Hi Marjolijn

Thought I would drop you a quick note - I am running another TopBar workshop on the 27th Nov at the Herb cafe/nursery in Whatawhata - if you are keen, drop me a line and I will fill you in on all the details

Hello! Thanks for the contact. Some edamame coming your way in the next 48 hours. I have many photos now of my garden and the condition its in. That's the only way I can see it...send someone out with a camera. Oh, boy! After three months of deglect. Still feeding us though. My husband has learned to harvest. I draw the position and description and he seeks and finds. Now venturing on to a single crutch! Hope envelope arrives safely.

Hello! Yes, that's sounds interesting! Kali has contacted the lady on good morning and she is sending me some of her seed of the Tangerine Gem. I could send some on to you if you wish. Have you tried Painted Lady runner beans. They have a pretty flower and are nicer than scarlet runner. They produce for ages. Nice to contact you!
