Jujube Trees

I have 24 Jujube trees for sale in Hawkes Bay including grafted Li and Chico. They are 6 years old and approx 2 metres in height (fruiting).  Cant be picked up till dormant. 

They have been treated and spent time in quarantine when first brought into the country. 

Not easy to come by in NZ and great fruiting trees.

I knew we were somewhat coastal but I never imagined how bad it could be.

We moved in just before summer. The first thing that we realized was that our rain water catchment was not…

Raising chickens for eggs and meat

There are environmental and animal rights groups constantly talking about the horrors of conventionally farmed chicken. After years of being a blind consumer, I opened my eyes and realized that there was a problem. I have approached the problem in a way that is pretty unique among my peers.

The vegans want me to give up meat. Unfortunately, I would starve. I am allergic to just about every plant based protein you can name. I also become violently ill when I eat seafood and…

autumn's abundance

the American tradition of thanksgiving and English harvest festivals all makes sense when I reflect on the past few weeks. Been given apples, pears, plums, quinces, free range eggs, harvesting my saffron and not even begun to prepare my garlic for sharing and planting, been so busy making jam, jellies, quince paste, bottling apples and blackboy peaches. Not that I'm complaining, it's how I unwind. timed myself and it takes 17 minutes to pluck the stigmas from 63 flowers. Bumped into Matt who… Continue

new permaculture website from PigintheMud

Quite stoked to have reached 10,000 journal downloads in over 90 countries.
