Toowoomba Community Organic Gardens

Toowoomba Community Organic Gardens

I did it, finally, and I mean, "Finally", (I've been gonna do this for months) I've gotten around to visiting the Toowoomba Community Organic Gardens and was impressed enough to join as a member.

The major benefit for me is that I gain an extra 30 to 40 sq/mts of garden to play with. Yeah for me :)

I've been frustrated with the lack of space in my backyard due mainly to overlapping crop growing times restricting what I can plant, ie, garlic and onions growing through to December when I need the space to plant potatoes in September.

Now, I'll be able to plant my slower and less needy crops, like potatoes, at the Toowoomba Community Organic Gardens and use my backyard for more permanent and high maintenance plants and veggies like Asparagus and Rosella as well as salad plants that need more regular watering.

I also mentioned back on the 22 of January about a Toowoomba area Backyard Veggie growing club and now that I've been to the Toowoomba Community Organic Gardens I'm thinking that for anyone interested we might be able to combine the two.
What do you think?

It could be like an informal get together.
I'd like to invite people from Aussies Living Simply and make a morning of it every now and then. They have a nice covered area for picnics as well as one of them big outdoor oven thingies (don't know their proper names).

Well that's it for now, cheers and happy veggie gardening.

Hi stewart it sounds like a great community and lots more space for you to grow in too.We found on one plot we did not have room fro anything which stayed in the ground too long or put in too much of anything, now with the two plots we have lots of different varieties of spuds and a whole range of things we could not otherwise grow.I look forward to reading all about it and Van the Man for added interest!

Hi Peggy, I'm as keen as to get started but I'm still chasing away a cold I have. I'm planning on planting a green manure crop of broad beans straight away and then I'll be ready for planting potatoes in late August.

I'm curious to find out what blog platform you are working with? I'm
having some minor security problems with my latest blog
and I'd like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless think
of if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your
posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could undeniably
be one of the greatest in its niche. Very good blog!

Hiya. I was contemplating adding a hyperlink back to your blog since both of our sites are based mostly around the
same subject. Would you prefer I link to you using your site address:
or blog title: Blogger: My Veggie Garden. Please let me know
at your earliest convenience. Thanks

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Hiya! My name is Mohammed and I just desired to say your web site is awesome!
It truly is hilarious due to the fact I use to have a weblog that virtually
had an identical website url: http://www.blogger.

com/comment.g?blogID=7677496750939268931&postID=8058475497584848419 mine was only a
few letters different. Nonetheless, I'm a big admirer of your blog website and if you ever want a guest post make sure you email me personally at: I absolutely love writing!

Hey! I hope you do not mind but I decided to post your blog: http:
// to my online directory website.
I used, "Blogger: My Veggie Garden" as your site headline.
I hope this is acceptable with you. However, if you'd like me to change the title or perhaps remove it completely, e-mail me at Thanks a ton.

Hey! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a template or
plugin that might be able to correct this problem.

If you have any recommendations, please share. With thanks!
