Tomatoes are rampant, beetroot and lettuce are spent, new zealand spinach has gone mad, capsicums fruiting and flowering, pumpkins galore on the trellis ( i never knew the squat green ones were round in nature lol ) passionfruit gone to custard after an attack of the black meanies! herbs are full on with the pineapple sage displayng beautiful and sweet red vase like flowers.. the basil and mint are on the go with flower as well, the chooks have quietened down since the boys left for that chicken run in the sky. perhaps there is room now for another couple of ladies to fill the coop! (hint hint! :-) don't know what i would have done without heavy mulching and carpeting, the most i've had to do in the hottest part is to water every 3 days.

Hi Robert

Yup an oooby gathering sounds like a great idea.  Would be good to meet up with others in Waihi. I need some inspiration! The weeeds are getting me down lol.  The presentation in Waihi this week would be interesting too but I'm unable to attend due to work commitments. . Weekends are best for me.And I'd be happy to help others with their projects as well as help in mine- Many hands make light work.

* to leave kathy (or anyone else) a message you just scroll towards the bottom of their page until you see the 'comment wall' and there's a box to add a comment in ;)

Hi Robert, Welcome to this group :)

you can talk to Kathy re verges, who you'll find via the group page, she's one of the members and we had the last gathering at her place - which you probably saw the photos on that page!  you can message her via her page to get in touch.

re chickens - I saw you had a message up, but it is just on your page so I'd recommend put it on the group page.  If you scroll down to the 'comment wall' which is below the 'discussion' boxes, you can put a message and it will go out to all the members in the group.

hi Robert, Just wondering if you ever managed to get any of the requests through the Weston A Price Group? I have some milk kefir grains that I could post to you if you like? Cheers, Bridget
