Has anyone received a automated voice message from Spark as of lately? Our phone has been getting this quite recently. Has happened to us about 3 times now. I haven't been able to write the whole auto message so I don't know what the message has been about. Apparently my mum did hear the automated message more throughly and was saying that your broadband had been disconnected or something like that?, which was not true. Spark will not ring us or anyone regarding our broadband or our phone lines. It sounds like those phone calls about Microsoft. They say they want to look at your computer. You can say "No, but can I look at your computer?" Microsoft never rings you directly to have your computer checked.
Our gardens are getting smaller, so NZ Gardener wants to come up with some suggestions for edible crops that do well in pots and small spaces! Suggest the crops that have done well for you (ideally specify a variety) and tell other keen gardeners how you grew them, how they performed for you, and any practical advice you would pass on to ensure a great result with that crop, and any secret tips you are prepared to pass on! If your tip is used in the magazine, you'll receive a free copy... And of course the glory of being in New Zealand's favourite gardening magazine! Click on the link to send us your best tips.

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Wattie’s NZ and the 150 schools who took part in this year's Cans for Good campaign. Thanks to the incredible effort of students, teachers and whānau, over 30,000 cans were collected and will make a huge difference to Salvation Army foodbanks around Aotearoa.
Wattie’s generously donated a further 25,000 cans taking the total number collected to over 56,000 cans.
