Haven't seen any for a few months, think they have moved on. Someone shot one a few metres the other side of my boundary. One of the stray bullets hit one of my steers    Bugger. 

Managed to save him. Had him in the race tending to him daily for about 6 weeks. Touch and go. Just as well I'm stubborn and steer was easy to tend too....

Wow. That's no good Mr Moritz! Never had any 'collateral damage'  and hope to keep it that way. Country life though, pretty hard to beat

My garden is coming to life, especially the weeds! I’ve planted Potatoes, tomatoes, beetroot, kamokamo, pumpkins and various leafy vegetables . The blueberry shrubs are looking good and we should get a good yield. I’ve decided to grow potatoes in large 50 litre pots, it’s a first for me to grow them in pots, but I’ll see how it goes.

Schecter, grab some card board (tape and staples removed or a few layers of newspaper lay down overlapping and put lawn clippings on top. done. No weeds till next crop. And what’s left feeds your plants. I weed about a cup of weeds every 3 -4 weeks. And garden 30m by 10m. A bit of landing with this technique. Sorted. 👍😀

Nice mate.  We don't save newspaper and cardboard like we use to, but i'll start keeping it aside.  

A few years ago I was walking around the neighbourhood when I noticed a property with corrugated iron sheets laid across the entire lawn.  Being a nosey bloke that I am, I knocked on the guys door and asked him why did he laid the sheets on the lawn?   He said it was to stop the weeds from growing and to give his veges ahead start.  He also had a great vege garden, and he gave me some large pumpkins to take home.

Nice, us gardeners always seem to have a little surplus. By the time I mow my lawns there are too many seed heads in it to put on my garden Big smile

Cardboard is a good option though and I use it here and there

Managed to get down to the kaipara on the weekend to check on my plot, and remembered to take a picture this time. Spuds are booming and shored up for the last time(maybe). Yacons are happy and starting to shoot away finally. Beetroot and red onions are happy as a pig in ****.

Click the square with arrow pointing to 3 o'clock top of input form, that expands the input form and gives access to tree in square which lets you input JPEG photos. 

Hope that makes sense...Thumbs Up

I sometimes get errors if I go too quick. I give it a couple of seconds each step to give it time to think, but if you are doing it from a phone I have never tried that...

Can remember round 25years back almost end of November Waikato was hit with heavy frost most of the maize planted was flattened.
This year our potatoes going well ,corn / pumpkins ect not so good. Asparagus grows well until hit with another SE /SW/ S breeze then they all pull up again, need some very warm sunny day's. Fishing has been pretty good though.
