Hi everyone


Just wondering if anyone has any quinces that are not being used.  We are in Paparimu, and would be happy to collect.

Hi All

My Husband and I have purchased a small block of bare land in Bombay that we are busy busy busy with planting out in fruit trees and vegetables, as well as a house (eventually).

we are using companion planting, Herbal leys and tons and tons of mulch to try to grow the most incredible, nutrient dense and flavourful foods for our family and friends.

We are currently looking for someone to 'foster' a calf and a piglet for us - to grow them for food eventually - I just can't do it myself as I would never send them off for 'dispatch' as I'm a bit of a sook... lol

Anyway, we're growing all heritage varieties of apples, quinces and pears, not to mention cherries, apricots, peaches and nectarines. I'm very much looking forward to any fruit this year as it will be a blessing.

We have plenty of grapefruit on the tree if anyone wants to pick up from Half Moon Bay, Highbrook Industrial area (near East Tamaki) or Ellerslie. I can't eat them because I'm on the pill (grapefruit interact with the meds) and hubby isn't eating them fast enough...

Hi all, I have heaps of grapefruit about to come ripe as well as lemonade limes if anybody wants some... it is finally warming up a bit and I am looking forward to getting out and stuck into the garden right and proper...

I have a tree full of juicy oranges would like to swap for veggie seeds - cauli, broccoli, kale or any heritage veggie seeds (just a teaspoon would be enough).
