all going well Veebs, the galangal is 6 inches tall :)


Good to hear. Had some trouble with the sweet potato, with it mostly going rotten within a couple of days of me getting it home. I've now managed to get a shoot on it though, so all is good for getting this slip into the ground in the near future. The West Indian Arrowroot hasn't shown any signs of shooting at this stage (hopefully it is still there - in the ground - and hasn't gone rotten).

Have you planted the water chestnuts? I've had mine in the fridge over winter and have just today made up a bed in an old trough for them. Reading up again on how to grow them I see that they only need to be planted very sparsely (I planted more densly anyway - couldn't help myself) so you should have plenty for a decent sized bed of them.

gosh
it has been a while
spring in Townsville is DRY, very DRY and windy
we are in the process of building a new water tank stand, then there will be some flat ground and new wicking beds will go in behind fences that the chooks can't get past (hopefully)
lots to do
I will find some pics tomorrow

we had a pretty pitiful wet season, only about half of average rainfall. so, that made building these wicking beds that bit more important
