The Yogalates™ method, created in New South Wales, is now for the first time available in Tasmania.

With brassica planting upon us I’d like to spread the word that help is at hand. I’m selling insect netting for veggie gardeners called GrowCover that’s sure to keep the pests at bay.

Our adventure with GrowCover began in subtropical New South Wales in 2009 where the only enemies were cabbage moths that decimated brassicas and almost destroyed the commitment to backyard veggie growing. We bought some GrowCover out of desperation and installed it in our tiny suburban backyard. From then on we had fantastic success with brassicas including mini cabbage, bok choy, broccoli and kale grown under cover.

At the risk of sounding like a salesperson, since beginning our gardening life in the relative wilds of Woodbridge, GrowCover has saved us from insanity in the fight with possums, blackbirds, chooks and our old enemy the cabbage moth. In addition to pest deterrence, I’m using it successfully to speed up germination given the cooler climate, and last year had a bumper crop of tomatoes from our rejuvenated poly tunnel, using GrowCover instead of plastic to create a warmer environment without the risk of damage from too much heat.

If you’d like to check out my garden at Woodbridge, and pictures of GrowCover in action. See

This food processor has had little use and comes with a selection of attachments so that you can slice, chop, grate, whisk egg whites and knead dough. It is very strong and is considered to be one of the best on the market.
