Today is seed planting time. I'm using Eden Seeds that are non-hybrid BUT were a big failure last year. It is too expensive to buy the punnets @ $2.99 each from the local supermarket.
If these don't germinate I will be bad mouthing Eden Seeds and complaining to them.
At $4.00 a packet, they aren't cheap when there are other outlets with much cheaper seeds and probably better service too.
Yesterday I bought $70 worth of fertilsers, lime and epsom salts at the local Rogers Rural, to get these little suckers growing. Now that would buy a few organic veges!!!!
I am trying out the Mittleider Gardening Method. [ Mitt lye der ]
We are using existing garden beds to save work and will work out the lineal feet that is then used to calculate the amount of fertiliser needed. 1oz per lineal foot.
I found the http://foodforeveryone.org/ site and was amazed at the results shown by the various You Tube videos.
So, I've ordered the Weekly Feed product and what a lovely person Jim Kennard seems.
Very helpful and not at all pushy. It costs $45 dollars for postage but will fit up to 11 pkts that has 2 pouches of 10ozs. With the Aussie dollar being high it is a good time to buy OS.
