Fair play or bureaucracy gone mad?

Virginia Fallon Reporter from Kāpiti Observer

A Waikanae cafe owner has been told she has to move a picnic table off the public walkway outside her business, or pay for a licence.
Take a look at the attached story and let us know what you think. Is it a fair request from the council or a step too far?

Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?

Heirloom Tomato Plants and Other Vegetables

Val from Otaki District

My last post under this heading! Waikanae and Otaki weekend markets this weekend.
We have some limited late plantings of the following rarely available heirloom tomatoes - all suitable for late planting and some especially suited to produce into late autumn:
Amy's Sugar Gem - suitable for greenhouses
Kumato - intense flavour sensation
Monkey Ass - (use your imagination!) produces until first frost
Moonglow - excellent source of lycopene
Rumi Banjan - should produce until May at least
Tangella - disease resistant and high in lycopene
Coyote - sprawling wild Mexican tomato
Dancing with Smurfs - Small, ripens to deep purple-blue
Small Sweet Orange - very sweet, high in lycopene.
Other vegies include Zucchini, spring onion, herbs, Capsicum and eggplant. Flowering perennials: gazanias and lilies. Otaki Pinks and other dianthus coming soon.
