Desperately in need of lemons. I have plum sauce and/or mustard pickle to exchange.

Hi Helen you were asking about seeds and where to buy? I go to Kings Seeds nz website. Or if you just want a couple of packets Green Door Havelock North sells them too. Good luck. Oh the hay, I would use it as mulch, especially around any fruit trees that you plant this coming winter.

Thanks for hosting the meeting Meredith...it was fantastic to see what you have achieved in just a year. The setting is lovely and the company was excellent. A great turnout. And of course, the food was great too...pot lucks always seem to turn out 'just right'. For those of you whom I don't catch up with before Christmas, have a great one and a safe holiday and I look forward to seeing you all at the January meeting.
