Jolly Pukeko

Well I'd never of thought a pukeko would want to get into the hops.

The land is in need of rain everything is drying off. Bruno the male kiwifruit vines leaves have all of a sudden browned and crinkled we are pouring on the water. We are new to kiwfruit growing so learning as we go re kiwifruit.

The hops are ready I had a little taste yesterday - once they are bitter its time to get cracking and harvest

Dried hops will once again go in sleep pillows and this year we are making it a priority to brew our own home brew

Linking up to Mosaic Monday


  1. Hi Leanne,

    Well, I'm not at all surprised why your indigo breasted pukeko would want to wander into the hops; they're so very beautiful and bursting with promise of sweetness!

    Thanks for the lovely photos! Have a wonderful week!


  2. How could your jolly pukeko resist? You have the welcoming bird table out, and fruit and beer on offer!

  3. Lovely mosaic. Such a colourful bird, the pukeko. Have a wonderful week.

  4. Love the cute Pukeko, I had to look up what kind of bird it was. It looks a lot like our Swamphens. How cool to brew your own beer. Great post, thanks for sharing. Have a happy week!

  5. Ooooo, I love the scent of hops! Makes me think of Summer. :) Kit

  6. I think this is the first time I've seen hops growing up close. My hubby likes to brew his own beer.

  7. That Pukeko knows a good thing or two!! Super hops, those plants have grown so well this summer. Cheers, Jean,
