Veggie Plants Waikanae and Otaki Markets This Weekend

Val from Otaki District

We still have good supplies of most heirloom tomato varieties but this will be the last weekend for some. Lovely strong plants that need planting now. $3.00 each or 6 for $15.
This week we are featuring the hard-to-get 'Perfect Flame', which we regard as the Rolls Royce of yellow/orange tomatoes with a sweet tangy taste and superior disease resistance.
Also 'Kumato', one of the best of the more recent introductions, with reddish brown/green coloration and superb taste.
We also have sweet capsicum (red, yellow and purple) plus several varieties of zucchini, scallopini and pumpkin/squash as well as kumara and basil.
Next week we are hoping our cucumber and hot chillies will be ready.

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

It is not Friday but here here is a bonus Friday Feathered Friend from Rosa Marie.
"Just something to make the bird loving followers smile a little....
One of our resident blackbirds has decided that he would prefer bathing in our cat's outdoor water bowl rather than in our very posh and elegant bird birth! His sparrow mate had to make do with washing in the puddle created by the blackbird's vigorous ablutions!"
