Hi Basketeers!

Welcome to the Drysdale Harvest Basket blog!

I've set up this blog to provide Drysdale Harvest Basket members (and the wider gardening community) with the opportunity to discuss home veg and fruit growing and any other topics relating to our monthly Harvest Basket meetings.

So, if you want to swap recipes, share knowledge or get advice, post a comment below.

(All comments are moderated, so there will be a delay before your comment appears on the blog.)

    Would you like to write a post about your wood fired oven for the blog? With a couple of photos?? If so, email me at and I'll sign you up as an author.
