I would like to connect with you in regards to heritage potatoes. My partner and I are maintaining around 30 NZ heritage varieties and this season will find it hard to keep them all going. We know of the work you do and were wondering if you could help. Please let me know if you are interested, and I will send a list of varieites we would like to pass on for this season.
You're a true inspiration Robyn! Listening to your interview on national radio and watching your videos has totally changed my view on gardening. I've put your vids etc on my blog in the hope that my readers will be inspired also. Keep up the good work! We hope to come down to southland from geraldine oneday to see you.

Thanks for your comment Robyn. I enjoyed seeing your video too. Yep we don't realise how fast the growth is comparatively. The bananas have been more successful than I imagined. Now I don't know why everyone up here doesn't grow them!
Hi Robyn, hope you dont think im rude but i have a question and couldnt find anybody else to ask.
My husband and i have just bought our first section :) come complete with small orchard of apples and peaches. The peaches are ripening now and i notice there is quite a few with a sap on them, i found some info about peach borer but get the impression the secretion is jelly like around the trunk, the sap i have is hard and clear. I cant find any sap around the trunk or branches, just where the fruit joins the tree. Any ideas would be thoroughly appreciated, these trees are apparently between 30-40 years old and i have started preparing the ground to plant young replacements this winter and i dont want to spread a possible disease. The damaged fruit that was no longer edible i have thrown into a rot bucket to drown any possible intruders.
Is it good or bad form to recommend a blog here?
Taking the chance ... here's the blog I write. I post 3 or 4 times a day and on a variety of things, some eco, some political, some local Deep South) and some national/international. The 'nurse logs' post might interest you all...
