Lots of discovery and fun has been happening as we get things under way. Ideas are blossoming as fast as the gardens are growing- Spring is a good time to start a project.
All the beds are seeded, and many are sprouting
Tracy and I do our first survey of the MOP native tree section, its great to rediscover plants I haven’t visited for a few seasons. This will be the first year we ever harvest or focus our energy on this area of the garden. Many plants trigger stories for Tracy that she has heard from her elders, so she takes sample clippings of the ocean spray and Indian Plum.
We spend some time processing local new zealand flax and spin some fibre
And then we bind rocks to arbutus sticks with our spun fibre, so we have drop spindles made from the land for future spinning.
