richnz Lots of #Autumn jobs going on and reading about no till #gardening. Problem: How do you dig #potatoes in a no till #kiwigarden? #pinkfur. Should keep us going for a week or two. These are a favourite for sure. #backyardnation #organic #pesticideherbicidefungicidefree #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns 3w

richnz "I'm the Queen of the Compost Pile"... Our #backyard #chickens in the #kiwigarden are adept at #excavating the #compost helping me turn it over and over.

richnz This is a #bluehubbard #pumpkin, grown from last years #kiwigarden #seed. It weighs maybe 20kg and there is a few of them. I'm thinking winter soups, roasts and pies!#organic #gardening in #stratfordonpatea #Taranaki #newzealand #backyardnation #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns #urbangardenersrepublic 4w

richnz A #bloodybutcher #corncob fresh from the #kiwigarden. Originally purchased the seed from #koangainstitute because they rated it as a good #carbon for the compost. It tasted great and now I've got seed galore and looking into milling it. Happy #sunday #gardening in #stratfordonpatea #Taranaki #newzealand 1mon
  •   benchefnz @richnz where can we buy the corn cobs like this from? Would love to work with these in the kitchen 4w
  •   garden.of.oz Mate, this is just unbelievable!!! I wanna get my hands in some of these seeds! 4w
  •   richnz @garden.of.oz maybe we could investigate doing that! 4w

richnz #bloodybutcher #corn. Seed from #koangainstitute. They were a speckled yellow and red when they younger and were great for eating. Now it's a strong red colour which is apparently good for drying and for milling. #kiwigarden #stratfordonpatea #Taranaki #newzealand #growsomethinggreen #growfoodnotlawns #organic #gardening 1mon
