    Have you thought of eating them like the Wild Civet, then sifting through your shit for the beans.

    Oi oi Blue couple of pics here of what i was trying to describe to you. Better to have less plant than more with tomatoes. (with the exception of cherries, tom thumbs etc) I run mine with tworuns that gives me excellent air flow and really nice evenly staggered trusses. Good airflow is important mate as they are prone to fungal problems and makes it harder for pests to hide. In the ground I plant them no more than 500mm apart. I keep the first growing tip under the first truss for my second run. If you have more runs always keep from the first axis below a truss. When they get over my head I top em out that gives me around ten trusses per plant. Another reason I only run two lines is this,To give you an idea mate I have two Romas here with an average of 6 fruits per truss x ten trusses thats plenty of fruit for one plant to handle and get nice even sized fruits. and the other variety is a small fruit bit bigger than a golf ball perfect for jarring. Im getting an average of 9 fruits per truss x 10 trusses. This particular variety in spring produces no less than 13 and up to 22 fruits per truss. Thats alot of fruits man. Running more than 2 lines or having more than 1 plant per pot is gunna tke some serious work and feed. They hungry and thirsty buggers.

    Nice pics Hobbit and some good info there thanks mate. A couple of last years beefsteak toms suffered from rot big ol girls they were which as you say above could have done with good airflow

    yeah airflow is paramount mate. I noticed I said no more than 500mm apart. I meant no closer than 500mm. Lack of Cal is also a big cause of rot. Good luk brother.

    Hi Hobbit, I'm probably a bit late for this suggestion but my gran used to swear by growing garlic, aniseed and fennel to keep certain pests away.

    Cheers for that Clarice, your gran would be right, garlic any thing in the Allium family seems to keep pests away. Ive never grown Aniseed or fennel but ive no doubt they might as well. There is alot going on in companion planting regards the microbe relationships below the soil as well. I try not to plant to many rows of things in the garden, I prefer to let things self sow and then let selected ones grow, seems to work better than a row of this and a row of that.

    No drama with rosemary here mate everything does ok here. The only things I cant grow are things that like a good frost or cold spell. Ive got one little raised bed 1.2m x 1.2m counted up 12 varieties of herb in there the other day and a couple of tomato plants. Thyme , garlic chives,lemon grass,lemon balm,chives, basil, Vietnamese mint, coriander, oregano, mint, dill and parsley. Got other varieties of herbs in other beds as well. Will post some pics of my native strawberry in the next few days, just waiting for enough fruit to ripen at once for a good pic. Ive got of edible 10 varieties of edible shrubs and trees as well as alot of veg. If I actually owned this house id have more. Im always limiting myself in case I need to move in future. Not bad for a small suburban yard tbh.

    You now have Mrs M_C curious (which is normally a bad thing for me!) How long does it take a coffee plant to hit maturity & give a harvest?

    3-4 years M_C, tend to get a few fruits in the 3rd year an ok crop 4th year and full maturity at 5 years. Rekon you would have a drama growing it in the UK as its a subtropical/tropical fruit. Its a rain forest plant in the wild. Actually the best tasting coffee is still grown as an under story plant they only need about 30% sunlight. For commercial practices this becomes very impractical. I need to refine the harvest to cup process as its way too time consuming the ways i did it.

    My coffee plants are quite short as I have them in pots so my harvests will be smaller. They self sow like crazy and I have another 2 seedlings at the moment be ready in four years lol. Haha citrus do well here. We have warmer weather varieties but personally I think citrus especially mandarins and oranges taste better grown further south in colder climates. The reaction between the cold and the carbohydrates makes them sweeter. When ive lived in colder places I always wait for a frost or good chill before harvest.
