The last blog of 2023. I’d like to start 2024 on a new page, so I’m taking a longer-than-usual break from the blog this summer.

Giving up on garlic

The first half of this year’s garlic is up, and the results are… not great.

Hi, I’m Kat,

I live in Te Hiku (Far North), New Zealand near the Bay of Islands with my partner Richard, our two dogs, three cats, six cows, 11 hens, and two roosters.

A few years ago we managed to purchase a 15 hectare lifestyle block complete with regenerating native forest and paddocks. This website is where I record our adventures, experiments, ideas, projects, and plans.

I also sell some of the things I grow. Check out the store to see what’s available!Mastodon
