Hi Justin.. we will be home on and off over the weekend if you want to pick them up.. we live in Hillcrest.. just phone first on 8562498


As to Kombucha.. the last person I shared grains with gave me some .. but to my shame it is still sitting in my fridge.. no idea if it is still usable. I think that the problem is that I have absolutely no idea what Kombucha is supposed to taste like so haven't been brave enough to try making it!

Along the same lines I would love to find some water kefir if anyone has any, I killed mine off over the winter through inactivity but now the weather is warmer its really water kefir time.

If anyone is interested in trying Milk Kefir, I have some spare grains.

Hi Anna

If your plum tree is grafted rather than grown from seed, the plum root stock is very likely to be a different variety chosen for characteristics like vigor or disease resistance - may even be peach!    However, if the tree was grown from seed, the root suckers will be true to type = big sweet juicy black plums.

Hi Michael (and Sarah), the event was posted by me on behalf of WIC and the Grandview Salvation Army.  Can you give me a call during work hours and I'll fill you in?  Ph 823-4560.  Cheers.

Sorry Sarah thought i was putting out a general request about the Nawton garden . Don't quite understand how posting and forums work although i read everyone comments on the comment wall, Any way i read  a posting about a meeting for a community garden proposal at the salvation army site on Grandveiw rd it was Sat the 8th,and i believe was organized by a lady from Cambridge . I was unable to attend but keen to help as i also live in Nawton

I just received an email msg from a Michael G C Sanson asking about a Nawton Community Garden...I don't know about this, but if anyone else does, I would also be interested as I live in Nawton.

Does anyone know if you can grow plum trees that fruit from root stock? If so i have loads to give away if anyone wants them - they are big sweet juicy black plums with lighter flesh.
