Well the only success this year is i finally grew a cucumber, although to be fair until it was ready i thought it was an odd looking Zucchini
Tomatoes - rotting off the vine
Pumpkin - Wiped out by late frost
Raspberries - rotting on the bush and infested with tiny bugs
Corn - Doing okay-ish but getting knocked around by wind
Chooks - Getting about 1 egg a day from 3 chooks for the last couple of months

About chooks. I got some of those posts used for electric fences. ..about $30.00 for 10 at Farmland. I got some wind break material and used clip washing pegs to fence them in. Wire tent-type pegs for the bottom. They were good for shifting around to the next bit of grass. Or some lengths of plastic wirenetting from Warehouse with bamboo sticks. I used both. but you need the pins for the bottom as the little sods get out. Might work for children to?
Save your toilet rolls. They're good for planting corn which I will start to do at the end of the month. Then plant the whole thing at end of October. I plant about a dozen or 20 at a time so that i have them coming at different times. i got five plantings last year. Pak Choi is a good wee veg to plant now. It's ready to eat quicker than most veg. I plant inside, prick out and keep in a sheltered place untill they are ready to plant out, then plant really close together.
hello, again. It's a while since I've been on Oooby. I see things flicker past and saw your message.
I've found an excellent site for guidance in your vege garden
It is for NZ conditions and for our particular climate.
Hope this helps. you can choose to have them send, weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
Hi Nigel - Shavings are ready to pick up. Leave me a message tonight here on Ooooby if you want to come around and get them. I will be up till about 10.00pm if you want to get them today.
Or I can leave them at the letterbox for you to collect tomorrow. I am off tomorrow to the Coromandel for some Land Based Game Fishing!!
62 Neal Street
Just leave a couple of bags in the Letter box - I may or may not be home.
I will leave you a note here when you can pick them up.
Drop me around some bags (in the letter box is ok) and I will fill them up for you.
Are you interested in a backyard beekeeping seminar at my place Saturday 26th - I am getting in to it and the lady that will deliver the info is president of beekeeper group in Hamilton.
Just looking to get enough people to get it going
I have a very messy back yard to get sorted this winter. We now have a chicken run, so we will wait until June/July when the Litchfield poultry farm has some more Hens available - might even look at a couple of cute Bantams also - ex Trademe.
