"Suckers", that's the name for the little laterals that can be pruned off from a tomato plant. The stick in the photo below is pointing to a sucker. All suckers below the first fruiting cluster (yellow flowers in photo) can be pruned out. Best to prune and tressel tomatoes within the first 6-8weeks of them planting out into the garden. We will be pruning and tresselling our tomatoes this Thursday at the Okines Community Garden if you want to come find out more, see you at The Garden between 11-1pm this Thursday. ...

Community composting in action, your waste is our plant food! This lovely addition to our compost bays is thanks to the clever action of our local Dodges Ferry Primary School kids at the recent community fete. A great story to share with our Premier Will Hodgman (when he arrives at Okines Community House on Monday at 3pm), let's ask him to put money into local communities to reuse waste. It is a great step towards reaching (not) climate change goals. Imagine compost bins throughout the community and a purpose built bicycle with trailer to boot, collecting the cargo and riding it back to the community garden for recycling. Puts another level onto active volunteering! ... See MoreSee Less
