Winter diary

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.

I miss my chickens - if anyone in Akl needs to get rid of a couple of layers please…
