The problem around here (well, it’s not really a PROBLEM, but it makes planning tricky…) is that folk turn up with STUFF.
You’ve been to the market in Nelson and bought a swag of peaches and then Christine drifts over with a basket of apricots, beans, potatoes and a plum.
Just been over to the lady with the honesty box stand on Westdale Road and bought a huge bunch of flowers for $5 (which she donates to the Starship Childrens’ Hospital) and Maria fronts up with and even BIGGER bunch and an admonishment not to buy any flowers.
We’ve got heaps of spinach.
And just wait a couple of weeks and we’ll be on your doorstep with piles of heritage organic tomatoes, grown in $2 a bag pony poo and Ewing’s chicken shit compost
