Last week in Ligaya Garden #11


So much is happening, both here and outhere in the big world that we thought it worth doing a little catchup every Sunday and publish it on a Monday, Oz time. All of the posts will be listed here on this page for your elucidation and convenience. Another week of tidying up unfinished and even…

Aquaponics tour October 2019


It’s time for a quick look at the aquaponics as we prepare it for Summer. We’re planting Kangkong, which is our Summer staple green. The Strawberries are loving the condition and it’s time to replace the Lettuces. It’s only a brief video and there’s more work to do over the next few days.

Stop and smell the roses


As much as I’m all for growing plants to eat, I do love this time of year when other gardeners are enjoying the rewards of carefully tending to their roses. I went out for a walk today just to stop and smell the flowers… Of course, you can’t get the perfume online, tech isn’t that…

Rooted in the aquaponics


Today didn’t work out exactly as I expected. What was supposed to be a quick trim of the Carrot Herbs (Aethionema cordifolium) in bed 4 of the aquaponics turned into a complete clean out for that bed and number 5. What could the problem be? Over Winter, the lush growth of the Carrot Herbs hid…

Ligaya Gardening Tips #12 the top predator


We often get asked for gardening tips, so have decided to do a weekly post describing things we do to keep our garden going well with bugger all effort. I’ll collate them on this page. A garden is an artificial ecosystem and, try as we might it’s almost impossible to turn it into a 100%…

Ligaya Gardening Tips #13 Pigeon Poo Percolator


Here’s a simple device to make your life less smelly. It’s our Pigeon Poo Percolator (I love alliteration!). It can be used to leach the goodness from chook poo too, but not dog poo and I haven’t tried human poo yet. All it is is two plastic spring water bottles. One stays completes, sits on…

Last week in Ligaya Garden #8 and #9


So much is happening, both here and outhere in the big world that we thought it worth doing a little catchup every Sunday and publish it on a Monday, Oz time. All of the posts will be listed here on this page for your elucidation and convenience. I know, I didn’t write an update last…

One of my little inventions.


It sits over the 90mm pipes that reach down to root level by each tree and allows us to fill that pipe plus another 11 liters. The filled container then drains slowly and deeply into the soil below the mulch, ensuring that there is a good reservoir of water there for the trees to drink…

Helping hands around Gawler #4 UCare


I definitely like free things, so, over the next couple of weeks, I’m going around investigating the free stuff around Gawler. These will be things that you don’t need to sign up for, just visit anonymously. Being typically me, my focus is on free food and information. I’ll steer away from money though. These posts…
