Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Gardens

Leigh from Blenheim

I have mature raspberry canes that I would like thinned. This would be a good time to grab a few as they are just waking up. Replant them and you will have raspberries in a few weeks - just keep their roots wet in wet newspaper and not take a bucket of my soil like a person did last year.

I have mature raspberry canes that I would like thinned. This would be a good time to grab a few as they are just waking up. Replant them and you will have raspberries in a few weeks - just keep their roots wet in wet newspaper and not take a bucket of my soil like a person did last year.
These have been growing in compost stuff from Bunnings that I just put on top of my gardens - not dug in, and it has worked down about 30cm into the soil now and its rich deep and full of life, so if you want to replant it that might help.
Give me a call. Leigh 0276770087.
These will be dug up and thrown away soon so act now.
