I am not going to be able to make it tonight team. No pizza for you Charles....
Hey team, hope it goes well tonight.
Just thinking that it might be time to start planning what spring crops we want in what gardens and who will guardian them.....
I reckon soon we'll have enough comfrey on site to do this:
Hey everyone, I can make it to the working bee this weekend afterall- yus! Hope to see you all there :)
I still think we should wait until the next one to make our compost sign, but we can at least talk about it this time.
Hi old Aro friends. I've just created this page about the garden where Ping and I volunteer up here in Auckland. Just letting you know so you can see what we get up to nowadays.
Hey folks, just thought some of you might be interested after last potluck about excellent food sources for bees - we're well on the right track! http://nba.org.nz/about-bees/beneficial-plants-for-bees
I'll plant some lavendar seeds this weekend for the bank.
Hi Jessica- yes please, if you can get some for us that would be great.
Under the fruit trees is an awesome idea. I wonder if they grow ok with nasturtiums?
Hey, in relation to garlic, I have a few spare cloves of Elephant garlic that I can't fit in my own garden. Elephant garlic has giant bulbs and cloves, with a mild flavour, a lot less fiddley when cooking with it and goes a long way. I get these from my mum, who grows heaps on the farm (so much some years that she covers our yacht when drying them in the boat shed – which makes for an interesting mix of aromas when sailing). I can try hit her up for some more of these if wanted, plus some of the other varieties she grows.
From what I know... Garlic is a great companion plant for repelling aphids and other garden nasties. It benefits apple, pear and peach trees, and is friends with cucumbers, lettuce, celery, rosemary and strawberries... Under the fruit trees in the orchard? It does take some time to grow so you maybe don't want it to be in the way too much during the spring/summer planting season...
