    You will have to move from Chilli to Mint in the garden now!!
    As usual I'm watching from Qld. We will do a week or so on snow when it looks good in NZ but must save the bulk of our hols for Japow.

    Carrots, Broadbeans, and brassicas arew slowly growing away. The chilli are still in the garden, Jalapenos arent dead yet but the Habaneros took a beating and died last week :(

    It's encouraging for sure, but sea surface temperatures are similar to this time last year too...

    Similar, but appear to be not as bad as 2016.
