Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

What are your plans for back-to-back days above 30 degrees?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Monday Christchurch,

It's set to be a scorcher of a week in The Garden City.

MetService's seven-day forecast says Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to hit highs of 35 and 32 degrees respectively – well over January's average maximum temperature of 23 degrees.

A high of 28 degrees is forecast for Monday (today).

How will you make the most of (or avoid) the heat this week?

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?
