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

So many strawberries

I have already picked one large bowl of strawberries and there are many, many more ripening.

A whole lot of green going on

Everything in my front garden is huge this year, must be all the rain we have had.

I'm waiting for my food

We need a break, so.....

the garden will just have to keep on growing without any sweet talking from me.

Our weather has been about 10 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year, with a lot of rain, so I am not going to bother hooking up the irrigation to the timers.

We will be away for just four days, and as there is more rain in the forecast  I am not at all concerned about the garden drying out.

I hope the rabbit will do a good job of keeping the grass down *grin*

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.
