Hi Helen - I've had problems getting some of my capsicums up and running, and the egg plants, but other than those, everything is doing pretty well. Oh, a few tomato plants looking sad, most are terrific though. Will wait to see whether it's the bumper crop I had last year.

Hi everyone, Potatoes and tomatoes and mints doing really well, but not much else  -  seems to be a strange season , anyone agree ?? Or maybe it is just lack of tlc ..... cheers, Helen

Desperately in need of lemons. I have plum sauce and/or mustard pickle to exchange.

Hi Helen you were asking about seeds and where to buy? I go to Kings Seeds nz website. Or if you just want a couple of packets Green Door Havelock North sells them too. Good luck. Oh the hay, I would use it as mulch, especially around any fruit trees that you plant this coming winter.
