Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

THIS 'N' THAT FROM THE VEGGIE GARDEN

The blueberries are plumping up nicely. This is the second year so the crop is small, but enough berries from two bushes for a few meals for the two of us.

Yes, Yes, Yes, I have tomatoes at last.

I like to grow scarlet runner beans for the pretty flowers as well as for their delicious beans.

Royal burgundy bush beans are new to the vegetable garden this year, and so far they are performing very well, with many blooms.

The lettuce has bolted, and I thought to pull it and toss it onto the compost, but I have another use for it.

No bolted lettuce is going to waste around here.

Your bunnies are so cute. That's the best thing you could do with it. Your tomatoes look so yummy. Ready to pick. Have you had a tomato sandwich yet? Coming along nicely.

Awww, what cute bunnies. The blueberry looks great. I hope ours gets larger. We have 2 new plants.

Very Beautiful. A walk around your garden could get you into a very nice frame of mind!

adorable and grateful little bunnies :) Funny I'm drowning in blueberries but not one red tomato yet... Nice wee dander, thank you

Look at you making the bunnies day! I planted the burgundy bush bean too. I'm looking forward to their harvest!
