I’m so sorry to hear about your dog.
If it’s any help, there was a 13 year old dog on “Bondi Vet” the other night with this disease. He was in hospital for a few days and full rest was very important, and they said it could take from a few days to a couple of weeks to come right.
If you can, take a look.
All the best, Paula.
If you have heavy clay, then it’s not a good idea to dig a hole and put the apricot tree in. Clay dosen’t drain very well, and so the apricot trees you have planted so far would probably have been sitting in a pool of water and the roots will have rotted. The best solution is to plant it into a raised mound so as to keep the roots…[Read more]
I have a seedling that was put in about 9 years ago, which is now about 5 metres high and flowered for the first time last year. It didn’t set any fruits, so can’t tell you what they were like, but as ma says, they are a lovely tree, so I’m leaving it in. I have 3 other grafted varieties so if it never has any fruit on dosen’t bother me, but…[Read more]

Syzygium aqueum…..AKA Wax Jambu or Water Roseapple. 😀
Just off to look at your blog Col. I have really enjoyed the pictures you have posted so far on ALS. 😀
Welcome to ALS, Laimelde :wave:
Sounds like it could be rats especially if the damage is being done underneath the foilage. They like to stay under cover and don’t like being out in the open.
Me too Karma.
I’ve managed to stay positive over the last 9 years whenever we have had very little rain, but this year it’s been very hard watching lots of things shrivel up, and I feel like giving up too. It’s so frustrating when you see the storm cells on the computer, and they are heading in every direction but yours, and the weather Dept…[Read more]
I don’t know about the bean sprouts or peas, but I have also read that raw beans contain lectins which are a mild insecticide and in high doses are toxic. Red kidney beans are the worst and should be cooked before eating. 😀
I have animal, vegetable, mineral sitting in my bookcase waiting to be read….and will surely start on reading that in the next few days after the great comments from others. Another good book along the same lines is “The Olive Grove” by Patrice Newell. She leaves a highly charged urban life to live in the country to set up a biodynamic farm…[Read more]
I agree with everybody else HBG…..please stay, I have enjoyed reading your “project” log and it’s great to have someone as knowledgeable as you on this site.
I’ve noticed a few sarcastic remarks made towards you in some posts lately, but those people are the minority, and I’m sure the majority would like you to stay. These members should be…[Read more]
Absolutely love your garden Kasalia, :tup: and love looking at the pictures, as you have so much going on in it.
Great start Swaggie…..it’s such a thrill when they pop their little leaves out of the soil, isn’t it. Look forward to seeing how they go. 😀
Welcome to ALS Alpine :wave:
RR….if you have really heavy clay soil, the worst thing you can do is dig holes and plant the trees into these, as the water can’t drain away, and the roots will just sit in the water and rot. I have the same type of soil, and the best way I have found is to plant the trees onto a raised mound of soil that will let the water drain away. 😀
Welcome to ALS Shane :wave: from another neighbour a wee way down the coast.
It looks like apple mosaic virus Billybutton. I think it affects some varieties more than others, and not sure if there is a treatment or not.
Hi busybee :wave:
Once my broccoli finishes producing, I leave one plant in to flower as the bees absolutely love these flowers, and then I still leave it in to self seed. I have some self sown seedlings coming up now…….it’ll be too warm soon, but I’ll leave them in to see what happens. 😀 I only grew one variety last time so they should be ok.
I’ll be in at this stage too. 😀
I would love to meet everybody.
No, it’s definetly not you Jade. I’ve been growing veges for years and always end up with most of my tomatoes dying of wilt…..I think the humidity makes things worse up here for us. I have even tried growing them in pots, and still no luck. :noapprove: so I just grow the different kinds of cherry tomatoes now as they seem more resistant.
