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?
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?
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.
