Hi Anna, I'm in West Auckland and after a quantity of comfrey for a largish area that we want to plant potatoes in, do you have a lot or a little spare?  Am loving your photos as I write this.

HI Anna, re your cat problem, it is a perennial one for sure, if you go to the trademe discussion board http://www.trademe.co.nz/Community/MessageBoard/SearchResults.aspx

and put in ' cat' in the search bar, change to posts in the ' last year', you will get many threads of people discussing this topic, maybe one has a solution!

i haven't forgotten you.  It's coming. Thanks for asking, the bone mended ages ago - I'm told its the scar tissue that causes problem and I'll be right in 18 months. Another 4 months to go! Managed to keep the Food bank happy all season but have just run out.  The leeks not big enough. Have tomatoes up on the window sill. Have seedlings of chard and pac choi potted up ready to go when they're big enough. Yakon is wonderful,eh? I've baked it, chopped it up in stews and in fruit salad.  Have given heaps of pink knobs away and still will more than double production for next season. Concentrating on stuff that will travel and hold - for foodbank.  Canasta lettuce from Kings is the best lettuce for that. Happy gardening!

Anna,  I have found your address and realised I didn't send you the seed.  I'm sorry.  Life is still abit of a struggle as the broken bone is taking such a long time to mend.  But I'll get you some for next season!

Yes, I have. Just know that if any are left behind they will seed profusely - not that I mind! My best crop last year was popcorn. That was easy and fun to grow. If you want some seed its not too late. Send me your address via a message.

Aargh! I've just looked up where it is and I think it's too far. I thought you were running it in Tirau! Thought I hadn't heard of Old Farm Road in the area! But you are most welcome to visit here in Tokoroa - 37 Tasman Drive. if you are down this way.

I just checked the spelling - it is Achocha, I had a few seeds given to me from Robyn, it is the only one that germinated... it is a vine that looks a litlle like a choko and a similar looking fruit, I am growing it more for the novalty at the moment, but I will see if I can get it to grow in the garden as it is still in a pot in the back porch, winter is still hanging around. we live in Te Awamutu for a couple of years and also in KihiKihi for a while. my youngest a boy is 15mths

I planted at end of winter 2 grape vines, 2 apple trees, 1 plum, 1 Elderberry and 1 pear. soon to go in the garden are Tomatoes, Celery and Parsley
We have 3 chooks and 4 chicks that our broody Bantam hatched for us, the kids liked that.

Plant your Jerusalem artichokes in the biggest pot you can find becuase they spread madly. Leave one bit in the ground and they're off. My 'thing' at the moment is Jerusalem's cousin - Yakon. It grows dahlia like tubers beneath which, when peeled are sweet, crunchy and juicy. They can be eaten raw, popped in a fruit salad, or stirfried savoury etc. good for diabetics as they contain inulin. I'm trying to get mine out as the tops are beginning the new growth. I broke the small bone in my leg by the ankle, last June (slipped on a rotten feijoa) and have missed the garden for three months. Just bought a kneeling pad/ stool so I can get out and tackle the mess. Can't wait. Spent the morning pricking out seedlings. Fun.
