Hi Nikki, a partial success then! And if the stuff tastes absolutely awful, the chooks can have the lot. My garden is full of weeds and a few veges that have gone to seed (cabbages that never formed heads etc). I think I need to improve my soil :-) However, I have noticed a difference in the places where I've used the worm juice. This stuff is great. Cheers, Keri

Hi Nikki,
I'm still an avocado growing novice but I have a friend who has had an avocado orchard, different varieties, for many years. She's my avocado guru-I'll ask her and let you know.

That's awesome - thanks Nikki :-) I've been meaning to set up a worm bin but I'm waiting for my sister to get rid of hers. (It's sitting unused and I'm itching to get my hands on it.) Sorry I missed you on the weekend - we might catch up another time. Thanks again for the worm juice - I will apply it to my many ailing plants! Cheers, Keri

Yes - do let me know what the wheatgrass drink tastes like! It's supposed to be really good for you, but I can't bring myself to try one. Keri :-)

Hi again Nikki - I've just realised that I might not be around on Saturday as my son and daughter need to be in two different places! I will leave the wheat on the back door step for you. (You can check out my weedy garden on the way!) The numbers are a bit funny in my street, so turn into Rosehill, drive up the little hill to the Give Way sign and you will see opposite you a white house with a red roof and garage - that's our house. Cheers, Keri

That will be fine. We'll see you then. No need for anything in exchange but thanks for the offer. I have - finally - got a few things in the garden ready to eat! Cheers, Keri

Hi Nikki
Yes I still have the wheat seeds and yes, it was for a science fair experiment! I have a couple of bags if you want both of them. I was going to grow wheatgrass but changed my mind. We are in Nawton - 36 Rosehill Place - if you are on Avalon Drive, turn into Grandview Road then right into Bartholomew Drive, and left into Rosehill Place. Cheers, Keri

Those beds look solid! The warmth soaked up by the bricks must be a bonus. If I have something to share I will let you know. Putaruru is only 15 minutes away, more or less.

How nice to meet you! Maybe we will meet you one day!

Hey Nikki, thanks for your email. We still have lots of leeks and are looking forward to the big old orange tree coming on stream. We have finished the chook house so you will have to come over and give your verdict. Regards Andy

well I have gotten as far as getting the seed trays ready to put the seeds in :) I have been trying to get a Diploma I have been doing over the last three years finished , so not much spare time :( - will likely get some seeds in next weekend and get them underway - will let you know when they are ready to go.

Hi Nikki, my wife looooves Persimon!
We have been in our home since January and I am getting the vege garden gowing slowly.
I will be sowing more Broccoli seeds soon, if you like I can sow extra for you - 6,12 or more seeds you name it. I sow them in half toilet rolls filled with potting mix - in seed trays. When the seedlings are big enough I just pull out the paper roll with the seedling and pop in the ground , easy as - I do this with other seeds as well.

Would be neat to swap surplus produce and plants. We live not far from the college (just like the rest of Putaruru!)

Hi Nikki, we could do with some feijoas thank you but only if you have excess. I will catch up with you at school.
Many thanks

Hi Nikki, thanks for the recipe. The spinach sounds good too. If it works for you, Nic and I will pop around in the weekend to get a wee supply. We may bring some Feijoa loaf with us.

Hi Nikki, be good to see you if you're passing Gordonton! The lemon grass is in a sheltered spot, but still tends to brown off at the tips over winter. But we get hard frosts here, with ice on our duck pond, and it still comes away every spring.
Cheers, David, Annette and Iris
