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

It is exciting to anticipate all the fruit and veggies I will harvest

Some of the strawberries are starting to show a blush of color.

It promises to be a good year for a bumper blueberry harvest.

Perhaps this year I may have some sweet bell peppers as they are being grown within the warming
 'walls of water'

Blue Lake beans pushing up through their warming blanket of straw.

I am happy to see some tomatoes filling out. I can almost taste their sweetness already.

I have already picked some of the lettuce and the peas are about a foot tall, winding their way up the supports.

So if everything keeps growing at this rate we will have plenty of wonderful homegrown produce to enjoy over the summer months on into the winter.

Oh, I am so jealous of your tomatoes! I have flowers but no fruit yet. Mine are growing inside a hoophouse, along with my peppers and basil. I have high hopes for all three this year. It's hard to beat produce that you grow yourself.
