Felt pretty good to see the trailer for the dump slowly filling up today! The kids helped for a while before getting distracted and wandering off to make bows & arrows and poke things with sticks...😅 We had lots of family support today to lug the junk up to the carport - thanks so much @cjkiwinz for helping out!! 🥰💪

Picked a jug of spring goodness before the weather packs in. Just waiting on the tulips to go now. Dutch Iris flowers all rotted in bud...not sure where I went wrong there. 🌼

Do you plan your gardening tasks ahead of time? 
I recently experienced a kind of overwhelm at all there is to do, and realised I’d stopped enjoying just being outside. What used to be my pantry/gym/temple had become something a little oppressing and I just couldn’t keep up.
Enter a new mindset.... turning my weekends into doing less, so I can get ahead faster.
What a shift!! I’ve got more satisfaction, the projects needing the most attention are getting it, and I have regained the sense of ‘slow gardening’ I used to have.
Want to give it a go yourself? My weekly email has three ideas that could be prompts for you, or just remind you to find a little time for what matters. I include the Biodynamic moon guide for Friday-Monday, and also an Auckland weather forecast.
My tasks this weekend: 1️⃣ start a new bed with a hugelkultr base, 2️⃣ relocate my rain water bins, and 3️⃣ build trellises and climbing frames for my beans, tomatoes and sweet peas.
🙏Happy gardening & composting - may it be a space of peace, gentle exercise and always abundant with food and flowers.

This lovely #regram is of Salou and was grown by @bulb_blastnz who has a very impressive collection of bulbs! We thought now might be a good time to post some tips on what to do with your daffodils have finisehd flowering – particularly if they didn’t look as good as you might have hoped.
1. Remove flower heads when finished
2. Don’t touch the leaves
3. Fertilise once flowering has finished
4. Spray with neem oil every few weeks
5. Keep watering until the leaves die back naturally
6. Daffodils didn’t produce many flowers this year and have been in the ground for four or more years? They might be overcrowded and need digging up and splitting in summer.
And here’s a little more detail on why we recommend doing the above.
Removing the flower heads stops seed development and allows the bulb to concentrate on growing as much as possible for next season. If you remove any of the bulb leaves before they have died back of their own accord it will result in smaller bulbs and poorer flowering the following season. Continuing to water the bulbd after flowering will keep the leaves green for longer. The longer you can keep the leaves green (end of November or later) the bigger the bulb will grow and the better it will flower next season. Fertiliser applied after flowering is perfect timing for boosting bulb growth. Avoid fertilisers that have high nitrogen levels and make sure it has good levels of potassium. If you have potato or rose fertiliser in the garden shed, these will also work well. When you fertilise your daffodils it’s also a good idea to spray some neem oil around the plants to deter narcissus fly from laying eggs at the leaf bases. If your daffodils haven’t produced many flowers this season they could have been infected with narcissus fly which lays eggs at the leaf base. The eggs hatch and the grubs burrow down into the bilbs where they munch up the centre of it – exactly where your bulb is developing the flower for next year! Another reason daffodils may not have produced many flowers is they have become too crowded. Daffodils can be left in the ground for up to four years before they start to become crowded.

My chicken coop has been looking quite bare lately,with the chickens having scratched up everything they liked (including my monstera plant!). And it just happened that the #kiwigardener magazine had an article about creating a forager garden for chickens! Building a garden inside a coop means you have to be able to keep the chickens out while the plants are growing and it gives the grass a chance to grow back too. I've planted some mint, thyme,rosemary, alyssum,flax, pittosporum, lavender and some native grasses so far; it's still looking very bare but most of these plants should grow and spread quite a lot. 
Not all the plants I've planted are for the chickens to eat but these plants will also attract insects and create a fun place for the chickens to explore.
