: possible sighting Pukete ramp Sunday afternoon. They left the padded seats so bare seated.
I have been wondering why in particulat the Chinese have been street spraying. I now see the reason behind this decision.
This afternoon at approx 3;45pm when my partner was on his way to work at Te Rapa Countdown a white SUV banged into MY car that my partner was driving. My partner did oblige with a horn toot and the 1 finger salute to the female driver who did NOT stop. You will know who you are because your SUV will have dark blue paint on it now where your new dent will be. I would like to let this female know she was lucky it was not me driving my car as I would have chased her down and she would not be happy. This year has been a shitty year so far with our cat mauled by dogs and now this lockdown with a severe income shortage. Now I have a dent in a car I can't afford to insure or afford to get fixed. If you can't drive decently or stop when you have done wrong then you should NOT be on the F#&%*# road.
Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,
Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).
In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.
We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone.
