Growing, harvesting and preparing to eat produce from your garden can be a very rewarding experience. For the first time gardener it is a major celebration to pick from your garden and then sit down for dinner and eat what you have grown. The purpose of this web site is to introduce everyone into having a wonderful garden. You don't have to have a green thumb; all you need is an imagination and me.

I'm so proud of her....and she's tickled pink....about her carrots!
Well done Anna for listening in class too.
My students were all taught an easy way to grow carrots....It's simple, it works....
Just look at these babies....
MARTINS Seed Raising Plug Mix
All you need is a semi large pot!
Fill it with a good seed raising mix which you can get from Wollongong Wholesale NurseryAt the nursery we only use Martin's Seed Raising Plug Mix.
(don't forget if your a member, you get a 15% discount)
Plant your carrots, a few weeks later thin them.... continue watering them every day...but what ever do, don't fertilize them. You will get ugly shaped carrots if you fertilize the plot. There is enough nutrients in the seed raising mix for the growth of your carrots.
Here's a photo of Anna while visiting Jean's garden....It was a lovely day with good friends. Thanks Jean & Graham for showing us around your garden.... (another post to come)
