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.

Covid Passport for the elderly

Penny from Waikanae Beach

How can I get my 89 year old husband a Covid passport? He has had his 2 vaccines and he has the same details as me.

My covid passport was easy to get we had our vaccines on the same day and were not given any "card" at Waikanae Beach medical centre as they had run out. My husband doesn't drive or travel., We had an old passport and an out of date driving licence they are rejected by the website. Also as he was born in 1932, that was too late to use the birth certificate we have. He has a Myheath account but that also doesn't work!!!
We are told we have to provide up to date Password, Driving licence, or birth certificate, but 1932 is too old to be accepted. We don't have those bits of identification and he don't need them. He wouldn't get a licence anyway. I have emailed Ministry of Health Covid line. No answer yet. Has anyone else had this experience? If so could you give me some suggestions so my husband can get his passport and travel around the district easily and freely.

The pictures of the protest at parliament this week were concerning. Trump masks, Trump flags and coded messages dismissing Joe Biden seem to have little to do with our situation in New Zealand.

Below is a piece by Nicky Hager, courtesy of The Spinoff, that I wanted to share with you. Please feel free to share it with other friends also.



Nicky Hager: My message to friends who joined this week’s protest
Nicky Hager | Guest writer
Opinion
Are these really the people you want to align yourself with?
Dear vaccine hesitant friends,
I know you feel worried about vaccines. I understand you feel picked on for not getting the vaccine. But I am feeling disturbed that quite a few good, principled people I know took part in the November 9 anti-vaccine march on parliament. It has impelled me to write.
When people I know march down the road with white supremacists, Trump supporters, fundamentalist Christians, people who are pro-guns, anti-UN, anti-immigrant and anti-Jewish, people who believe a powerful “them” want to kill millions and enslave the earth, things have got totally out of hand.
On Tuesday, this was what you were part of:
1. Many of the prominent people on the march were espousing exactly the same extreme and confused views before the Covid pandemic began. Their current campaigning is exploiting the vaccine issue to push those prior-existing beliefs. They were using your presence at their protest to promote dangerous, marginal ideas.
2. Another set of people in the protest came directly from the anti-1080 campaign, the sadly mistaken idea that Department of Conservation staff are recklessly poisoning human water supplies and trying to kill or mind-control the population. Notice how easily they transferred these ideas to a totally different context of a virus pandemic and vaccination. Remember that anti-1080 people have been willing to threaten other people’s lives if they disagreed with them.
3. Then there is a whole package of Trumpian ideas about the government and news media being enemies of ordinary people. It was in pro-Trump protests in the US that resistance to and denial of Covid were first used as a rallying point for far-right ideas. That is where the political model being seen here began. Do you feel comfortable being part of this?
4. The Trumpian politics have come with the US ideas about “freedom”, meaning freedom of the individual to do what they like and stuff everyone else. In New Zealand, the dominant values are much more about community and caring for each other. Freedom sounds good, but it’s a slogan for deeply conservative and unattractive ideas that deny or avoid the responsibility we have for others.
5. On top of all this, I strongly suspect the Covid resistance is being actively used by some on the right of New Zealand politics to try to destabilise Jacinda Ardern and the Labour Government. Already it has familiar fingerprints all over it. Notice how the recent farmer protests (on entirely different issues of environment policy) use the same extreme anti-Jacinda and anti-Labour script about communism and lies. There are strong signs of orchestration with the rural protests as well.
6. But the most the repellent part of the Covid protests is the constant hatred and violent, misogynist threats directed at Jacinda Ardern as a woman prime minister and at many other women in positions of authority. What on earth are liberal, enlightened people doing in the company of these violent, racist, anti-women people?
We’ve seen these elements in New Zealand before. But the current toxic brew is strong and brings all these parts together at once.
I hope all this will blow over. I hope that few years from now it will be hard to find any normal person who wants to admit they took part in this madness. But in the meantime, something ugly and dangerous is occurring and you should not be part of it.
As Toby Manhire wrote on Wednesday, “reasonable New Zealanders who wish to protest the vaccine mandates have an urgent responsibility today: to actively, vocally disavow and denounce the violent cheerleaders they find themselves marching alongside.”
This includes you, reasonable New Zealander friends: please actively, vocally disavow and denounce the violent cheerleaders. Please realise that your concerns are being exploited for other agendas. And never, ever join or support this kind of fascist protest again.
