Summer on its way and so nice outside

It’s so beautiful outside. Spring soon will turn into summer and the weather during the day is already so awesome. Early sunrise, long days, still cool nights and cold wind but that will change soon.

You need to be careful not to get sunburned as the sun is strong but the wind cool so you do not feel the UV. The grass is growing, the flowers are blooming. And the first strawberries of the season harvested. Just so great to be outside.

Looking forward to the summer BBQ’s. Let’s bring on Christmas.

Winter Solstice & Matariki

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.

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.

Finding beauty on rainy days

Even on rainy days you can find a lot of beauty outside when you decide to battle the elements and get outside.

Muddy days

It’s been a few rather wet days. Some with intermittent sunshine but not enough to dry up the ground yet. The cats use the sunny breaks to go outside but other than that they seem to be in hibernation.
