Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at brizzymaysbooksandbruschettasite.wordpress.com

Did you know that joining toilet paper and pasta on the list of panic-buying items at the start of the pandemic, sales of herb and vegetable plants shot up 27 per cent in Australia? Did you know that a separate trend report shows respondents intend to keep growing their own edible plants?

I confess to being included in the 27 per cent and admit that scouting for fertilisers, soil enhancers, and weed and bug chemicals keeps me busy on weekends. Although my garden may not be the stuff of Home Beautiful, my bruschetta made from all homegrown ingredients is a hit with family and friends. My minestrone is also a huge success.



Likewise, spending on pets hit record levels topping $13 billion in Australia alone. Amazingly, it is estimated that more than half the global population share their lives with one or more pets. This means that as well as tending my vegetable patch, I'm also on the lookout for treats for the grand furbaby - Bentley.



So where is my favourite one-stop-shop for garden needs and pet supplies?

Redlands Produce - Pets and Garden is located at 8 Boundary Road, Thornlands, in the large green shed just up from the nursery. You can't miss it.



Upon entry, you will be greeted by the best customer service representatives I've ever encountered - a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo and two inquisitive Galahs. The shelves are lined with all the usual pet accoutrements, as well as treats such as live Mealworms.



There are the popular feathered friends for sale including Finches and Budgies, as well as an air-conditioned Fish Room if scales are more your thing. For those who like their eggs fresh, a selection of chickens are available for purchase, with or without the Mealworms. And my Bentley just loved his pack of Puppy-chinos for Christmas.



For gardeners, there is sugar cane mulch, potting mix, lawn seed, fertilisers and so much more. Is it a bit sad when weed killer gets you excited?



When Bentley next comes for a prolonged visit, I know I'll be taking him to Redlands Produce for the DIY Dog Wash, so much easier than lifting him in and out of the bath at home.



What are the opening hours for Redlands Produce?
Monday through to Saturday: 7:30am to 5pm
Sunday : 8am to 4pm

May, honestly I must follow you around the Redlands as you visit my haunts. Good article.

I like stores with a difference May. Sad to see birds in cages. We used to have a dog called Bentley. I told everyone we called it Bentley because we couldn't afford a Rolls-Royce.
