    Never had a problem with the mint, however I have heard some wild mint stories.
    I remember growing up in Matamata we would often get the blight on the tomatoes, but here not an issue, however they need protection until November. We are still having the odd frost !!!!!

    it was a north wester so it started real cold. and then it got warmer and warmer. it is still warm now which is very rare. it usually chills down overnight which is another reason we struggle to grow certain things to eat here.

    Pouring rain today. Would be very primal to go out in it, but other than feeding the chooks I plan to stay in the cave.

    Better get some primal food going, my 20% has been far too prominent lately.

    Might (might) also have another go at those pilates videos, better act as soon as family leave the house cos husband will be back after short meeting and then my opportunity to do it in privacy will be past.

    We have great tomatoes from the garden here - so lovely after spending a decade in Dunedin where we couldn't get anything to grow! My aunt lives in Auckland, above the treeline in the Waitakeres and she can't grow tomatoes there either, it just doesn't get warm enough.

    during my decade in auckland, i had buckets of tomatoes. unreal it is too cold above the waitaks. i may try some cherry tomatoes this year as we had such a warm summer last year. i even got a volunteer buttercup pumpkin on my compost heap ripen.
