About me

Industry Biotech
Occupation Geneticist (PhD Student at the moment)
Location Roodepoort, Gauteng, South Africa
Introduction I am a Geneticist in the Agricultural Industry who dabbles in the art of sustainable food production. This blog provides a practical way of putting my knowledge that I have learned during my degrees to good use. I have always been fooling around with plants, but started 'serious' vegetable/fruit gardening in August 2010. So far, I have had success with most vegetable attempts, read several books and articles on gardening, attended several edible plant growing workshops, am almost providing all the vegetables we consume from the garden and loving the learning process! Feel free to join me and my urban homesteading endeavours for practical advise and light entertainment. I am moving Root 'n' Shoots to Whisker Flowers - please join me there @
Interests Stuffin my brain with as much knowledge and learning as many skills as possible - which might include lockpicking and skateboarding in the near future!

Never mind the turtle. Don't you think you're sure to win?

Except in the mystical magical mathematical dimension of integration and differentiation I would not. But in the real world - hell yeah!
