Apollo Tomato

These are the most flavoursome tomato. Literally make your taste buds dance!

They are easy to grow, medium sized bush and fruit and have produced through this dry period with no problem. Always the best way to trial varieties - in a tough season. Early maturing and heavy cropper. Highly recommended for challenging conditions.

Blueberry Cherry Tomato Seed. A cherry tomato from the breeder Brad Gates in the USA. Very dark purple colour which means that it is super rich in anthocyanins. Unripe, the fruits are a glowing amethyst purple. At maturity, they turn deep red where the fruit was shaded. The areas that received intense sunshine are a rich purple, almost black. The flavour is intensely fruity and sugar-sweet. Plants are very productive, yielding all season in elongated clusters that are so beautiful.

Selling fresh seed with a high germination rate that was produced in the Gin Gin area. Easy to grow.

$2 postage 50 seeds to a packet. $4 a packet. Payment is by Direct Bank Deposit and seeds are promptly posted out.

Squatters Hut Heirloom Poultry

After an in depth review of the past year of poultry keeping, I have decided to concentrate on breeding and showing only 2 breeds of fowl. The magnificent, dual purpose Rhode Island White and the stunning Salmon Faverolle. Both breeds are in need of preservation and are not easily sourced.

I will also breed and show the white sebastopol geese and white mammoth muscovy duck.

At the bottom of this decision is economy, with feed and medications being so expensive.

An extensive list of breeds will still be available as sexed and vaccinated day olds. This list will always be pinned to the top of this page.

A big thank you to Michelle Flynn of Daisy Plains Poultry for her mammoth effort of hatching all my chicks this season, as I live off grid.

Steroids Chicken Tractor in action with Geoff Lawton

Brilliant way of running chickens. Feed costs are ridiculous and makes poultry keeping non-viable. The poultry are free and happy, scratching as they should. They are eating high protein, natural food that produces eggs, happy poultry and compost. I am using a similar system with my heirloom poultry stud.Only I have added pigs to the system as well. They add natural fertilizer and root up the harder material and make it available to the poultry. I feed 3 pigs and 50 poultry on $40 a month. That $40 buys a 400 kg bin of sweet potatoes and a bag of mixed grain. A differences between Geoff's system and mine is that I add copious amounts of free green material, weeds, grass and herbs. I also feed boiled sweet potatoes, pumpkins and other scraps. Plus, I do throw in a handful of mixed grain, to the whole lot, to make them scratch and look for food.
