Tell us about your garden and what you're growing

We are developing a 5,500 sq block at 430m elevation near Egmont National Park, as an organic/permaculture property. We bought it in November 2010, so its early days yet. Read all about that at http://www.permaculture.geek.nz In the meantime we have 809 sq section near CBD. A few established fruit trees. Successfully growing potatoes, yams, kumara, courgettes/marrows, snow peas, sweetcorn, silverbeet, cabbages kamokamo, kikuyu and weeds. Struggling with beans, tomatoes, capsicum and several other crops this year. Still learning heaps. The garden is taking a bit of a back seat while we prepare the house for sale.

  • HI Richard, I have some tatsoi seeds I could send you some, and maybe some other things if you are interested :)

  • Thanks for posting the Avaaz petition, Richard. I was just going to, and saw that you already had.
  • Sounds oooobylicious!!
  • Hey Richard,
    I'm looking forward to your produce for the Ooooby Stall on Thursday !
    You can drop it into the Environment Centre or the Inglewood library anytime before 2pm, or straight to the Ooooby Stall, preferably before 3pm.
    Nga mihi, Kama
