its damage from a leaf miner beetle that lives inside the leaf.
Its very minor damage that a healthy plant can overcome.
If your plant has been producing well for a while then its time to plant a new one to take over from this one.
Or...Try some white oil or natural water-based insecticide to...
The fig can be cut off at the fork where it looks like its been cut off before. Then repot after root pruning half the roots away too. Use new potting mix and repot into the same pot or as Vicky suggests use one of those root pruning bags.
The two macadamias probably need to be given away or...
Robbie, I can't remember if you are in Australia or America somewhere.
If in Australia try for a secondhand mill through your local organic co-op or permaculture group.
The thing with cheap mills is they have cheap blades that blunt very quickly and may be hard to replace or have...
Link, it's really important to have cool roots for your plants. I assume they are in pots or some sort of container?
If so there might be radiant heat coming up from the floor they are sitting on.
I have previously used old styro boxes (white foam fruit or vegetable boxes from the market.)
My neighbour's chooks find their way right to the far side of my place. That's well over 300m away from their pen on the far side of their property and they get there very fast.
They are hunting for somewhere to scratch for small invertebrates mostly.
They have heaps to eat in their pen, but...
I get free shavings from my local Men's shed. They separate the wood that has been glued from the raw timber so I can be sure to only get non-glued shavings.
I have been known to go along the sides of my rural dirt road after rain (so the grass is clean and free of dust) with the wool shears and...
Each month I write an article for Mark to publish about what to plant next month or next season, but he is so busy he hasn't been able to publish them.
I asked him if I could use them to make posts in this forum so the information got to members but he hasn't been able to reply.
When I write...
In the 'old days,' the grocery shopping list consisted of flour, sugar, tea and salt.
My exposure to this shopping list came from working on cattle stations where there were families, single men and indigenous people living independently in a community of humpies who didn't get room and board...
They'll sort themselves out eventually. Prune off some of the oldest leaves, let the pumpkin ramble off the bed and wrap it around the bottom edge of the sides of the beds. I think you should feel elated that you've discovered how to get your soil producing. Then set your mind to reproducing...
Have you thought about more instant fruits like pepino (google it) which is a bush that spreads on the ground.
Depends on how much water you have and what the humidity is for the hottest part of the year and what your pH is.
If it's acidic then blueberries, blackberries or raspberries are the...
Always wise to take advantage of the good weather, considering you guys have just had that miserable weather last week.
In case you don't already know this, can I just point out to you about pH levels when combining plants in one bed?
Kipflers like pH of 5-6 whereas peas like 6-7.
So make sure...
Other small animals such as chickens and quail are ok and Mark has both. He could also go fishing!
Or trade some excess veg for a young goat or pig? Where's Ray Speed?
Bartering should not be forgotten as a viable method of supplementing the produce supply.
