Julia Sich replied to Laine's discussion Growing figs in containers in the group Food Growing Q&A
"HI Laine, oh yes I did mean 20-30mm.  Yes more holes probably would be in order to keep it a bit root bound but able to grow into the soil.  I'd love to hear a progress report on how it goes.   All the best, Julia"

Julia Sich replied to Laine's discussion Growing figs in containers in the group Food Growing Q&A
"HI Laine,  I would make the holes 20-30cm big. We drilled about 6 holes around the rubbish container as I mentioned near the bottom. If you drill holes in the bottom the fig will send roots out those holes and clog them with the roots.…"

Julia Sich replied to Laine's discussion Growing figs in containers in the group Food Growing Q&A
"HI Laine, I have two fig trees in large rubbish containers bought from Mitre 10 for $30 odd dollars each and holes were drilled in the sides up 20cm from the bottom so the bottom becomes a saucer.  They fruited really well last year as you see…"

Identifying Wild Edible Weeds/Green Smoothie Workshop

Getting to know and appreciate the weeds growing around us is a gentler approach to gardening and growing.Instead of ripping out all the weeds with contempt we learn how beneficial and nourishing they are. Here's what one workshop participant said "When I came to your workshop I had no idea that you could eat "weeds"!!  so it has been a fantastic learning curve and I have been discovering all sorts in the garden - and weeding the garden in a completely different way, so as not to remove any…See More

Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We have over 40 fruiting plants mostly in containers. Some are large containers and the trees are fruiting well. We also have raised vegetable beds made of painted pine boards. I have many varieties of plants all of whom I love. Our garden is a new section so we are starting from scratch establishing a hedge and trees. It is fun. I have a great crop of grapes this year - Albany surprise, heaps of tomatoes and harvested 7 large pumpkins today that grew along where the new hedge is growing. I also grow microgreens like wheatgrass and sunflower seedlings for green smoothies. I love it when plants like coriander and rocket seed themselves.
We have two worm farms and two 1100L rain water tanks which we installed last year 2009. I've spent this long dry summer in Tauranga hand-watering our over 190 plants in pots and others in the ground with two watering cans. I certainly kept an eye on them all!

Your Ooooby group sounds great!  We live in a housetruck in the Takaka organic community gardens, woofing and keeping an eye on the place.  There is a wee stall that locals bring their produce to sell from and regular workshops are run through the gardens.  Loving the spring feeling here too!  Some blossoms appearing and daffodils up...mmm and some delicious weeds and flowers springing up everywhere.  Excited about polyculture planting and going to try that this year for the first time.  Your new garden sounds fun :)
