We lounged on the lawn with a coffee and listened to one of the school pipe bands for a bit. Then headed off to the Newtown markets for some fruit & veg shopping and lunch.
Mish works Sunday and Monday now, so I pottered around the yard on Sunday - pulled up the beans and some spuds and the evermore zucchini (not planting so many of those next time). Planted more beans and peas and garlic yum yum. Etc. It's a nice wee veg patch to potter in, and we're harvesting more than we've done in bigger patches.
Tonight there's a storm coming up from the South Island, but at the moment we only have a bit of wind and rain, and there goes a plane overhead, they're still landing. Lyall Bay was pretty foamy tonight, seas up onto the footpath and the Picton ferries are cancelled, but all is calm in Newlands so far.
