May 16th 2018 A very interesting autumn so far. Much more rain than normal and the wet late summer has meant the ground is VERY wet. Some early lifted tubers have not produced as well this season due to the waterlogged nature of the soil. While we have had some nice warm days, we need the wind to dry things out a bit. We managed to hand dig a bed of kumara that we had planted and decided to again sow mustard and lupins. Just starting to germinate and a mob of pukeko have ciome through and not left one seed.... We have heard if you throw a pukeko in a stock pot with an old gumboot and cook them both on a slow heat for 3 hours, if you throw the pukeko away the boot is very tasty. We may have to try it.
