Growing local

I haven't done a look around the patch for a while, so I thought I'd show you what was happening. Winter in the sub-tropics is a funny time - I find I don't need too worry about temperature too much but sunlight hours really has an impact.

Once the yam leaves die back you can dig it up. If its still small just replant it and it will grow a lot more next year. The plants I gave out were from very small arial tubers that take longer to get going. I am going to harvest my yams on the weekend.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
