Beautiful weather and no rain in sight

The last bit of rain has been some time ago and the weather forecast shows no rain for the next two weeks. Knowing the weather in and around Auckland, this may change but does not really look like it.

The water tank level is getting low so we have ordered new spring water for Monday next week. Guess it will arrive just in time before we may run dry with the extended family in the house and some friends staying too.

For our guests it means beautiful weather to enjoy. Have a look at all the activities one can do.

We just celebrated our daughter’s 10th birthday and came back from some laser tag games in Glenfield.

The weather has turned from somewhat wet and warm to rather wet and cold. The horses have been rugged up just like the goats. The rodent infestation has become noticeable, so we started putting up more traps on top of the traps and bait stations we already had.

The warm and humid weather produced lovely field mushrooms to be harvested. Earlier we harvested basil, limes and potatoes.

It’s the time of the year again. It’s very dry, the soggy paddocks have dried up and it’s the perfect time to dig out all the drains.

Drylands – no rain in sight

We have not seen much rain in more than 2 months now but rather hot, sunny weather with wind. Both dries out the land, particularly the hillsides facing the Kaipara where the wind blows from and which the hot afternoon sun hits.
