Hello friends and family
The week started warm, so I did a round of the bees, then on Tuesday we got 18 mm of rain – I am sure that the vegetables doubled in size over night! Tuesday was my town day, which meant I could catch up with Raewyn and Hugh which was nice.
Adrian and Chris came up on Thursday. We set up some more water tanks to enable us to water all our plants with a hose which means no more carting water. Water is very heavy when you have hundreds of trees to water.
Hiltrun arrived in time for tea and on Friday we did a full round of the nests to make sure that all the chicks were Okay. At this stage of their development, they are beginning to leave the nest boxes and explore their surrounds. It can be difficult to find them. We have had some early “post Guard” where both parents go out fishing so us cameras to check that both are Okay.
Friday was busy! Jan came out to sell calendars to the tourists and Ada visited from Whitianga. Last night Patrick and Nola shouted me out to dinner at the tavern. Lucky me!
Have a great week!
