birds.
