Miscellaneous news on a rainy New Zealand afternoon:
– the chickens that I have been diligently feeding every morning before breakfast have finally laid their first egg since I arrived here, yippee!
– I have been planting a forest of tiny trees that will hopefully be really tall in around 70 years’ time – that’s if they survive being attacked by a howling wind and torrential rainshowers about an hour after I planted them . . .
– plans for the next few days – more tree-planting, picking mandarins and macademia nuts, a bring-and-share eco-village dinner and a bit of baking.
