richnz #bumblebees having fun on the #artichoke. I get to play in the #kiwigarden today as its #taranaki anniversary! 3w
  •   ijclarke37 @richnz we ran out of compost & had to buy a cubic metre of compost to help us build the no dig beds. Great that your close to seaweed... Sounds a whole lot cheaper too. 3w
  •   ijclarke37 @richnz my other half has planted buckwheat, Lucerne & chickpeas. Limited success with the chickpeas & Lucerne but the buckwheat is going well. 3w
  •   crc74 Love this!!! 3w
  •   richnz @closetbeekeeper Haha hi! Taranaki is where I live! 3w
  •   richnz @ijclarke37 see weed is free ! Unlike the trailer hire and petrol! But still a pretty good deal! 3w
  •   ijclarke37 We make our own compost but our new garden extension required far more than we could make. Fortunately we found a friendly local dairy farmer nearby who allows us to clear out his calf pens. Great free manure. Not sire 3w
  •   ijclarke37 Oops typo at the end. 3w

  •   richnz @januny I'm wondering how heavy,,,, guessing 10kg plus! 3w
  •   steveswraps Oh I see it now! Cool as! 3d
  •   steveswraps Hey by the way, I grew winter wheat last year. Harvested it about 6 months ago and made some beer with it. Not too bad! Pretty rewarding too! 3d
  •   organicgardengirl3 So amazing!!!! 2d
  •   richnz @steveswraps that's very cool id like to grow some wheat to make bread sometime 21h
  •   steveswraps I did a row about 40 feet by 3 feet. So in NZ terms... 13 yards by one yard :-) I picked it all by hand ... you really have to be determined haha! A scythe or something would have been better 20h
  •   steveswraps But that was 5 lbs of seed I planted. Just to give you an idea. 20h
  •   richnz Great to know... Taranaki is quite wet... I'd need a variety that was quick growing I think 20h
