"Haha @ Rex not sure about eating the flower stems... try them before you chuck them. I tried them last year steamed with a knob of butter drizzled over and they were delicious! Like asparagus almost? Once you try it you willl be a fan every year I…"
I'm hoping you still have some Yacon and water kefir. The Yacon sounds so interesting. I am in no hurry for the water kefir. Would it be possible for you to mail the Yacon to me? I live on an Island and can…"
"I read that if you throw meat scraps in your farm, rats and mice will eventually invade. I hope they don't eat your worms - that would be horrific! Lets just say they escaped are living happily in your garden somewhere. :-) Good luck! "

At the moment I have lemons, lemonaides, and loads of mint - a few lettuces and some weathered winter cabbages and silverbeet. BUT the plum tree is in blossom, the nectarines and peach trees are too and soon my cherry and apple trees will also...
Hi Anna :) Sorry i didnt let you know that your parcel arrived! Many thanx. Your bread bug was awake after a couple of feeds, hes rising at the moment for fresh afternoon bread. One question did you get your bug from the place whos information you sent? Or did you make it your self from the instructions in the second bit of info you sent? Artichokes are going in today :) im off to do it now.
i haven't forgotten you. It's coming. Thanks for asking, the bone mended ages ago - I'm told its the scar tissue that causes problem and I'll be right in 18 months. Another 4 months to go! Managed to keep the Food bank happy all season but have just run out. The leeks not big enough. Have tomatoes up on the window sill. Have seedlings of chard and pac choi potted up ready to go when they're big enough. Yakon is wonderful,eh? I've baked it, chopped it up in stews and in fruit salad. Have given heaps of pink knobs away and still will more than double production for next season. Concentrating on stuff that will travel and hold - for foodbank. Canasta lettuce from Kings is the best lettuce for that. Happy gardening!
Anna, I have found your address and realised I didn't send you the seed. I'm sorry. Life is still abit of a struggle as the broken bone is taking such a long time to mend. But I'll get you some for next season!
Yes, I have. Just know that if any are left behind they will seed profusely - not that I mind! My best crop last year was popcorn. That was easy and fun to grow. If you want some seed its not too late. Send me your address via a message.
Aargh! I've just looked up where it is and I think it's too far. I thought you were running it in Tirau! Thought I hadn't heard of Old Farm Road in the area! But you are most welcome to visit here in Tokoroa - 37 Tasman Drive. if you are down this way.
