    It's brilliant Mandy. Previously I was moving my crappy little hose between 3 taps and still need to use a watering can. Now, it goes the distance. I see what the fuss is about

  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Sounds awesome. I've got a leaking hose that's not actually long enough to reach my plants. And when the water flows through it stiffens like mad and becomes very unpleasant to use, haha. I'm definitely considering it too..

    No luck fro me. I buy from Bunnings and make amendmens to it myself when needed (like fertiliser, etc).

    Hi, I live on the Sunshine Coast, and never grow sweet corn because of the constant attack of the corn earworm. Any suggestions how to avoid attack without using pesticides. Cheers..... Graham
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    @Grahamwalker some people like to put a couple of drops of canola or olive oil in the ear tips as soon as the silk starts drying. I have no experience with it myself though. But I hope this helps

    All my Fire & Ice chili's have sprouted. Hoping to add it to the list of Showcase items once it's grown and I know what they taste like :D

    Yes, I'll do the same for the Habanero chocolate, Habanero sweet, Fulius blue, Aji pineapple, Aji charapita yellow, Mini Thai, Jalapeno early and XXL Longhorn 🤣
  • Lunai Lunai:

    Oof, schools have started again this weeks. Can you imagine the amount of cops around checking for speed and breath? Not that I have anything to hide, but people are driving 20km below the speed limit 😆

  • Lunai Lunai:
    :rolleyes:🤣those are the worst.... well, at least as bad as the ones that always speed😅

  • JoshW JoshW:
    I think 20km under the limit deserves the aesthetic fine as 20 over sometimes :ROFL:
    +2
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    At the same time I'm glad you don't get fined as when the car broke down and wouldn't speed up I drove 40kms under speedlimit :blush:
