"Hi Lotte I have a lot of experience with that beastly grass... trust me, I've broken several garden implements battling the stuff. The only solution as far as I can see is some serious digging... and more digging. My technique is to first kill…"

Black plastic.

So, Paekakariki growers, I come to you for ideas... what are your theories on black plastic and kikuyu grass? I've made a couple of raised beds about a foot above the ground with bricks, and had filled one with a mix of compost and topsoil before a neighbour dropped by and offered me some black plastic to line the other two beds - he said it was the only way to go, otherwise that kikuyu grass would take over before my eyes.But lo! Things aren't really growing in those lined beds, while the…See More

"Hey Jamie, glad you like it. I can't remember the ingredients exactly but I think there was ginger. It was a dud batch so if you like that then you will love the feijoa. Congrats on the eggfest. Hopefully they lay well come spring. Ka…"

Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
Rocket, spinach, lettuce, broad beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts (hopefully the red ones too), lemons, cauliflower, dill, parsley, thyme, garlic, nasturtium, silverbeet and carrots. Grand plans for summer involving tomatoes, artichokes, chillies, cucumber, zucchini and eggplant, pending our current lease being renewed. We've moved house every January for the last four years, so I haven't grown a tomato since that glorious summer of 2007/8 when it seemed to easy.
I've preserved a fair bit in my time, though my freezer is currently home to a lot of fruit I haven't got round to doing yet. I've been more interested in putting fruit in gin this year, we'll see how that goes in a month or so. Dangerous? Quite possibly. Baking is more my forte. I'm rather partial to quince chutney.
