STEVES’S LATE WINTER SURVIVAL TIPS
5th August, 2014

After being inspired by the talk and workshop of a “Tale of two Steve’s” (hosted by Permaculture Blue Mountains and BMFC) I began to think about what goes on in the winter garden? At the talk, Steve Alton whose garden is in Katoomba, shared with us information about the weather and water issues that we get faced with in the mountains. He reminded us that water is essential for the life of a plant and that winter is our driest season. He also showed us a graph of the winds we get living in the mountains, showing that in every month we could get hit with 40km winds. August is the notorious windy month, so what are his tips for the gardens survival?

WHATS IN SEASON ON THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE STANDS?
24th July, 2014

Winter is the season of soups and stews, staying warm and getting your slow cooker cranking. So what are the best seasonal buys at the moment?

Keep an eye on the price: generally the more in season it is, the better the price. We still sell eggplants, tomatoes and zucchini at this time of the year, but being typically ‘summer’ vegetables they are more expensive. If you look to the vegetables below, you are more likely to get some bargains, but there can still be great fluctuations in price. In the last few weeks broccoli alone has ranged from $5 to $12 per kilo. Please note that this is the seasonal produce that we have received of late. We cannot guarantee the availability of any produce.
