Shortest day!

Nine hours of daylight, not a lot of time but enough to do a few tasks in the garden.
I planted some heritage purple broccoli we bought from a great organics store in Napier last weekend. They bring our broccoli plantings to 25, should keep us happy I'd say.

Lemons looking good
The parsnips, carrots and beetroot are all doing well, though the shadow line needs to retreat now and give the iceberg lettuces some sun. That should happen quite quickly now we have reached winter solstice.

A cute fantail with only one tail feather was flitting about this afternoon
