Delicious Robyn. Do you make anything special or just eat them?

we just eat them, sometime roast them in the oven with salt.
Or make a macadamia brittle with toffee.

K Atie, tough stuff that silver beet. Kale is also a survivor.Iíve got Little Gem lettuce under plastic domes. Radishes growing slowly. Lots of Spinach. All in raised beds.

I've just got a few broad beans in my vege garden.  Waiting for a chance to establish a herb garden - at the moment I've only got thyme, oregano (or marjoram - I am not sure of the difference!) and parsley for it but there will be space for more so I will have to give it some thought.

Marina, I love my herbs. As well as in the garden I have a pot just outside the door. Very handy.

Marina, I have a herb big pot, on my front deck, near the kitchen, so handy.
Plenty of bananas on our trees at the moment.

When we (eventually) get this renovation done here in Melbourne we will be incorporating a green wall and I will be pushing for herbs in that as well.

I guess that isnít a wall painted green! A herb wall possibly? It sounds wonderful. My parsley and basil grow under the roses and rosemary, oregano and thyme try to take over a garden bed out the side of the house.

Yes the bananas taste so good, we have a few varieties, and sugar bananas, and plantains that you use for cooking.

Lots of herbs, dill, Chinese five herb, mint growing wild.
