The little bee that stung me put a stop to my gardening plans - I'm usually so mindful when I garden but I wasn't and I got stung. There goes me for the day as it can for people who are are allergic to bees.
So I got nothing much done in the garden no leaves picked up
No new seedlings planted and it's perfect time to plant by the moon
I did get to sit and watch the hawks have a feed.
Duck shooting season has begun in New Zealand which means we legally can shoot em up these pesky pukeko's which eat my vegetable garden.
The law states 10 pukeko's per day can be bagged from 3rd May 24th August.
I say bring it on! - The war of the pukekos have begun.
I often wonder if folks who are vegetarian or vegan ever actually try and grow their own food?
As most crops at sometime do require protection from pests - and yes pukekos are huge pests!
. It's not a nice part of growing ones own food
But we believe in recylcing and the hawks appreciate having a warm tummy.
I wonder how many other mothers on Mothers day say all I want for Mother's day is the jolly pesky pukeo's shot that eat my vegetable garden.
