  • Hi Fiona.  It was lovely to meet you and your husband and son on the weekend.  Thanks for taking the topsoil - I am so glad someone has taken some.  And thanks for the honey and plants.  Please feel free to come and get more soil if you want or rocks.  And to anyone else out there - we have loads of volcanic rocks free for removal.  Just message me and I will try to remember to check my ooooby page regularly.

  • Also Jordan, look on Trademe for dehydrator.  There are sometimes cheap ones.

  • Jordan,  i have jalapenos and asian fire chillis.  The jalapenos have gone red and interestingly have no heat in the flesh, only in the seeds.  Happy to trade seeds.  

  • Helen, do you have any Jalapeno chillis or their seeds still? I have several varieties i can trade (seed) if you want :)

  • Just wondering if anyone has an old, working dehydrator with atleast 3 trays that they dont want and wish to give away or sell? I need one, i have over 12kgs in chillis, and i want to dry as many as i can! Got half in the oven as i write this...also got apples and nectarines that i want to turn into apple chips and apple and nectarine leathers.

  • Helen, do you still have soil available, if so please  contact us on 817-6967.

I'm hoping someone out there can lend me either an electric one (so I can see how they handle my pile of sticks and decide whether I want one of my own), or a more heavy duty one (just to get the job done).
