Hey Lynsey...don't people say that milk can help with mildew...

On another note! Hi everyone, happy new year!

We've got out first working bee of the year this coming /Sunday 15th, hope to see you at the Aro Valley Community Center at 10am. This will be followed by our first potluck meeting on Monday 23rd and Lynseys. Address details were sent out in the last email. If you are not on the email list but would like to be email us at arogardener@gmail.com!

Also ... a question, any organic solutions to this problem? My flatmate is looking after my tomatoes that are in pots while I'm away:

"They are looking very very sad after all this intense wind we have been having, but they also seem to have developed some sort of agressive fungus/blight (?) that is attacking the stems and making them wither from the top down. I haven't seen tomatoes get this before and am not sure what it is. Any suggestions? 

If I cut the infected parts out, there wouldn't be much tomato left (and the wind has done a number on breaking pieces off already)."

Is this powdery mildew? Probably hey? Any ideas welcome.... Cheers :)

I'll definitely be there at the bee on the 15th! Hooray looking forward to it. Hope to see you there Chris.

Hello Chris, sorry if we didn't get back in touch. This is a quiet time of year for KOTA with most people away. Did you receive the December email with minutes of our last meeting? If not let me know and I'll send it to you. We're looking for people to water our gardens from 10 - 15 Jan. Our next working bee is Sunday 15th. We meet at the A.V. Community Centre around 10 am and garden until about midday. I won't be there on 15th but can show you the ropes before that if you like.   Lynsey

Hi there, 

I posted something a while ago but I never followed it up. I've joined the blog and the email list. Is this all I need to do to stay in the loop? Does anyone know when the next working bee is?

Thanks allot,

Merry Christmas a nga iwi o te aro!

Thanks team for the card. Our little man is doing well, certainly looks bigger than when he came out. Starting to coo and smile. We love him.

Have a great summer, especially in the gardens.

Wayne, Ping and Shi Ming

we certainly couldn't handle 80.... but we could probably find homes for 20? I could take some at my whare too so maybe if you get 30 to the secret garden and whatever we can't plant there I'll take home :)


Comment by Charles Barrie on December 14, 2011 at 10:56am

If not maybe I could pick them up from you sometime

There's a 2m x 1.5 m  domestic glass house available free to a good home.... do we have a good home for it? I'm thinking not at the moment, but thought I'd check :)
