Green tomato bugs? Uh Oh, I am due home tomorrow after being away nearly 2 weeks, hope mine are still OK. Only have four different plants ripening now, I put some romas in very late, hoping the get productive before it cools off.
Yeah I am the only one who eats the cukes too! Ecept I sneak them into stir fries and in to Thai green curry at the last minute so the other half eats them then. The soil they are in was literally pure sand, I added one bag of sheep manure to the bed and some dynamic lifter when we dug out the bamboo, and that seems to be keeping everything very happy.
Thanks for the tip about Parkeys, I've seen the sign but never stopped in. Will just have to do so now, especially for the satsumas! I am big on the all yellow - including the skin - peaches that I find at some places down there, not sure what the variety is but they are so good, and a later season variety too.
No, sorry, I am not much help on the jars. I get mine from Plasdene in Canning Vale - just regular kind of jars not mason jars or anything fancy. Pretty good value and a huge range, also replacement lids as well. Min purchase there is $50, which is pretty easy to do
