SPRING ISSUE #27 NOW ONLINE - CLICK THE PICTURE TO READ ON.
My motivation for gardening reached an all time zero this winter as the rain continued unabated and drowned most of my vegetables. After weeks of rain I decided to put the vegetable beds to sleep with lots of mulch and manure and now they are full of worms and almost ready for spring and warm weather that, hopefully, will be here very soon.
With the advent of spring and summer we see the return of many festivals and new events, starting with Toast Martinborough in November, when 10,000 visitors will flood the tiny village for a day of fine food and wine.
The Wharekauhau Wine and Food Society Market launches in Martinborough this spring and is expected to bring big benefits to the community. Held at Te Kairanga Wines, the market is beginning Sunday, 11 November and will be held on the first Sunday of each month, showcasing local food, wine, as well as local arts and crafts.
In this issue we feature many and varied interesting people and places that make our region so unique.
Looking out of my office window I can see blossom on the fruit trees which means spring is just around the corner.
I hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to seeing you in Summer.
