Change The World

Am aware that I might be asking the impossible, but this is the right place to ask it...My garden in Auckland wants a ground crop that I can plant now and harvest at the end of September.Anything considered, wasabi, cut flowers, ...

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

Saving Tomatoes

I haven't done much propagating in the last 3 years so my collection of saved seeds is getting old.

I have collected quite a lot of varieties of tomato seed and I want to grow them again andsave some fresh seed.
