Trying new strawberry varieties this year - the shop bought, but nameless variety that I planted in pots in July are flowering, the ones that I transplanted from my mothers garden have never done that well - they get one mre years grace, then I am tossing them down the bank! And I planted some more today that have been given to me by my friend in the Wairarapa.....pajero's apparently - and they are supposed to be vigorous and prolific - I wait in hope....

The spuds I planted in June… Continue

Hi! Fantastic thanks. We have just collected some (we'd already arranged a whole heap of collections out that way) but it's great to know you are so local. And yes, we'd love to swap garden visits. Will be in touch soon. Thanks heaps.

Sounds great Nikolien. I need first to take a trip to the rubbish dump to empty all the trash out of the back of the ute. I'll be in contact once I have done that. I've got some old compost bags and sacks which I will bring. Be in touch.

I'm interested in getting some horse manure for my garden. It has been fallow for a number of years and is very low on organic matter. I live in Mount Vic and can pick up the manure from where ever is convenient.

Hi Nikolien! How neat to see you on Ooooby - I'm a trainee ECE teacher (2nd year) and bought your book on schema a couple of months ago. Great book, and it's really opened up my eyes to another aspect of children's learning. :)

Haha! :) Thank you for that Nikolein! Even though we live in different locations you are right about the "muddy fingers" I get them all the time! Have a wonderful Weekend!
