"I think those allotment gardens are a great idea.  A parent and child could have a lot of fun together in that situation.  Also in that situation, there would be other gardeners to talk too and learn from. "

Do we need signs that say warning sky, warning grass, warning air, warning nature??? OK I get that there is a possibility of microbes in there that could make you sick, because it is not treated, but I can't help thinking that chlorine and fluoride…

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 :)

Hi Lyn,

Did I see you with worms for sale? An if so can I buy some please?

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 number is 32712760

Do you want to pick up your Food Connect order from Tanah Merah?

Posted on March 3, 2015 at 14:17 1 Comment

I have approached Food Connect to become one of their city cousins (collection point for food boxes). If you are interested in joining and would like to pick your box up from Tanah Merah, let me or Food Connect know. Here's to a fairer food system 

Biogas at last

After a few teething problems we have finally heated our first jug of water for a celebratory cup of tea.  Thanks Colin :)

There is excellent gas pressure and plenty of gas.  It boiled the water in no time at all.  All we need now is a shield around it to shelter it from the wind.…


Dinner tonight

Posted on October 28, 2014 at 20:11 1 Comment

Made a yummy poached chicken dish tonight,  It was chicken breast cut into big chunks poached in water and white wine.  I also had in the sauce sliced white choko, with kafir lime leaves, spring onions, parsley and salt and pepper.  I thickened the sauce with cornflower and water.  DELISH!

Sorry vegetarians :(

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…
