About Me
Newbie to veggie growing - started early July. Really enjoying the freshness of home grown salad vegetables. Hubby initially was resistant as I got him involved with all the work in setting up the garden. But now he loves the fruit of our labour. Going to add chooks soon.

fussy chickens

Posted on November 14, 2015 at 7:59 3 Comments

I seem to have very fussy chickens who throw the feed they don't like out of the feeder, which adds up to quite a substantial waste not to mention the continuous food for vermin. I use Jenko grain layer mash. I have tried the ground feed which is just the same. Has anyone experienced this and how did you fix it. I am thinking of just buying pellets (nothing to sort - all the same) but i have tried them with a small sample znd they won't eat it. Is it a matter of tough love and just give them… Continue

On the nose

Posted on March 12, 2015 at 11:39 1 Comment

Followed my nose in the garden the other day. I thought the neighbour's cat had made a deposit in my garden again. Would you believe that this was the culprit? It stinks worse than any cat poo you have ever smelled. It's a Lantern Stinkhorn and attracts flies which then spread the spores to other areas in the garden.…


Milk Kefir

Posted on March 12, 2015 at 10:47 0 Comments

I recently lost my milk kefir grains to a house/pet sitter who didn't know what they were, but thought it was off food in the fridge, so she threw them in the bin.

Does anyone have any spare milk kefir grains to get me started again?


guerilla gardening

I am doing some guerilla gardening with a friend in my local park. Can anyone help with seeds or seedlings for fruit trees like custard apple, black sapote, avocado, pecan, cacao or any other interesting fruit tree. If you live near Algester and want to get involved please let me know.

Hi Gabby, one book I will lend you is called "A-Z of Companion Planting"by Pamela Allardice, I am still trying to get the title of the other one :-) Louise

thank you for your welcome Gabriele, I'm really looking forward to getting into my little garden that I've started and getting it more established.  Hoping to get to a lot of the events to learn as much as I can.  thanks Tessa

Regarding black soldier fly larve - don't exterminate them, they aren't house flies.  They are very useful.  But definitely remove them from your red compost worm farm/tower mainly because they make the mix too acid and take over - a problem we had a few weeks back. Gavin has started two worm projects - one for the red compost worms to make worm wee and the other for good old bulk compost to make soil that we desperately need.  The black soldier larve turn into flies that just live to breed more larve.  They don't come inside like house flies nor do they bite, but the larve voraciously eat scraps and reduce it quickly.  Larve make great fishing bait apparently too.  Hopefully Gavin will post an update.  In cooler overseas countires gardeners actually buy the larve to bred them for their compost bins and we get them here free!

G'day Gabriele, Pigeon Pea tree was the other seed I was gonna give you to encourage native bees around your is a 2 meter bush that can grow in any soil & I have noticed a significant increase in native bee activity of at least 4 different varieties, so think of an insignificant part of your property & plant one there. Cheers :) & keep growing.

Hi Gabrielle                        Soursop.

I just got a few seeds and threw them all in a garden bed. If they germinate I will give you a seedling, if not I will try to get more seeds. A coupls are trying to shoot through, will you be at the next open garden?

Cheers Gabriele, anytime you think of getting a plant drop a line & ask first, I have over 40 different plants. I recommend a pigeon pea tree to attract native bees( I have heaps of seed) & Ceylon Spinach which is a vine you can grow along your fence tastes just like spinach & produces all year round( I have heaps of seed for that as well). Bless you guys & keep growing:)

When the chooks had the whole back lawn to themselves they would rest in the same area & of course left allot of droppings there.
