More tech than gardening

Apr 09, 2010

Ok, today I figured out why I couldn't upload my profile pic - I hadn't noticed the error that popped up *and went away* that says the minimum size has to be 200 pixels by 200 pixels. Got it now! See me!!!


I've applied for mentor and organiser. As a result I've started a Sydney pod, Oz Pod, deleted that, created Oz group, gone over to the other site and chatted on the Oz group over there letting people know what's been set up. I've also found all the people who identified themselves as being from Sydney and left a message for each of them to come over here. I've also joined the Pod organisers group but I haven't had a chance to get in there and read discussions yet.


I do have some gardening to this weekend - I've got a banana passionfruit to plant out, a dietes and a bird of paradise. I hope the banana passionfruit copes with out frosts, ordinary passionfruit won't. There was a banana passionfruit groing at Piction some years ago that lasted for years. It was growing over the fence of a child care centre and I use to pick the fruit off the outside. Nice eating and if it can cope with Picton severe frosts I'm thinking it should cope with Sydney western suburbs frosts - probably only one or two severe frosts a year. I know the Dietes is too tough for anything and once a b of d is established it only browns off around the edges.
