Summer broccoli doesn't work

I planted some [broccoli](crop) at the start of spring.. I grew fast, made long stems and quickly turned into yellow flowers. I conclude the first spring summer months aren't good for brocoli. So I've got some new seedlings in now, in the heat of summer, hoping that by the time i put them in... Read more

I like to automate the calculations, analysis, and plain old remembering what has happened in the garden. Some of the challenges in my garden is knowing when it's too late to planting something, if it will cope with the weather conditions here, and working out what is killing the... Read more

Pūhā for dinner

[Pūhā](crop) grows wild everywhere in New Zealand. It's a bit like spinach, but is bitter when raw. It's traditional in a bunch of dishes, but I like to use as a substitute for steamed spinach with eggs benedict.

We've been rock and rolling with 7.7 Earthquake at midnight and i lost count of how many 6-pointer aftershocks - and a tsunami evacuation. Super tired, this morning we went home for about 90 minutes sleep - and then went looking for something normal (instead of our wavy shaken up house).... Read more

How to grow kūmara

Posted by shiny on November 13, 2016 at 05:04" and edited at November 13, 2016 at 05:05

[Kūmara](crop) has been part of the staple diet of people in te Motu Kairangi for hundreds of years - so i figure it should grow here. I come from a long long line of potato growers, so maybe the genetic skills are transferrable. I planted 4 kūmara into pots, with sand above and below, and... Read more

I've just uploaded some more recent photos of my plants. The [parsley](crop) is still going strong, having seeded itself in a second spot along the box. One patch has died back a bit - I clearly need to pick it and use it more often. The [chives](crop) have also died back a bit, again probably... Read more

Hi all, You may have noticed that things have been very quiet with Growstuff for the last year or so. This is primarily because I have been dealing with some serious health issues that left me unable to manage Growstuff, or even to spend much time online, since early 2015. Things are... Read more
