    a summer update

    In Italy we say 'Niente nuove, buone nuove', that means - more or less - “if you don't hear from someone, everything is ok with him”. But I think that if any generally active folian is absent from the website, probably it's not an easy period for him/her. So, I have to admit: this hasn't been an...

    A trip through the desert.

    Gardening wise I have been fairly quite, too many other distractions. One of those distractions was a winter trip though part of the Strzelecki Desert which is located in north eastern South Australia and north western New South Wales. Most of the time was spent driving but there were still a f...

    Prickly pear everything

    You know you are a -crazy- gardener when you find a purple potato under your bed sheets! Apparently our beagle-terrier Millicent snagged it out of the harvest bag in the kitchen and hid her new 'ball'! (I'm only too glad she did not snag a prickly pear!)

    Graibeard was right......

    It is impossible to grow just one single courgette plant Last year I was fast disappearing under a colossal pile of courgettes and I promised myself there would just be ONE plant this year. Graibeard raised a sage eyebrow....and I have to admit to owning 5, plus 2 cucumber, 2 butternut, 2 sp...

    fuzzy wuzzy was a -- what?

    Today, I saw a small green praying mantis. Also, I saw this white wormy thing that is kind of fuzzy. I don't know what it is, either, but I'm pretty sure that's just because I don't know and not because I've forgotten. Is it a terrible horrible no good very bad thing, or a don't worry I'll j...

    Time is a blur

    No keeping track of harvests, it's been Tomato Pandemonium around here, now seeds are starting to be saved. Heavy rains then no rains meant that many - most - of the Brandywines cracked and then the bugs invaded them. We came out one day and it looked like a large animal had ransacked the tomato ...
