Christy, Thanks so much for dropping off the plants. Am so happy to now be able to get my little garden going. Happy New Year! Karen.

Hi Christy...Mark Parisian here...Great idea to have a food jaunt!! And thanks so much for organizing it! I would be so glad to have my garden here at the houseboat community on the garden jaunt schedule. Looking forward to it.

yes you are correct about that James... i thought i'd organise the gardens first then figure out a logical time frame. but i would say that it will take most of the afternoon if we start at 1pm...

The date is Jan 25th, but I wonder if it would be good to suggest a time frame (from to) rather than the 1:00pm as noted above? But maybe you plan to do this later as the event evolves and takes shape.

Excellent idea - the Jassy Dean event is so know and respected, we would not want to be seen as competition to it in any way.

I love the definition of "jaunt"

I've changed the title from Safari as that is so closely associated with the Jassy Dean Garden Safari...

Our gardens are not too impressive, but a good guide will be able to use it as an example of ways to improve a beginners garden. So everyone is more than welcome to come and see ours at 139 Nick Johnstone Drive, Church Bay.

I am very happy for my garden and Organiponico beds at 1 Tawa St. to be part of the safari.
