Habaneros for sale (like chillies but much hotter)

Hayden from Johnsonville

Hi everyone,
My little 12 year-old sister and I have some more freshly-picked, pesticide-free habaneros off our bush that we would like to sell to earn some pocket money.

Hi everyone,
My little 12 year-old sister and I have some more freshly-picked, pesticide-free habaneros off our bush that we would like to sell to earn some pocket money.

The $1 coin is for size reference, these habaneros are much bigger than chillies I have seen at the local supermarket retailing for $1:30 each (picture included indicating size relative to a $1 coin) and are really hot so you only need to cut up a small portion into food. Habaneros store well in the freezer so any leftover can be frozen until needed for up to a few months.

$1 each or 6 for $5.

I also have some that I have frozen that we would still like to sell at a rate of 2 for $1.50.

Covid-19 safety precautions:
It is recommended that you rinse produce thoroughly with hot water.
See covid19.govt.nz....

🔥CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC ALERT 🔥

🍋💦 I have TWO BIG REASONS to keep your phone far away from your face!

One is immediate, and the other is long-range.

1 – IMMEDIATE: It’s covered in bacteria (10x more than many toilet seats, according to scientists), and if that’s not enough for you ...

2 – LONG RANGE: Some experts worry that cell phones are linked with an increased risk of cancer, but others disagree. This is a big topic of ongoing research with mixed findings.

The Takeaway: Get out those earbuds and/or use your speakerphone as much as possible.

And be sure to check the guidelines for your phone for the best way to keep it clean!

Stop the agapanthus invasion

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Agapanthus are flowering freely at the moment so it is a good time to think about how you can stop them from spreading by deadheading them.
In some parts of New Zealand they are considered an invasive weed.

Hi, has anyone seen this tortie? She responds to Nugget. She’s three years old, microchipped, is an indoor cat and can be quite comfortable with people. She has a nude Pawsome Couture collar with her name and number on the tag.

We haven’t seen her since around 7/8pm last night. She doesn’t usually wander from our neighbourhood (around Broadmeadows and Raroa) but we’ve been around and still can’t find her. Please let us know if you’ve seen her. We have had her since she was a wee kitten and we brought her with us from the South Island; she is very loved and we just want her to come home.

Hi there my name is Simba, I am a big ole handsome man looking for my forever home.
I am a little shy and will tolerate gentle pants so I would love a quiet, patient home with no children (teenagers may be fine) and no other animals.
I would love a home where I can potter around and toast myself in the sun. I do come with a medical waiver that my new owners would need to be aware of.
If you think you are the home for me please contact the Feline Team at SPCA’s Wellington Centre.

Hi neighbours,

What do you think about the Wellington City Council's move to ban "bottomless brunches?"

All-you-can-drink alcoholic beverages over a restaurant brunch could be in jeopardy after councillors indicated a ban on such deals.

Several establishments across the city offer unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for a fixed price and this has led to complaints of excessive drinking.

Wellington City Council spokesman Richard MacLean mentioned that several complaints were being followed up by council and police regarding these "all you can drink" deals.

“The ‘bottomless brunch' arrangements are a clear breach of liquor-licensing laws - which are designed to rule out irresponsible consumption of alcohol and intoxication,” MacLean said.
