Hi Christy, these ones don't go clucky as they don't lay much but l have some younger ones that do go clucky often. l have had them since 5mths and this is their 2nd year. They would still need some work to be really tame but aren't too bad.

hi jenny - possibly interested - we have brown shavers as laying hens but my six year old wants her 'own' (so need to be quite tame) and i would like a couple of hens that go broody every so often to hatch my duck eggs (who are hopeless sitters) - woudl they be suitable for that?

l have 2 older bantams that I need to move on as the neighbours are complaining. Would anyone have a home for them or know where l could find a home for them. l'm not good at wringing necks or chopping heads. l'm in West Auckland

Im going to set my still up on this gorgeous sunny day and distil a patch of Lemon Balm (melissa officianalis). 30ml of the hydrosol in a litre of water with a little honey, lemon juice and fresh ginger is a warming winter drink. I hope I may even get a ml or 2 of precious oil to dilute in Jojoba oil.

If this is the sort of activity you may enjoy - check our workshop schedule

Waiheke Island Cheesemaking Course, by the lovely (and knowledgable!) Katherine Mowbray. Hosted by Owhanake Bay Estate

3 Cheeses from 1 bucket of milk with a 'bit' of mascarpone on the side.
Halloumi, Feta, Ricotta and Mascarpone, Sunday 24 June 12pm - 3:30pm, $120 per person, with tastings of boutique NZ cheeses for a light snack, plus some delicious Owhanake wines.

Katherine says "bring your friends and learn the skills together. Bring community back into your kitchens", which fits perfectly with our Island philsophy, and definitely something we are keen to support. I've been to one of Katherine's courses before and thoroughly recommend it.

For bookings (and more info) please email Katherine on

I'm running a workshop series on food growing for apartment dwellers, starting this Thursday. If you know anyone who lives in the central city who's keen on growing food, they can sign up for the workshops here: ('Gardening for Balconies', down near the bottom). Cheers!

I planted 5 spaghetti squash seeds to see if they would grow. They did. Unofrutnately, I have no room for them. Would anyone like them? I'm in Eden Terrace.

I'm currently ripping out agapanthus. What's the best way to get rid of the corms so that they don't resprout? I have kilos and kilos of them.

Also cannas available. Salmon-coloured flowers and deep red/mahogany leaves.

I sow and plant beetroot all year round on waiheke. i like the cylindrical variety and 'bulls blood' for dark red leaves.
