Are you still in Oooby, I am from Mangere.

I work in James Cook and Alfriston College as a reliever, and I want to connect with the local vege growers.

I will have spare yacon soon and I have spare eggs.

I am looking for fruits.

Also I want to add goats to my livestock, and I am looking to people who may want to goat service to clean the area, or something else related to goats.

Hi Debbie, I have started a group on preserving, Preserving Your Surplus. I am having trouble getting photos on to that page. I have asked for help on this. the photos are on my page at present. I am writing up about bottling on the group page in instalments.

Hi Debbie had a super busy week at work and the small amount of spare time I had was spent shovelling sheep manure, for my fruit trees, etc, i will get on to the jar photos, now.

hi again Debbie, looked at your page. I do know how to bottle, do you have jars (2nd hand shops can be good for these) there are two typesand correspondingly two types of rings to screw the seals on with while they are hot. I can post photos of these if you like so you can know what to look for for next season?

Hi Debbie, I only have one pic (taken early last spring) of the mainly food part of my garden and now is the least attractive time. I will try and post more as the seasons change.

Hi Debbie
Your baskets inspired me to look in the local op-shop and i got 3 lovely woven bags-kete style- for a dollar each.They'll be great for harvesting.
Hope the weather is being kind to your garden.It is rather windy here.

Hi Debbie,
I'm Glad to hear all is going well with the seeds, Thanks For the Tabacco seeds. I plant for the flowers, all my seeds have failed but I haven't tried yours yet, it's the wrong time. will seed them early spring! I haven't concentrated on my veges and planting, but I hope to get my seeds and trees in the garden this weekend and mulch with pea-straw and leave for the winter. I'll see what works what dosn't. I am just starting full time work so I'll need it to take care of it's self. Just bought an old sink on trademe if you put it on legs and put a bucket under it you can have a realy easy worm farm. AND my son and I just made our own fertilizer to stew for a month so even though I am ging to spend less time in the garden hopefully It will be productive with less fuss.
all the best, let me know how yuor garden is going, Shona

That sounds ideal. I've learned how important it is to make sure you don't overdo it ... or feel guilty about what has not been done.

Hello again! You gave me the impetus to go out today to get that picture for you and ended up doing a Cook's Tour.Now my big son in Scotland can get some pictures of home, too - so many thanks.

That sounds wonderful. Where do you live and how much land do you have??

Dear Debbie, Thank you for your kind comments. I think you are doing a marvellous job. I love the square foot garden idea - and the blue containers. Are they recycling buckets?? I made a hot house out of six tallest tomato stakes from The Warehouse, three fibre glass rods and mattress bags from a furniture store (free!) Lying the stakes on the ground I bound the fibre glass rods with duct tape, ending up with three big upside-down U's. I stuck them in the ground and taped the mattress bags opened up over the top and used clip washing pegs as well. It worked quite well for a season. I could stand up inside. Then the family took pity and bought me a proper one! Now I have bound bamboos across the U's and it is a good archway for growing things up - minus the plastic of course. I will take a photo and put it in.
Congratulations on a lovely garden. It's fun, isn't it?

Hi Debbie

Dear Debbie, I met my American husband in London and we decided to move here when we got sick of the weather! I work for UNICEF and don't get nearly enough time for gardening. Just put my first ever tomato seedlings in today (the first I've grown from seed) and of course there are gale force winds today so they're looking shocked. Still, we're right at the start of the growing season, so there's time to pop to the farmers market for replacements.
I will send you some photos once I figure out how to do it. Not very computer literate.

Many thanks Debbie! Just looking at the photo's of your garden, Wow! Really impressive! What are you growning in the tubs inside your homemade 'greenhouse'? x

I've been in the states for ten years, and gardening for eight.

I have about sixty square feet in a community garden for my own personal use ... and I'm using that space to feed a couple of friends. I'm also in charge of quite large community plots ... about 400 square feet which will provide food and herbs for our community gardeners. Not much by kiwi standards, by in NYC its a real luxury. We also have a peach tree and a grape vine.
