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?

A query re Neighbourly posts and the ability to reply

Erina from Sydenham

I wonder if anyone else does NOT have the option to reply in a post? There are the Like, Thank, but no Reply button?
It isn't on all posts but it just in some. I've checked my settings but all seems to be as they always have been.
It is a mystery and very frustrating when someone responds to a post and you cannot reply.
Oh, and "Ask Neighbourly Help" I hear you ask? Um, no luck there either!!
Cheers if you can help with this Neighbours, Foes and anyone else.

Couplands planning to break the law on Anzac Day

John from Spreydon

I am deeply disturbed that Couplands bakery are planning to break the law on Anzac Day and open their shops on Sunday morning. (I have checked, and all retail establishments are required to close.) This is deeply disrepectful to our fallen servicemen and women. When a business puts profit ahead of proper behaviour, that is reprehensible.

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern Outlook

Hi Canterbury,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.
