Waiheke Island Cheesemaking Course, by the lovely (and knowledgable!) Katherine Mowbray. Hosted by Owhanake Bay Estate

3 Cheeses from 1 bucket of milk with a 'bit' of mascarpone on the side.
Halloumi, Feta, Ricotta and Mascarpone, Sunday 24 June 12pm - 3:30pm, $120 per person, with tastings of boutique NZ cheeses for a light snack, plus some delicious Owhanake wines.

Katherine says "bring your friends and learn the skills together. Bring community back into your kitchens", which fits perfectly with our Island philsophy, and definitely something we are keen to support. I've been to one of Katherine's courses before and thoroughly recommend it.

For bookings (and more info) please email Katherine on katherinemowbray@clear.net.nz

I'm running a workshop series on food growing for apartment dwellers, starting this Thursday. If you know anyone who lives in the central city who's keen on growing food, they can sign up for the workshops here: https://secure.irie.co.nz/ParnellTrust/Parnell-Community-Centre-Cla... ('Gardening for Balconies', down near the bottom). Cheers!

I planted 5 spaghetti squash seeds to see if they would grow. They did. Unofrutnately, I have no room for them. Would anyone like them? I'm in Eden Terrace.

I'm currently ripping out agapanthus. What's the best way to get rid of the corms so that they don't resprout? I have kilos and kilos of them.

Also cannas available. Salmon-coloured flowers and deep red/mahogany leaves.

I sow and plant beetroot all year round on waiheke. i like the cylindrical variety and 'bulls blood' for dark red leaves.

Hi Mike Beetroot can be planted this month in Auckland and warm areas take a look at my group what to do this month for monthly sugestions of garden chores as well as a list of flowers and veg seeds/seedlings to plant each month

Thanks for that, I'll put a reminder in my calendar to prune olive tree early spring. Cheers.

 

Can someone give me advice on Beetroot?

I would like to plant some now, but I've read conflicting stuff on when to plant. I'm in Auckland (Pakuranga) and have a raised vegie bed with very good compost/soil.
Should I give it a go? any variety recommendations? or seed brand?

Cheers.

Hi Mike Yes Olive trees can and should be pruned to tidy them up prune out some of the inside branches and any branch that could rub another branch once the inside branches are pruned for airation then clip any branches that look out of place or make the tree look untidy your major pruneing jobs should be left until late winter/early spring when the trees groth has slowed

Does one prune olive trees? I have one a few years old in my back yard. Its a bit scraggily. Should I prune it?
