Chris Hamilton commented on Pete Russell's group Waiheke Island NZ
"Please come get plums from our tree, it's absolutely laden. 64 Ocean Rd, Surfdale (just down from the SPCA). The number's on the letterbox, but ignore the other numbers in the street - they're not very sequential. We're the house…"

Chris Hamilton commented on Janet Luke's group Poultry in Urbania
"Hi Kelly, that's so sad! We've lost chooks (kids pets too) to dogs as well. Another approach besides fortification is ensuring there's somewhere in their enclosure where they can roost out of reach from dogs, e.g. a tree. Keeping away…"

Chris Hamilton replied to Jackington's discussion Ginger beer plant in the group Food Growing Q&A
"I agree, no need for reserving or adding sultanas when you divide the plant. Also I keep the jar covered with calico & it still works fine once it's going"

Chris Hamilton replied to Jackington's discussion Ginger beer plant in the group Food Growing Q&A
"I've never used a plant as described on that page, but have a recipe which uses sultanas to start the ferment - you leave it for a few days & then feed sugar & ginger each day - this is the 'plant'. Should I hunt out the…"

Hi Chris,
The cake bug is ready to be made into cake tomorrow - would you like me to drop it off? give me a call or text 021 444 134. Cheers, Ursula.
