" Time to plant out your garlic crop. I grow all the garlic we use for a year ahead. Ideally garlic is planted on the shortest day in winter, and harvested on the longest day in summer. Happy planting. "

"Hello Danielle, if you pm your address to me, I'll post some pits to you. Doubt if the seedlings would survive the post and probably wouldn't get past your biosecurity agency."

Evidence of dog attack

Posted by Suburban Micro Food Forest on June 22, 2015 at 8:02pm


Some citrus this year, mandarins, oranges, limes, grapefruit. Should have put in the persimon in year one. I've put in asparagus three years late. The bed in front of the west facing wall is very hot and dry. Good for melons and grapes. Have moved the rhubarb to a better irrigated spot with deep soil. Passionfruit seed has germinated. I have to figure out how to contain the chooks but still let them forage. They seem to be happier on everyone else's property and I think it's grass they…

Chitted seed

The chitted corn and beans had fantastic germination but the corn is dieing back although it has pollinated. Broad Beans are a winter crop anyway.

Temperature will drop to 4 degC tonight and one of my chooks was attacked by a roaming pair of dogs and lost half her feathers. I have solved the problem by loading steaming composting grass into their sleeping house and putting a layer of polystyrene foam waste on the roof. So insulation plus under-floor heating. The compost will generate heat for three days. One other chook hasn't come home so I don't know if she is dead or just hiding. Have dropped flyers around the area with a phone…

My bananas didn't produce very promising fruit and took up a lot of space so I chopped them up and dumped them in the soak hole at the lower end of the section along with the taro. Being indestructible they both took root and now serve as transpirers and will block the neighbours house in two years. May eventually produce something edible if you can wait that long.
