To weed or not to weed ....?

Erina from Sydenham

Wow. This is what greeted me in my wee vege patch after a fortnight away on leave. My veges are thriving - all but one broccoli plant in amongst them all tho, so I thought to give them a bloody good soak before I tackled the "invaders" today. I wonder what they are?
Only thing I can think of is the mulch I threw over the patch last winter made up of oak leaves from the park across the road.......? Dig them back in or put to compost? What say you Discerners?

Mike Yardley: How can so many New Zealanders still smoke?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The proposed Smokefree 2025 Action Plan includes significantly reducing the number of retailers able to sell tobacco, limiting the nicotine content of cigarettes, and raising the age of purchase every year, so that anyone born after 2004 could never lawfully be sold tobacco.

Columnist Mike Yardley says most lower-income earners who smoke shell out more money in tobacco excise than they do in income tax.

"They should be vigorously urged to switch to vaping as a smoking cessation alternative, given it’s not just far less hazardous to their health, but also to their back pocket," he says.
