"I take it then Rex that you have a new way of beating the birds. The little beggars are giving my perpetual spinach a hiding at the moment. Am going to get the netting out today. Am wondering if the coloured silverbeet would be less inviting to…"

"I had a fantastic year with eggplant last year. My later zucchini did really well too. Unfortunately my tomatoes didn't cope with the neglect and dryness when we were away on holiday. I am hoping for a much better year this year. Have ordered…"

Sheryl Kitchen left a comment for Janine Williams
"Sorry. Janine I can't remember if I thanked you for the parsnip seeds. I have been away on holiday and had this horrible thought that I hadn't been in touch. Got back in the dark so have no idea what state the garden is in."

"Rang the water carrier yesterday to see what the wait time is. Three days isn't too long so can keep watering the garden. I have rocket popping up in my lawn. Not needing to mow at the moment so can pick it before it gets trimmed off. Have a…"

We too have grandchildren - 3 and a step. Two are here at the moment - we've been for a swim and will soon be off to take them up to Bryant Home (called something different these days) for a week of camp. It would be cool to catch up when you're down. Our number is 82five798zero.

Welcome indeed! We were just talking about you guys the other day when there was a discussion about computers, and learning to use them back in the prehistoric days. I should add that I have only been 'Cally' for the last 8 or 9 years - and for the first 12 years of my life. In between, including when you knew me, I was Carol. Mother of Greg, Steven, Simon & Jeffrey.

I had lunch with Eileen on Tuesday and she, Jo and Jo's 3 kids are coming out here in a couple of weeks for a visit - Eileen brought the kids out  a while ago and they have been asking to come again - with ducks, chooks, goats and bush with a stream, it's heaven for little kids.

I'm not visible on Ooooby much - when I want to know something, I usually find it here without asking - someone has usually been here before.
