Hey Deb, Yes it is Bandicoots that are digging the holes in your garden. Liz, yes, Stinking Roger is a Marigold. It's possibly the best plant for Nematode control, however I haven't heard of it used as a Bandicoot deterrent. In fact, I'm reasonably sure I used to see Bandicoot activity in the acres of the bloody stuff we used to have growing along the River Bank.

Deb, would you like seedlings or prefer I get some seed to you somehow?

Hi Deb,

Let me know how that open garden looks as I can't make it.  About the planter boxes I am happy to make you some and even show you how to make them too, maybe at one of the meetings so other members can benefit? Up to you but will make a few as I can, no price just provide your own soil.

That's wonderful! I've never tried making jam with chia to date. Louise mentioned it will last a couple of weeks in the fridge. Our black mulberries didn't crop well this year but we have white mulberries ... mainly only good for eating. So I eat them fresh, while the season lasts.

G'day Deb, the ratio is 1 tsp. oil half tsp. Bicarb soda & a little detergent to 1 litre of water in a spray can. Try to spray older leaves, the new growth tends to suffer a little I have noticed. Spraying the fruit will not affect the taste of it in the case of tomatoes & other smooth skinned fruit, however Paw-Paw does absorb the oil so best off spraying the trunk of the tree in that case. I find spraying every 3 weeks is enough but I still bag the big tomatoes or use nets.

Hi Deb, there is a great line-up of events at the moment ..The ones named: LFG events are our official events. The others have been posted by our members either for their own activities or to raise awareness of the opportunity available in the broader community.

Welcome to Logan Food Gardeners, Deb!

I don't live far away from you, in Pallara, and I love making jams and jellies, cordials and other goodies with the things we produce at home. Look forward to meeting you soon, at one of our events. Our next Garden Visit is in New Farm. It would be great if you'd like to join us there!

Cheers, Liz Woods
