Would anyone like to swap some pumpkin seedlings for tomatoes or anything really

Hello there! Just discovered and joined Ooooby. Great to see a Wairarapa group. Based in Featherston, and will be looking to swap gluts when the time comes! I bought 3 kumara slips today... any tips out there for successful growing? The chap at the garden centre wasn't very enthusiastic about my chances! Thanks

It's sometimes hard to get things going with a small population. I help run the Wairarapa Green Dollar Exchange. We've bee going nearly 20 years now but we're not there yet. We do have over sixty members, our own currency with on-line banking, website, regular newsletters and public markets.
Our markets may be a way of establishing and promoting Oooby in the Wairarapa. Our members can take a stall at our markets for free ( and it's cheap to join us) while outsiders pay $5. It would be great here from any locals who would like to progress this joint-venture idea.

Hi Karen, yep, I'm still commuting, but just three days, the other two I work from home. Clare is at home with Iris still, and studying at the same time, so we are more than halfway to not commuting now.... if that makes sense. The farmers market has been growing and was really successful over summer, people like Steve the pig man and the fish people have done really well out of it and are getting good reputations as local high quality suppliers. It's cool to see people doing well by being good.

I dream of working 15 hours a week doing the money making thing and the rest of the time gardening and hanging out with Clare and Iris, it might be a way off but that time will come.

If you aren't commuting and decide to be a self employed gardener (is this something you think you will really do? I'm jealous!) we should catch up and talk about gardening and things.

Yes October will be the perfect time to get the garden going again! Not sure about the commuting, I rather fancy being self employed in my own vege plot :-) Are you still commuting these days? We really enjoyed your blog and the links by the way, thanks. Do you go to the Farmers Market at all? I wonder if it is still the same size or if it's grown this summer?

I do remember! I thought that tiny picture looked familiar. October is a perfect time for getting stuck back in to the garden. Will you be commuting again when you get back?
