Hiya Brian,

Hiya Brian, Would be great to catch up with you & see your place. Will ring you in the next few weeks & make a time. Just cruise back anytime you need more grass, it just keeps growing....K

I've been getting the box for about 3 months. It's been great as my section is quite shady & a bit shambolic (I may have bitten off more than i can handle right now..)& the vege garden thing doesn't always happen. I tend to do it in fits & starts. If they send you weird stuff, they send recipies as well which is great. I've gone to trialling fortnightly boxes. Weekly is too much for me. The fruit is fantastic!

Hiya Brian,

I completely understand the avoiding work thing, i'm in that place right now. Will talk to my neighbours this weekend. I'm sure they will be fine, they are very relaxed about most things...call me next week if you feel like scything..8172906. Kirsty

Just about sums it up really... Hey good pictures.

Hi Brian, lt was lovely to catch up with you both on Sunday. l am having to work today so won't be able to come visit. Will contact you about another time. Thanks for mentioning the gate latch as it has been annoying me but too many other things to think about. After you left l went and got a small thick nail and hammered it in. Lo and behold - instant fix after all this time.
You caught me by surprise when you asked about any jobs. l have 2 windows in aluminium frames from when l got some double glazing done that l would like to make cold frames out of but don't know quite where to start. Would really appreciate some input of your knowledge. l'll be in contact soon. Take care Jenny

Hi Brian. I have deleted the glasses photos as they are not food growing or local food related. Maybe you could correspond directly with him via email or another platform? You are a valued member so I hope you appreciate the need for this. Cheers, Pete.

Hi Brian, I put the photos up of the sunglasses, I dont know really anything about them the only thing I could find on them was your reproductions, thats why I wanted to contact you. Can you tell me anything about them? I am 100% sure they are authentic. I found them with an embroidered handkerchief that has the Union Jack, Lady Liberty and the American Flag, that says "A souvegnir of the Great War" I want to sell them but have no idea of the value, if you can help it would be greatly appreciated, you can find them on my page under my photos, thanks much.

Here is a good start:
http://www.genhydro.com/genhydro_US/quicktips/OrganicHydroponicArticle.pdf

I believe my hydroponic produce to be better than "organic" produce. Simply because I know that a lot of people will resort to something that is not considered "organic" if faced with losing their entire crop. Even spraying liquid soap on them. I don't do that. If I get an infestation...I don't get infestations of any pests. My grow room is fed 99.9999% pure air with a hepa filter. My water is filtered and my Nutes are all natural...nothing made from oil. If that's not as close as you can get to organic, or at least "naturally grown," I'll eat a bug!

Hey Brian,
Hydroponic Nutes have changed greatly in the past 20 years, for the better. I like using dry since I can order it in bulk. There are many to choose from in liquid form with many additives to boost growth.

Hi Brian. Would you be interested in teaching a 20-30 minute square foot gardening workshop at EcoDay on Feb 28th? It is wonderful event we put on here at EcoMatters. I would supply all the materials you need. How do you feel about that?

Glad to hear 'Yellow' is back. Gosh it doesn't take long for them to forget who belongs. Leave it after the New Year and l should have quite a bit of bottling done. Christmas wishes to you and Ruth. All the best, Jenny

Hello! One bucket with handle and lid. Fill bucket with good soil. I put some horsh halfway in, also some rain gel pellets to hold moisture. Fill to top. Put on lid. Turn over and make a hole about 2" inches across - big enough to get your fingers in to plant. Plant tomato and wait! After about three weeks the tomato will have taken hold. Carefully turn over and hang. Take lid off. Plant herbs or whatever on top (I did the whatever this year!) Leave the soil just shy of the top so that water won't fall out. Water every other day but not so much that it dribbles out the bottom. Would love to see what you do!
Love your chookies. What a smart home they have.

Hi Brian, sorry to hear about 'Yellow'. could she have been taken by a passer by? How is your garden going. l have now enough bottles for four gardens and have edged the first garden making 2 smaller ones out of 1 bigger one. l am pleased with the results. Everything is coming on but the weather is crazy and my veges seem to be quite late. My black hen decided to crow on Sunday but so far not again. hope you and Ruth are both well. l'm busy exploring having a bee hive with 2 others and we will probably build one next year. Should be fun.

Hi Brian. Thanks for the vermiculite advice - don't think I replied earlier, but anything's possible with this granny! I don't pop into the site much...hope your chook house went up fine and the chooks are roosting and producing eggs well.
Cheers
Pip

hi Brian, you are welcome to some sawdust but with all the rain it has got wet and i don't know if any of it is dry. i have got dry hay though so you could start with that if you would like some.

Hi. Thanks for letting me come by today. My creative juices are flowing. I had to put a little advert poster together for a project I am doing in Glen Eden. I am looking for Garden Mentors. Anyway, I ended up using a picture I took today at your place. It shows your little square foot garden bed. There is nothing about the picture that suggests it's your house. Do you mind if I use it?

so l'm confused, what difference does being a friend mean?

been at work since 6.30. l have breakfast here. l would love to come and look sometime. l will probably be rather envious but we are all learning and that is the great part. l have been looking at beehives and there is an interesting type of hive called top bar beehives that would seem better suited to the backyard gardener. Also saw an interesting use for empty wine bottles with screwtop lids - raised garden edging so l am now on the look out for empty wine bottles and similar.
