Nice Jaymie - hope you cook with it - fresh turmeric is infinitely better than the powdered !

Yeah, I intended to put more in but just have not had free time to get my act together for gardening or AP in the last 3-4 weeks. Bugger :swear:

I'e had tumeric plants for a few years. Originally had in AP, but this year put bits of root in dirst garden. After a while I thought none were going to come up (put them in a pretty crappy area of the garden) but eventually after some good rains at least half a dozen came up, along with 4 or 5 ginger plants.

Looking forward to a reasonable crop so at last I can start cooking with the stuff. Will be looking for suggestions :-)

Yeap, the ginger looks good Duff !

EB, the other turmeric that I thought had died has just sent up a shoot over the weekend - so both pieces are working well :D

Also, the 5 pieces of ginger I planted around the same time started shooting over the weekend as well - all while I was up at Ledge Point fishing and they weren't getting watered :crazy:

Only small stuff from the beach (herring, skippy, whiting, wrasse, garfish) but we got 2 meals for 11 of us ! First fishing I've done in well over a year.

Nice, nothing wrong with those fish for eating.....

Hmmm, I'm heading off tonight to go Bream fishing in the river.. Secret little spot that has done us well in the past many years ago, see if there's anything left there now..

If only..... Didn't get a thing, lots of blowies before dark, no bites after dark. Next week we'll try a little further upriver, evidently in late summer you have to go further up river. No these aren't for the AP system, because that would be illegal.... :)
