I still have some choko if anyone wants to give them a go - something different and fun.

Yay got to chookins last weekend - from Lichfield Poultry - on the main road - we have been getting an egg a day since from the two girls - they are starting to grow new feathers on the bald spots - they are ex caged hens- Chicken Licken and Railey (the girls named them!!)

Hi Robyn - Yes you more than welcome to stop and collect some Choko - I may have to hide my embarrasment of a garden though!! - it is a work in progress - I never seem to have time or money at the same time!! We will be around home this weekend

I'd love one to try again. My plant is three years old and produced nothing this year. Maybe I could call in?

Hi Kathy - Sorry I only get to check this site on a very adhock basis. Hope all is well for you in Tirau - I have a very bare winter Garden - are you interested in growing Choko? it is a vine that used to be common way back in the day... google it and let me know if you want to try a plant as I am keeping some "seed fruit" to grow in the coming spring.

Hi South Waikato members, I live in Tirau, and am really into swapping for fruit or veges, as I have 3 little kids who are currently eating about $70 of fruit a week, ouch. I have raw milk to swap if anyone is interested. I have just start fermenting foods as well and would be keen to met others who are interested.

Oh, brilliant! I thought you'd packed up and gone!
What would you like.
I have a lot of runner beans Wonder of Venice, a nice yellow flat bean that doesn't get stringy. Different kinds of pumpkin, strange seeds like yam beans/jicama (which I'm a bit scared of now!) inca veg of various kinds. If you ever get down to Tokoroa I'd love to meet you and you could choose and take home what you would like.
I'm still trying to get Ooooby in the paper - had two attempts. Did you see anything in any Putaruru papers? I am quite envious of other places with lots of people doing great things!
Look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Robyn- Yes still here - Extremely busy with work at the moment - I manage 20 staff at a sawmill in Putaruru and it get crazy from Sept till we close at the end of December for Holidays.
Yes I would love to have any surplus seeds you have.... I had just gone out this weekend and bought some bean and lettuce seeds!!
I have Broccoli seedlings which I have just pricked out into trays to grow on a bit, silverbeet and beetroot seedlings coming on also.
Planted some sweet corn a week ago - seeds were up in 4 days. and also have some onions in as well.

Planted Tomatoes along the garden beside the house on Labour weekend along with cucmbers - trying a Tamarillo as well - under the eaves of the house, we'll see if we can keep it safe from the frosts.

Hi! Are you still there? I have heaps of seeds of all sorts and there is always too many in a packet. If you are thinking of buying - ask me first, if you want.
I have some Peruvian Chili - a perennial, if you would like to try it.
