Weird lifespan

by Lemony,

harvesting the bigger kūmara

by shiny,

We've just harvested the [kūmara](crop). It needs a warm summer, and this was the first summer we've grown it in a raised garden bed instead of a bag. At first, I thought it was a failure. I poked around the roots and found nothing. We pull out the greenery, and there was only a half dozen sma...

Keeping the bugs away with coffee

by shiny,

Ants, slugs, and snails don't much like coffee. But worms do like it. If, like me, you have an abundance of coffee grounds from staying home, you can sprinkle the [coffee](crop) around the vege to deter these creatures. It also fertilizes the plants and disappears into the soil after a few weeks.

by shiny,

There's so much baking going on here, stuck at home under the nationwide pandemic lockdown -- and when we can get eggs we end up with many eggshells. These can be crushed and placed around the base of brassica like [cabbage](crop) and [broccoli](crop). Snails and slugs don't like slithering over ...

The nets are up

by shiny,

Due to the pandemic lockdown, I can't go to the hardware store to get things. I've been in semi-isolation since the start of march, and we've been in nationwide lockdown since last week. I needed to set up the nets to keep out the white butterfly. I've had to be creative and i've had to recycl...

Wanted: Nanaimo peach budwood (Canada)

by corvi,

As far as I can tell, no nurseries in British Columbia (or the rest of Canada) currently sell the [peach](crop) variety actually developed and adapted for this area. Local nurseries all seem to import peach trees from big American distributors, who don't offer it. Smaller American nurseries who d...
