Hi Lynn. Home today. I'd love some plum sauce. Our plum tree died a while back. Early afternoon?

Hi Lynn,

I received your seeds today so I'm happy!  Thank you :O).  I've not seen seeds of calendular before...lil curly pig tail seeds, really cute hehe. I'm looking forward to getting them in this spring :O)

Hey Lynn, the black potatoes are called urenika maori potaotes which are waxy when small & floury when large.  They need a long growing season & an ex keeper & taste real good too.  i bought them from Kaiwaka Organics last year. 

The black corn however I bought in a health/glutenfree shop right here in Whangarei although I have seen them in Kaiwaka Organics as well. They are from Chantal Organics and organically grown in the Hawks Bay.  I bought 1kg of seeds, more than enough...too much actually but for $6 it sure was a bargain hehe. I'd love to send you some if you want some Lynn?

The plan was to ground them down for flour but instead I decided to have a go at growing them to see really if they were viable & they are!  I grew some red strawberry corn too which are so beautiful to look at that i can't bring myself to actually eat them hehe.  This red corn plus heaps of other coloured corn was bought from Koanga Institute which I am sure going to have a crack at growing next year!  I would love some of your armish pumpkin seeds please.  I've never grown pumkin of any kind  before so I'd love to give yours a try.  I am also going to grow red kuri pumpkin from koanga institute.  The place where I am gowing to grow them is slowly being built up of compost consistency & chook scratchings.

Hey Lynn, I love reading what you've been getting up to in your garden.  You somehow motivate me into getting out there too if only for a little while.   I've been feeling really sluggish to work outside for some months now & when I look out the window & see all those little  jobs becomming bigger ones, it gets quite daunting.  However, today is the day... for starting small, weeding small sections at a time.  Next year, i'd love for you to explain the process of drying your herbs as I'd like to do the same. I felt for ya when the birds got your onion seedlings...it bought back the memories when it happened to my strawberry corn. Sheer frustration.  Keep writting Lynn & have a great day! :O)

you are a busy girl Lynn, I'd like to look in your pantry cupboard in the winter! My mum used to make shelves full of preserves when I was little, I remember her buying boxes of golden queen and blackboy peaches until it became uneconomic. Living in Hawkes Bay must present great opportunities. you can have a mallowpuff , did you grow the marshmallow yourself? lol

Hi Lynn, I've been reading some of your comments about Kefir milk grains for making youghurt in one of the groups  which have been of real interest to me (since I've never heard of it)  and I knew that I had read something about kefir water grains somewhere but can't think for the life of me where.  Do you think they would be similar? I will do some more research on it later today.

Oh, well that's something I didn't know with adding your tomato leaves to your liquid compost.  I have one of those going too and boy oh boy you're so right about the smell haha! Inside mine, I have comfrey, fish guts & fish bones. That will also save on hundreds of wee tomato seedlings popping up every which way too. Your photos of your garden are stunning by the way! :O)

Thank you Lyn, you've been very informative.   I am growing green apple cucumbers & am only now starting to devour them as they ripe on the vine but so far it is only one or two every few days so I am definately going to give this milk method a go now.  I too believe in the 'old way' & odd methods because at the end of the day.....if it works, who cares what it may look like aye! haha.

I followed a piece of advice you gave someone else about taking the leaves off the bottom of your tomato plants because I too was only taking the laterals off. I guess the theory is so the leaves don't shade the tomatoes that are growing underneath perhaps? cheers jane.

Hi lyn, just reading the "wat to do today group", I find myself interested in your milk spray.  The other day my son's friend (14yrs old) said that his grandfather used to tip milk on his watermelons and every year he always had heaps plus they were huge & juicy. Is this the same reason for having loads of cucumbers?  I am growing cucumbers & watermelons amongst heaps of other veges myself but growing food is still a learning curve to me as it is for many so I am interested in methods that may sound odd but work.

cheers Jane.

Hi Lynn

 

Your milk spray what are the portions of milk and water? Did you spray just for mildew or because they were sickly looking?  Sorry I can only find your success post.  My courgettes and gerkhins are very small but flowering.  The flowers just fall off.  It sounds as though your milk spray might be useful.

 

Many thanks

 

Yvonne

HI Lynn, yes I'd like some sage seed, thankyou. what else do you have, and do you want anything?

Yep-another 4.00 am wake up. Imagine thousands of woman of a similar age sitting at their computers wide awake in the wee small hours, we could make a club.

Well it is colder down here. Having fun? Yes I think so, The year has been hard work but successful. I have found holiday work which is good. I am just started to pick strawberries now, with only a few plants, jam isn't on the menu. Hopefully next year I can expand the numbers.

Thank you for your latest post about Christmas presents Lynn, you have given me ideas on what else I can make for presents, apart from pesto and feta cheese.
