I found the strangest creature in my garden....

It is like a piece of wire that can move.  Below is a photo I pulled off the net, but the one I found looks very much like it.  It is about 12 cm long and brown like this one.  It can lift its head…Continue

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

Thanks Lyn, great to meet you too and have a peak at your garden.  Glad to find a good use for that box and rehome some worms. :)

Hi Gill, Thanks for changing these arrangements. Appreciate your help. Will add you to the roster for Sunday arvo. Cheers, Liz

At 6:34 on September 10, 2013, Gill Hall said…

Hi Lyn

Not a problem. Do you still need a small table. This is easier as it will fit in my car and I don't need a trailer or I can get it to Mary beforehand and then Liz can roster me for the afternoon on the Sunday only and I can pack up.

I wondered where we would put a marquee because it is all garden .

cheers

Gill

Home grown food is great for so many reasons..........

Posted on February 27, 2014 at 20:30 3 Comments

Home grown food is better for individuals, families, communities and the planet for social, emotional, health and environmental reasons.

  • Individuals –
    • health - it is more nutritious, delicious, fresher and poisonous-spray free
    • Social and emotional -  People who grow food feel a closer connection to the land, the place and the environment.  They also feel a sense of pride for creating something so…

Not much to eat at the moment.

Posted on November 21, 2013 at 21:00 6 Comments

I felt a bit disapointed today as I wandered around my yard.  There isn't much in the garden to harvest.  No bumper crops filling the fridge or freezer.  No surplus to farm out to friends.  Just bits here and there and unripe fruit that promise a good future, but not ready yet.  

I have been harvesting about 4 strawberries per day (think I need an acre of these to get enough), about 4 red pawpaw over the last 2 weeks, some lady finger bananas, one Loganberry (I cut it in half and…

Wow so excited! I just called Bunnings to see if they would donate some gardening supplies to my son's kindy. They said YES! So tomorrow I am going to pick up mulch, compost, seeds, seedlings and hopefully even some fruit trees!!! Thanks Christie at Bunnings you rock!

What a lovely day I have had

As hot as it was I managed to get out into the garden for much of the morning and then again in the late afternoon.  I haven't spent much time in my garden over the last 6 months, so it felt so good to get out there and get my hands in the dirty.

Here are some of the things I did today:

  • Dug up the potatoes -  got about 2/3 of a bucket full o
  • Picked all the Madagascar (lima) beans.  the beans including the pods filled a big bucket.
  • ate mulberries straight…
