About Me
I am a stay at home mum with a 4 year old girl, Hailey and 6 year old boy, Riley. I have always loved 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 :)

G'day Lyn, thankyou for your amazing effort on Tuesday night:) What is the name of that potato/yam that you said grows on a vine & where can I get some?

G'day Lyn

I've been a member for a while but keep in the back ground however I may come to the Crestmead community garden meet as its near me.

My son has a garden shed & 3 benches he would like to pass on to some body who may like to pay a few dollars for them. 

I'm not so good with knowing where or how I could show pics of them. I'll leave my contact details.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Craig Perry

Rain rain come down and come back again another day

Posted on June 4, 2016 at 17:17 0 Comments

Well it is great to have all this rain.  It is a bit of a shame about LEAF, but happy that my garden is wet for a change.  I had been really concerned that we had entered our dry season after has such a dry summer.  I thought we had missed our chance for soil wetting rain.  I am so happy that this rain is recharging the soil and filling my empty rainwater tanks.   I am also really happy that I have increased my water storage capacity by 3000 litres recently.

Making awesome bread

Posted on December 20, 2015 at 22:08 0 Comments

I would like to share with you the things I put in my bread mix to make the most awesome bread (and the reasons why).  It is not sour dough and it is not spelt, but it is awesome anyway.  I put all the ingredients in the breadmaker and put it on timer to be ready in the morning.  When I put it on timer it makes a much better loaf of bread.

2 c white flour (not organic as the organic I have bought from Woollies does not make a good bread)

1 c wholemeal flour

In the weekend I did a big clean up of junk that had been lying around and sent my hubby off to the dump.  It feels good to have the yard looking productive AND tidy (well…

You are going to laugh at this

I have desperately been trying to correct a nutrient deficiency in some of my brassicas.  They look a bit like the attached photo.  I have just realised my error.  This is an ornamental cabbage and not an eating cabbage!!!  So the white and purple are to look pretty in flour arrangements and are not a nutrient deficiency!!!  My friend who works at a wholesale nursery gave them to me (along with a variety of others), so he probably didn't realise they were ornamentals!!!  

I am so…
