Cennednyss won prizes for pears (1st), capsicum (2nd), eggplant (2nd) and the Champion Organic sii  ash for our Rhubarb!iii

Fair was great with fascinating talks on summer pruning (Harry) and garden care (Sophie). Dave snaffled Harry to identify Gravensteins and Sue Mac took notes

  • need for ‘umbrella’ plants flowering all the time in our vegie garden.
  • mulch trees with wood mulch (eucalyptus only when the smell has gone as the oil if a disinfectant and would kill the good bugs in the soil) and vegetables with pea straw.
  • salt bush excellent around vegie garden
  • healthy plants (eg broccoli) resist the white butterfly (?oil repels them)
