The tomatoes are ready to go in the ground as soon as you are ready to plant. This week we are featuring a number of varieties suitable for pot culture, including WindowBox Red, Ildi and Subarctic Plenty, said to be the world's earliest tomato and especially suited to a shorter growing season.
We have a good range of colourful cherry tomatoes - but note 'Sweet 100' will not be available until next weekend.
We have a number of different Zucchini, including the lovely crisp Italian varieties, plus some pumpkin and scallopini. And the beans (both climbing and dwarf) are just bursting to get out of their punnets and into the ground.
So come see us at the Waikanae(Saturday) and Otaki (Sunday)markets this weekend.

A tree just North of Levin

Paul from Levin

I was driving North from Levin on HW1 this morning and noticed this tree. So later I got my camera and returned. I photographed from the boundary fence so no trespass involved, just telephoto lenses.

Why Wool is Cool

• The fleece of sheep has been used to make human clothing since the Stone Age.
• Wool flourishes where there is rain and sunshine. These two elements sustain the grassy fields that sheep graze on. Shearers shave off the wool every year before the weather gets too hot. Wool is the ultimate renewable fibre.
• Wool from about 61 sheep extend all the way from the earth to the moon.
• Wool may be made from mixtures of hair from sheep, alpaca, llama, camel, cashmere, mohair, angora, vicuna, yak, guanaco, beaver or otter. No animals are harmed in the harvesting of wool.
• Wool is flame-resistant. It will not melt and stick to your skin like synthetic fibres. Instead, wool will usually smoulder and extinguish itself when the source of the flame has been removed. The fibre of choice for casinos and airlines.
• The fastest recorded time to shear a sheep is 39.31 seconds by Hilton Barrett of Australia.
• Wool is composed of same protein that makes up the outer protective layer of your skin.
• Have you ever wondered why your wool socks withstand foot stench longer than cotton or synthetic socks? Wool is naturally mildew and mould resistant because it is a natural moisture repellent, MEANING LESS STINK. Wool also reduces dust mite activity (they do not like wool!).

• Over its lifetime, a sheep’s fleece will absorb approximately 30Kg of carbon dioxide.
