Lynn thanks ever so much for your advice, it’s a great help. What a wonderful idea the spray is. Will put the plan into action immediately.
Thanks again and best wishes

Hi Lynn
Just read your post about trimming the lower leaves back from your tomato plants. Am growing tomatoes for the first time this year and they have gone a bit crazy. I have been taking out the little shoots that appear at the between the main stem and the off shoots but didn’t know I was supposed to trim back leaves at the base as well. Will it kill them if I do it now as they are quite well established and how far up the stalk should I take the leaves/stems off?
Any advice you can offer would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Lucy

Thanks Lynn. And Todd's not quite 'hubby' ... not for another 4 months anyway! I'm hoping to make some home made preserves for the wedding favours so all fingers and toes are crossed for a good tomato crop this year! If that fails then I have a supply of plums from my brother so can always do something with them instead. Tomato's are much nicer though!

Well we are sort of Banks Peninsula, but sort of not, we are on Kaitorete Spit which has the lowest rainfall of all New Zealand I am told, it is on shingle and a very young piece of land, so exceptionally free draining and summer tempertatures up to 40C (we have seen 42), so yup desert is the best word to describe it.

Thanks Lynn. It was really enlightening seeing your wonderful garden the other day - really your "vegetable box" is the same size area I have and mine currently contains....one parsley plant. Another few days and I have a week off work, when I'm planning to get stuck in to change that. We do have plenty of fruit trees, passionfruit, grapes, and walnuts, but I suspect none produces to the quality and quantity possible, so am looking forward to getting more ideas. Jam is lovely btw.

Just had a look and the events notices are right at the very bottom of the main page.

Thanks Lynn. I'll check whether the other Lyn still wants to have it and if not it would be great to have it at your place. Otherwise the one after/

Hi Lynn,
Thanks for the link I now understand what is meant by the SFG technique. Have been thinking about suitable materials for a raised garden and I want to stay away from treated timber. Could you see any harm in using concrete flagstones as walls for a raised garden? I should think that they are fairly inert, any thoughts?

hello Lynn, it's probably in one of the discussions or groups that we both follow. I bought my frames from Mick at easy-veg http://easy-veg.co.nz/afawcs0145787/CATID=20/page=1/cloche_frames.html who also sells worm farms and raised beds. He will post to you in the North Island so just go to his web page or leave a comment on his ooooby page

Hi Lynn : ) I made that lemon balm lemonade and it was such a hit with the family, will have to go around to my friends to get more lemonbalm as i dont think my wee patch is going to cope with the onslaught he he. Lynn, have you had any success getting rid of the psyllid? Ive discovered the wee varmit it on my tomato plant and dont really want to spray chemicals on it....thinking it might just have to go as dont want it spreading to the rest of my garden. : )

It is funny Lynn but the only basil that is doing well is in the little raised garden in the courtyard. Maybe I haven't been watering the basil in the main garden enough, though I do have an irrigation system there and I am using it.

Good on you Lynn for the freecycle post. Can you let me know what sort of swap you arrange? If you don't mind that is. I wonder if it would be the same each time. Its hard to know what it is worth.
