It was an excellent start to the new year with over 30 L2L members turning up at Blue and Cindy’s place for the first meeting of 2014. Thanks go out to the hosts for their overwhelming hospitality and for Cindy’s wonderful cooking. This garden has come together in the last four years and consists of a terraced landscape thickly coated with wood mulch. The greenhouse is Blue’s secret weapon against fruit flies and other pests and lets him grow tomatoes and other plants year round without having to use pesticides. St Andrews spiders are captured from the property and released into the greenhouse to take care of any pests that might get in.
Blue is growing a lot of Asian fruits and vegetables plus mobs of ginger and bananas including cooking bananas.
