- Lanie at Edible Urban Garden
- I have a little garden in Rozelle about 5km from the centre of Sydney. I love to grow as much organic food as I can in a tiny space. The garden calms and excites me, and is a wonderful little green space in a big city. This blog is a record plotting the changes over seasons and years.

One potato, two potato...
What a bumper crop! Particularly special as they were the kid's plants. Two boys = two planting sites (1) a potato bag (2) about 800mm x 600mm of raised garden bed, both planted out with a variety of seed potatoes. All of the soil was a mix of compost and duck manure, hilled with straw. The green bag potato harvest was definitely the winner. Probably 25 potatoes, no diseases, mostly a good size. I love seeing the kids enjoying the garden and the root crops seem to be the biggest drawcard.
