  • I'm in urgent need my harvestmaid dehydrator has burnt out on us and we rely heavily on dehydrated foods.I have some preserves still to do. And being a single parent on an invailds benefit my chances of getting one are slim to none at all. If you please see one lying around thatbis unwanted un used and unloved please think of us or even one that we may be. Able enough to scrape the money together to get, we , my boys and I would be so greatful.
    In hope

  • Hi Tony:

    Noticed that you also reside in Flaxmere. I am looking into self sufficiency and living off the land. Noticed you had an interest in hydroponics - I am looking into aquaponics. Might be great to catch up for a cuppa and exchange notes, if you are keen. Riaz

  • Hey Tony, thanks for posting the note about the Takaje manual vacuum pump. I'm interested in knowing more about these. Could you post a link to the seller's website? Ta and cheers


  • Hi Tony, thanks for the warm welcome. Cheers
  • HI Tony, I have seed of a red poppy available (see prtrait in my photos) I'd like a few of the red sweetpea seeds if you have some spare
  • Hi Tony,

    Very true. Sounds like a sad state of affairs. I wonder what will be next? Still I'm sure a good many will grow what they want anyway.
  • Hi Tony, the cost of food was intially why I got into gardening. None of our kids are interested in gardening, although I have managed to change the perceptions of a few people at work. A couple now have gardens and a few chickens.
