More becoming available each week. Please pm me if you would like the full list of available varieties or if you would like to purchase.
Heirloom varieties are those which have stood the test of time and have superior taste (and often greater health benefits) than those commercially grown for the supermarkets. Some have been around for literally hundreds of years.
Large well-grown plants ready to plant as soon as the ground finally warms up. $3.00 each.
A range of colours and sizes to suit every use, from salads and salsas to preserves and pickles.

Also dwarf and climbing beans, snow peas and Zucchini, including 'Partenon', an ideal early season variety as it is self fertile and will set fruit in cooler weather when bee activity is low.

A lovely account of the joy of photographing birds by Rosa Marie.

"A few bird shots taken over the last couple of days! The tuis do feature very heavily in the shots, as they are such wonderful birds to capture, but I have also managed to find redpoles pecking on the grass at school and a lone Rosella! I also spotted a hedge sparrow peering out from the safe haven of a bush. The waxeyes were having a feast in the school compost bin.
Our resident gammy legged blackbird entertained me as he played with his food, a juicy fat worm, then he flew onto the fence to sing to me! He was with us this time last year and we were so thrilled that he came back again this year!"

Retail and hospitality, an avionics hub, 2000 new homes and an airport less than half its current land area is part of a new vision for Kāpiti Coast Airport.
The plan for a reimagined airport was launched at business networking event on Wednesday by Kāpiti Air Urban​, a group formerly called Save Kāpiti Airport. The airport is owned by property developer Templeton Group, which purchased the land in 2019.
Along with the new homes and an avionics tech hub, the group's ideas include an emergency management hub, commercial precinct, regional terminal, open spaces and eco-accommodation.
