Hi Hester,  I was wondering if you had any yacon available.  My son has a huge list of allergies and I have recently tried him on yacon, which he loved, and luckily didn't have an allergic reaction to.  I am now trying hard to get hold of tubers and plants.  Some to feed to Oscar and some to plant.  Do you think you can help us?

Thankyou for your lovely welcome Hester, as you can see it's taken me some time to write you back ... in amongst the craziness of life my daughter had her appendix burst so everything took the backburner for a while, but thankfully she's well and we're all ticking along again ... Am going to start asking questions soon about fruit trees for backyard HB gardens ... maybe you can help me too? :o)

Hi Hester, how are the cucumbers getting on? I've got one and it looks like its about to get flowers soon. We'd have some great rain here that's got everything growing well. One of the plants you sent it growing well - the catmint I think, but Giorgio couldn't resist the other (catnip?) and pulled the cuttings out and chewed them to bits! Catherine

Hi Hester - 99cents at The Warehouse. Drilled 3 large holes in each, took the handles off and am standing the buckets partially tilted ON the handles under the bucket to give them a bit better drainage. They'll do for now...and not expensive. Quite please, really LOL. Down the laundry aisle, twards the back of the shop near the laundry baskets. Lots of colours.

Hi Hester...mine is from Koanga too. And I can't remember when I bought it. I do know it was from Chantals, and they haven't had these seeds for a couple of years so..... Anyway, I have sown some to see if they will germinate, and you're welcome to some too...we can both try if you like

Hi Hester,

 

My name is Andrea Ellis and I'm a new member on ooooby, I’m in my final year of a 4 year industrial design degree at Massey University.

For our final year each student decides on a problem or an area that they would like to improve on. We then spend the entire year researching and developing this.

For my final year project I want to make sustainable living more achievable for non-property owners. One of the ways in which I believe this could be achieved is a product that allows people to grow their own vegetables.

Therefore I am messaging in the hope that you or someone you know who has experience with growing a vegetable garden could spare some time to answer a few questions it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Andrea

Thanks Hester!  I wonder if that kind of material is long lasting/does it rip easily? It's a wonder that Those Who Make Netting haven't come up with a smaller mesh...the kind that's 3m wide! Did you know the family got rid of my chooks when I broke my ankle feeding them?  They went to a good home!

What's Buzzing?
