The equinoxal (sp?) winds are battering Aotearoa New Zealand.
Here are my attempts to protect our newly planted fruit trees.
I barely was able to get the garlic fully mulched on the weekend before the gale started.
After I mulched the garlic I also mulched about 50 new fruit trees.
Be aware it is important not to place mulch against the sapling itself.
Having recently purchased this former horse property, we have 25 years of rotted pony poo to work with.
This gives you an idea of what we have. There are two more piles just as big.
We are boarding a horse now. This is what he produced in 2 weeks.
Despite the winds, it’s great to see signs of spring, like this fig cutting leafing out.
