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

Yay! the sun came out, at least for a little while.

I have been waiting, it seems like for many weeks to get back out into the vegetable garden to plant more seeds. Finally, this afternoon the sun came to warm up the day to where it was very comfortable outdoors.
I took advantage of the lovely day to check on the kale and pea seeds I planted almost a month ago, and found they are starting to sprout, then I planted another row of peas, sugar snap this time, and some loose leaf lettuce seeds. Tomorrow, weather permitting, I plan on planting beets and radishes. Of course everything is snuggled under row covers for protection from the elements and birds.

How nice to see sun again. Good luck to your adventure with veggie seeds. Over here, sun had overstayed... too hot and very dry with no rains for 3 weeks already.
