Still growing - but mainly involved with River Exchange & Barter System (REBS), who have a stall at the River Traders Market every Saturday

I'm definitely still here (@ Quaker Settlement)
and growing lots. Mainly active in "Growing Under Glass" group as this is a new challenge for me. Thought of this group having/answering questions such as "how early can you put in potatoes in Whanganui"?
Do you have any specifically Whanganui questions?

For Peter:
I can't find your message here to Whanganui members. The technology has me beaten. Here's an answer anyway.

If you cover your potato foliage (shaws?) when there's a likelihood of frost you can grow potatoes all year round. But one exposure to a light frost without cover will kill them off.

I had a successful winter crop in Whanganui in 2007 but last year I took a risk on the ONE night we had a light frost in the Central City and they were stopped in their tracks.
