Christmas Brunch / Secret Santa at Logan Reserve

December 2, 2018 from 8am to 11:30am
Please bring along a plate of food to share. There will also be a secret santa/raffle table.  This has become a bit of a Christmas tradition. Everyone who brings along a gift to contribute to this table will go home with something new for themselves.  Please don't wrap the gifts, as people choose from the table what they want. In previous years people have brought along unusual plants, cookbooks, tools, really anything you think a fellow gardener may be interested in. Hope to see you there.See More

November 4, 2018 from 9am to 11am
David and Catherine live on a beautiful 2.5 acres in Sheldon. Their land is mostly compacted clay, so they have had to find alternative methods to grow their veggies. They have used techniques such as hugelkultur, raised wicking beds and layered beds.  They are growing lots of different types of veggies.....sprouts, broccoli, pumpkins, strawberries, cabbage, tomatoes, peanuts, yams, garlic, melons, gourd and more.David will give a talk (with video presentation) about exactly he set up the…See More

LFG Event: Annual Birthday Party and garden visit at Tanah Merah

August 5, 2018 from 1pm to 3pm
You will know if you have seen Lyn's place before, that it is really impressive and worth seeing.  Amazingly it seems to get better every year, so it is worth coming even if you have seen it before. Here is what she has to say about it:I love my garden so much.  I love the food I harvest and feed to my family and give to my friends. I love that I can create something of value for little or no money.  I love that my garden and my produce inspires other people to grow themselves.  I love that my…See More

grasshoppers

Posted on April 7, 2015 at 17:33 9 Comments

I went away for two weeks and grasshoppers took up residence in my veggie patch, stripping the greens bare. Who Knows an effective cure please. I googled and the lay up to 200 eggs at a time.

I have cabbages that survived the heat and the rain, now they are being eaten by bugs, any suggestions how to stop this, I prefer an organic solution.

Hi Phil,

My apologies for leaving you hanging!  Thanks for the welcome.  I am very keen to really get a great food garden going but have had very limited time for it since becoming a member!

I am currently only growing cherry tomato plants and some hybrid capsicum plants, but I am having mixed results with the capsicums - I think to do with where I planted them (in a rush to get them in) and also the caterpillars and possibly other insects are getting to them.

Ideally I would love to grow all the vegies that we eat regularly (many of which are the most chemically sprayed by producers), and I am hopeful that one day it will be abundant enough for me to pass some along to our local community centre or other service for people in need.

Any suggestions you may have - particularly things you have had most success with, and thoughts on planting at this time of year would be most welcome.

Thanks!

Hi Phil,

Sorry, I don't know any bug cures but the pics of your produce is magnificent.

The colours in there speak volumes to me.

My thoughts on the merit of a garden are changing a lot since I have joined this group.

Hi Phil,
Hope I am doing this correctly. I am still learning about my I
I Pad so I do some weird things. What area do you live in? How long have you been part of this wonderful group? It was lovely to talk to you on Sunday. There is just so much to learn and so much fun trying to be productive in the garden. I am slowly sorting out what is successful and what to forget, I will get there eventually. Thanks for your friend request and I look forward to chatting with you.
Regards Wendy

Your fig tree needs to go into the ground Phil & apparently they do better when you mound up the bed.
