I helped judge and present some awards at the 2017 Te Kowhai School harvest festival.
I went and checked out what was happening at current NZ record holder Tim’s Patch.
An update on how the plants are looking around these parts.
World record holder Mathias Willemijns is doing a live Facebook Q&A very soon, all the details HERE.
First post for 2017 with a check in of my plant.
A bit of an update before Christmas on what has kept me busy the last couple of weeks and how the plant is going.
The seed auctions have just started. Find out what they are all about and what you need to know if you are after the best seeds.
An update on the plant now that I am back from Christchurch, time for some pea straw and some added fertiliser to the patch.
I have a good looking seedling now, so I have transplanted it outside and I have now come up with a nickname for the other seedling.
My irrigation is all set up now, find out what didn’t work. And an update on the seedlings.
The Harris 561 seeds are growing well, I started some Harris 1740.5 seeds, and one of the other ones decided to wake up.
My initial 3 seeds didn’t want to germinate for some reason, so I started some Harris 561 and they germinated within 36hrs.
In my quest to sort out the watering for the patch I bought another timer and hose and hooked it all up.
Trumpkins are going to be one of the hot trends this Halloween, check out these Trumpkins for inspiration.
It’s time to get the seeds started for the 2016 season. In this post I show you what seeds I am going to start and hopefully grow.
I’ve added more compost to the patch, and have also added the tap to the blue drum.
New world record has been made with Mathias Willemijns weighing in a 2624.6lb monster in Germany.
It has been raining a lot lately, hampering weed spraying plans, I’ve also come up with a way to store water.
New records in 2016 for Germany, Mexico, Ireland and Canada and a new world record squash weight.
The new season is almost upon us, I briefly touch on the two main areas you need to be thinking about right now.
