"Oh no that's really sad. it's not as though there would be any pesticides in your gardens and certainly more than enough bee friendly plants for them to forage. There are a few hives on the perimeter of our garden and Kristy, the bee…"

"Does anyone want some Yacon (edible or reproductive tubers)? It would have to be quick though, they are coming out next weekend and at least the edible tubers don't last long once they are out of the soil."

Winter diary

Have dug in the sheet composted coffee grounds and grass clippings. I think it makes a better veggie bed combining the organic matter with the topsoil although no-dig purists may disapprove. Have planted out a lot of self sown corn and lettuce seedlings and mixed the corn with broad beans. Need to add squash for the Mexican triumvirate. The whole site is covered in weeds now and we are finally getting some mandarins, lemons, limes and oranges.

Gluten free

Junko has researched and perfected a number of gluten free bread and cake recipes to get me off the wheat energy roller coaster. I don't fall asleep in the afternoon now and my bakery bill has dropped. She's using mixtures of spelt, rye, rice, corn and potato flours. Some taro and a couple of bananas have survived where I chucked them in the corner soak hole where the run-off ends up. Comfrey is everywhere. I miss my chickens - if anyone in Akl needs to get rid of a couple of layers please…
