"I made the jelly this weekend and I think it's FAR better than feijoa jam. Unfortunately the yield is also far less, so you need a big pot full of feijoas to make more than a couple standard jam jars."

"When I'm running out of time to deal with feijoas I just scoop them out and freeze in bags, you can use them to replace bananas in cake and muffin recipes too."

Sunflower seeds to eat - which ones?

Does anyone know which variety of sunflower seeds are safe to eat? We grew tall reds and short yellows this year and the seeds are ready to save. Many thanks

Hello Pigeon Valley - Gill?.
I noticed your note on Market Stall Growers. I think we might be able to organise something. Would it be worth having a chat?

Hi Gill - firstly, thank you for letting us know you have struggled with getting a calendar item up. If after another shot at it you still have trouble - just give me a call 372 8737 and I'll help. The photo is lovely, but it would be nice if it was of you and then you could share lots of pics of your garden on your page. The personal face shots seem to help build the rapport.

Welcome to you at Pigeon Valley, that news article has connected a lot of people! Do have a look at the welcome page if you havent already. The site is new and will grow and evolve quickly in response to our vision and your needs...

... so I am very interested in finding out what are you hoping to get/find/see/learn/do through this online part of Ooooby?

And if you need help getting your photo up here, please sing out. To get you started on that, you can go to "My Page" and on the left hand side you'll see "Change My Photo"
