Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
Climbing Beans (10+ varieties), Tomatoes (5+ varieties), Sweetcorn, Cucumber, Peas, Choko, Radishes, Carrots, Pak Choi, Broccoli, Potatoes, Rocket, all sorts of Lettuce, Strawberries, Raspberries, Naranjila, Figs, Grapes, Olives, Guava, Broad Beans, Silverbeet, Spinach, Spring Onions, Capsicums, Eggplant, Zucchini, Rockmelon, Watermelon, Pumpkin, Squash, Cress, Tamarilos, Kale, trying companion planting/beneficial insect attraction/medicinal herbs with Sunflowers, Marigolds, Mina Lobata, Lavender, Nasturtium, Echinacea, Wildflowers, Phacelia Tanacetifolia, Cleome, Foxglove, Calendula, Borage and also Comfrey for the compost, and trying Blue Lupins and Mustard as a green manure cover crop...
And though i'm not growing them exactly, i'm collecting copious amounts of fallen leaves from a nearby park and surrounding streets for leaf mould/potting mix down the the track...

I've challenged myself to use only found/second-hand/re-used/re-configured materials in the garden wherever possible... and it's almost always possible. Half a day clearing a friends' bamboo patch and the resulting stakes have proved invaluable... Now there's bamboo everywhere. Also i'm gently cultivating my own... Luckily i have an understanding/uncaring landlady (though she won't allow chickens as she lives over the back fence... Curses!)

Hey Adam...just thought I'd let you know we're having a meeting this Saturday about the Green Screen (the enviro-doco evenings).  Can't remember if you said you were interested, but if you are we're meeting at Café Jafa by Grey Lynn School on Saturday morning 10.30am  It won't be more than an hour or so, as I have other things to do on Saturday.


See you there maybe, Char

This is the first time I have browsed through your photos. You're really going for it! Would you be up for a group visit to explore what you have going on?

So glad you enjoyed the tour. I had a good time giving it. I will try and get the photo from Joanna at New Lynn Primary and put it on ooooby. They were so cute and proud. Thanks for the feedback.
