richnz #seaweed mission to #CapeEgmont replica lighthouse successful! New measurement for you, 30 baskets equals 1 trailer. #organic #gardening #taranaki #newzealand. #growingsoil in the #kiwigarden #growfoodnotlawns 5d
  •   chefcynthialouise1 Yeah I have done the same in the past- @richnz have u ever gone as far as chopping it up and mixing it with already read soil? I wonder if that would push things forward- just talking it loud - thanks X 4d
  •   richnz @chefcynthialouise1 be faster I imagine if it was shredded up and mixed with soil or other compost material...think I really need to get another big load of this good stuff. One of my favourite books is 'let it rot' by stu Campbell.. It's about making compost. He says it all rots sooner or later and you can speed it up .... But the end result is pretty much the same, it's a good read if you can get your hands on it. 4d
  •   thecraftygoatfarm Awesome! I made a seaweed tea. Haven't used it yet. 4d
  •   chefcynthialouise1 Oh wow cheers @richnz 4d

richnz I'm not complaining about still having a few #tomatoes on the vine while digging #oca (#nzyams). Maybe the #kiwigarden in #stratfordonpatea #taranaki is the next #tropicalparadise. Just a couple of #pinkfir #fingerling #potatoes too... #growfoodnotlawns #backyardnation 2w

richnz Saturday morning #gardening. Here is a #newzealand tradition. #fejoias in the #frontyardorchard. Two trees will hopefully provide ample when they mature. #organic #stratfordonpatea #taranaki #kiwigarden #growyourownfood #growfoodnotlawns 2w

richnz It's #mothersday in the #kiwigarden and there are #indeterminate #tomatoes ripe on the vine inside the #grasshouse and a blue sky outside. Happy #gardening to all the mums, even though, sadly, some of them have to work #stratfordonpatea #taranaki #newzealand #organic #nuclearfreenz 3w
  •   richnz @freshlypickednz hi guess I've got about 10 or so tomatoes in the greenhouse actually looking pretty good. 2w
  •   freshlypickednz Wow that's fantastic - mine all just withered away haha . Very cool 2w

richnz #oca or #nzyams freshly exposed to the light of day. Got to find the balance of letting them grow further and collecting them before they split or deteriorate in wet soil. Anyways #yams for dinner! #organic #gardening in #stratfordonpatea #taranaki #newzealand #kiwigarden #growyourownfood 3w
  •   richnz @nanasrcool just had a few issues with them splitting in the past... Or being munched on by something... Any suggestions? 3w
  •   helenabruce83 Yum!!! @nellnz 3w
  •   nanasrcool @richnz never had issues with splitting in a commercial sence so I am unsure what is happening there......but the insect that loves them is unfortunatley the grass grub. We never managed to work out a organic treatment for these during our time. 3w
  •   thecraftygoatfarm Beautiful harvest. Mine are just a bit of an experiment but hoping for a harvest like yours next year 3w

richnz I could not wait any longer! These are 2016 #nzyams or #oca dug up to check 'em out. They are for dinner soon with #kiwigarden parsnips, carrots, and potatoes, shallots and garlic.... And chicken pie... (Not from the kiwigarden) #growsomethinggreen #backyardnation #organic #gardening in #stratfordonpatea #taranaki #newzealand 3w

richnz #kiwigarden #Meyer #lemons are ripening in their own time. Thank goodness I don't have to buy chemically saturated imported lemons (yuk) that have probably been nuked. #organic #gardening in #stratfordonpatea #Taranaki #newzealand #growsomethinggreen #backyardgarden #frontyardorchard #perfectwheatgrasscompanion 3w
