Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We have 2 gardens - one is a lifestyle block in the Waikato with 50+ maturing species of fruit and nut trees, and the other is a tiny beach house garden with mature figs, guava's, loquats, pawpaws, grapes and Feijoa's on the coast in Stanmore Bay. My partner and I also own a business which grows yacon on (contracted) organic farms to export as a syrup ( functional food helps promote a good digestive balance)- and sell syrup and raw tubers in NZ too! Having grown up in farming communities where semi self sufficiency is a way of life most of my skills are inherent and I am loving learning more.

Wendy I have read that you take out the leaves that crowd the grapes to let the sun on them.Also if you have a lot of grapes i would be inclined to only keep the best.I will be doing mine in the next few days.

yes Wendy, its a stoat, from volunteering with DoC. I had caught ones before in the traps, but this one I not only caught, but set the trap for it too, therefore recorded in memory as the very first native-bird-muncher 100% caught by me. What a proud moment (actually a few weeks after the moment, which is why its frozen).
