What would it take for me to produce most of my own food?

My garden is abundant and supplying me with many fruits and vegies.  Every meal contains food from the garden, but I feel a bit dissatisfied at the amount we still buy from the shops.  It seems to me there are 2 things I need to address to reduce our reliance on shop bought food and increase the food provided by the garden.  These are 1) Grow a greater quantity of the foods we eat and 2) modify our eating habits to incorporate more of what we are growing in our meals.1) Grow a greater quantity…See More

They have plenty of space to establish fruit trees and grow the vegetables which supply their kitchen, but Roger has reverted to container gardening to achieve productivity. He has done this to…See More

About Me
I am a stay at home mum with a 1 year old girl, Hailey and 3 year old boy, Riley. I have always love the idea of being partially self sufficient and so I love growing fruit and veg, and keeping chooks for eggs. I am the proud founder of Logan Food Gardeners and I am really excited about its potential to connect people who are just like me :)

Hi Lyn, Georgie here from Jimboomba Community Garden, Just wondering how you are going with organising a team for our event. Do you want me to use your logo for the head of your bed?

Ur, "Thanks Chris" is graciously accepted. However, I wish to extend a massive heart felt thank you back to you, firstly for creating this amazing group, secondly, for overseeing it's incredible growth and thirdly, for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of it. Ur strength and drive is truly inspirational.

Great work Lyn,

You just reminded me to go pick a large Pepino in my garden. Been feasting on Mulberries for weeks now and the local kids keep the tree clean over the front fence and my chook gets those in reach on the inside of the fence, leaving the high ones for me.

My solar powered electric trike is ready to collect, so should have it on-the-road by Saturday all being well.

Dry as I can remember and the bom news that it may stay dry till late January is a matter of some concern as I have already emptied my tanks and am using lots of town water. Just picked the last of the Thai Guava crop which has been wonderful this year and the Grumichama are starting to flower which should mean a harvest in 6 weeks or so.

Hi Lyn,

any of the tomoato seedlings left.?  If there are any remaining, I thought of swinging by tomorrow morning(saturday) on my way to tai chi class. thanks.

Hi Lyn,

Back again-I just had a meeting with the community coordinator and we are going to postpone the grant application until later on as it needs to be finished by 30 sept and doesn't give us enough time to work on getting committee together etc. However, we still need particulars from you about availability and cost for a later date

At 18:13 on September 26, 2013, Deb Fazio said…

Also, lyn I am interested in some tomato seedlings as my one tomato plant is rather sad looking at the moment.my number is 32712760

At 18:07 on September 26, 2013, Deb Fazio said…

Hi Lyn, just wondering if you would be interested in giving a presentation at Carole Park community house within the next month or so. If so how much would you charge as we are trying to get a grant together to build a community garden.

We are trying to encourage community participation and so would probably include other workshops at a later date so would just like topics similar to the ones you discussed at your open day: wicking, composting, worms

Lyn's Garden in August 2014

Posted on August 10, 2014 at 8:30 4 Comments

Wow I am loving my garden at the moment!  I would love you to come to my garden on 16 August and I will share what has been going on here.

Chris Downes has been over recently giving a few suggestions here and there that have made a big difference.  Firstly I asked him why he thought the plants in one of my garden beds were struggling.  He said he thought that the garden bed was too wet.  It happens to be one of my wicking gardens, so I held off on watering it and it improved.  Also We…

Do you have LEGO to trade?

Posted on July 4, 2014 at 14:29 0 Comments

My very deserving 6 year old, Riley, would like to know if you have any Lego you don't want anymore.  He has plans for a whole fleet of Lego vehicles, but has unfortunately reached current capacity.  We can pay in home grown vegies, fruit, eggs or food gardening advice :)…

Gravity fed worm castings/compost/weed tea watering system

Posted on June 30, 2014 at 22:30 1 Comment

I have a big garden, that some would say is steep.   The house is at road level and the back garden slopes down from there.  I know the benefits of compost/weed teas, but distributing these with buckets or a watering can around my garden just isn't practical.  A few years ago I came up with a great solution....

A gravity fed waterer.  Basically it is a big 220L drum with the lid cut off with a hose connector attached near the bottom of the drum (I bought the connector at…
