    It does look a bit like Tronchuda Kale.@Ronei
  • Mark Mark:
    G'day @Ronei that's a cabbage but you can get a similar crinkly cabbage that is very much like kale - of course, they are both from the same brassica family... Cheers :)

    Hi Mandy! :)
  • Mark Mark:
    I've just come back from Bunnings I needed to grab a couple of European power adapters for my new freeze dryer from Harvest Right I
  • Mark Mark:
    I'm pretty excited to use it and have a bunch of bananas that are ripening too fast to eat at once so freeze-drying bananas will likely be my first test!
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Haha cool! I'd love hearing how that tastes!
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    G'day everyone, hope we'reall having a lovely day!

    I hope all my Australian and New Zealand(er?) friends are doing well, media is making it look a little sporty over there
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    'Stralia here. Doing well, but staying away from everything going on, haha. Enjoying my plants and pets much more instead ;D
  • E EsthersGirl:
    I had a question about your video; what happens when you bury logs... Did you get the logs off your property, so you know there's been no chemicals used on them or nearby? Would you use wood chips if you didn't know if the original trees were sprayed? Thanks.
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Hi @EstersGirl , I believe those logs and sticks were indeed from his own yard! If you are unable, there are many places that advertise their wood as not having had chemicals and whatnot. It's often worth having a look around, even if you can't find the proper logs; things like woodchip could give a similar result. I've also known people to scavenge their local woods (where allowed). I know around here there are locations where you are allowed to scavenge (not cut down!) because it helps as fire protection; people take the dead "debris" away, which would light on fire easily.

    I also talk to my neighbors and ask about their wood / yard scrap. If no chemicals, I offer to haul it off. Straight to my garden :)

    hi everyone I am having some trouble with my parsley and my celery, possibly a pest? however they are both roughly 2 years old though still going strong. celery is chest high at the moment no signs of bolting. parsley has root as thick as my wrist.
  • Roxy Roxy:
    I didn't get to finish my post and pressed send by accident... been noticing the leaves getting speckled with yellow or white spots and there are tiny greenish yellow fast jumping bugs hanging around. south east Queensland area.
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Hi @Roxy , I would be guessing the bugs might definitely be part of the issue.
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Allow me to look it up, see what I can find. My parsley's been dying off a little lately too, but after some fertilising it sprung back up again. Didn't have the issues you've described though
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    I have found this handy guide to help you figure out what pest you might be dealing with @Roxy
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    And mark has this really helpful video on how to make repellants
