Their Lyttleton house survived but Giulio's restaurant is wrecked.

Hi Fionna, Thanks for responding.  I'd love some yacon, but if you think it's not the right time you are the boss!  I am very interested in the Jerusalem artichokes too, anything I can feed Oscar and pass onto the group would be brilliant.  

Do you mind giving me your number so I can call you for a chat or if you don't mind you could call me. 09 2783736.

Looking forward to chatting to you.

Hi Fiona,  I was wondering if you would know where I can get hold of some yacon tubers.  My son has several severe food allergies and I have recently tried him on yacon, which was a success.  I'm now trying to get hold of some more so I can grow and dehydrate them before the winter.  Thanks!

I've got 2 yacon plants with great masses of roots, last time I looked. As yet I've only had a little taste. Robyn kindly gave me the original pieces of root.

Hi Fionna

I really enjoyed your article on yakon-very informative. Now I just need to use some : )

Hi Stephen, I wrote a long-winded reply to this last week but it doesnt seem to be here. In short, yes, I would be interested. Cheers

Fiona what we're looking to do is follow someone from home.. heading down to the stall to do a trade - i.e trading a couple of pumpkins for a bag of carrots and a turnip. That's the aspect we're mostly interested in.
We're just planning at the mo but would be interested in being a part of it? You'd be great seeing as you've been selling things from day one.

Hi Fionna...I'm glad you like it. I borrowed it from a website and adapted it a little. I too am writing a book and will include this recipe (and variations) in it. Perhaps if you mention it is a borrowed recipe, it would be fine, hon. After all, I posted it on Ooooby, so there's no particular copyrights, I suppose. Just as long as you are also aware about me going to use it in my book too! hehe

I LOVE your photos. What a beautiful garden. I am in a small rented property, and have very limited space. But I am gradually converting what is available into very productive, food producing space. I have only been here a short while, and it's a challenge and an expense...but getting there. I can't wait for the day I can afford a property with a bit of land.

Hi Fiona, fantastic work last week at the GLFM, I am keen to hear how it goes this week. Spending time with my little one today.
