DOC's Endangered Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki presents... the cobble skink.
EXTENDED BODY:
DOC's Endangered Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki presents... the cobble skink - last known to only be found on the beach behind the Granity pub on the West Coast
Cobble skinks were only recently discovered (2015) as a distinct species. They live in the ‘cobbles’ (beach stones) on West Coast beaches, but due to a wide range of complex interations, and their very specific habitat requirements, were last known to only be found on the beach behind the Granity pub to the shoreline.
However, increasing storm surges, possible sea level rise, and the invasion of weeds (which glues the cobbles together, and creates a bank, rather than allowing storm surges to throw the stones back up on the beach), as well as predators likely picking off skinks from outside the habitat, reducing the ability of this species to be supplemented with numbers, has meant that by the time we checked again a couple of months ago, there were likely only 30-40 individuals left.
This (and the knowledge that there were some big storms on the horizon) led to an emergency evacuation situation involving a range of experts and rangers, not to mention the kind folk at Auckland Zoo who offered to house this entire species until the Department of Conservation could work out where to put them again.
The Cobble skink is known only from a short stretch of coast at Granity, north of Westport. When it was discovered in 2007 it was locally abundant, although already extremely restricted in distribution. When surveys were undertaken in January 2015 by 3 separate groups of herpetologists, it was apparent to all that the cobble skink population had declined significantly and rapidly, and that much habitat had been lost. The Herpetologists agreed these skinks seem to be easy to catch.
The Cobble skink was assessed in the NZ Threat Classification System in late 2015 as Nationally Critical on the basis that it occupied less than 1 ha of habitat. It had undergone a severe observed decline.
The cobble skink shows a strong specialization to the cobble stone/pohuehue habitat association.
The cobble/pohuehue habitat was probably once a vast system along much of this coastline, and remnants still exist from south of Jones Creek in the south to Ngakawau in the north
This entire stretch of coastline is eroding rapidly. A January 2016 Niwa report to the West Coast Regional Council states that the section of coast at Granity where the current population exists is retreating at a rate of 60-80cm per year, but the locals point out that one-off events like cyclones can take even bigger bites

Cobble skinks have large eyes, thought to be useful for burrowing between the cobbles. They are small, only six cm long.

EXTENDED BODY:
Gardening guru and writer, Lynda Hallinan talks about growing your own garlic.
Garlic is a staple ingredient in a lot of cooking - but at certain times of the year New Zealand grown garlic can get pretty pricey. Lynda says growing garlic is something everyone should try at least once because it is "one of those ones that does actually taste better homegrown."
Lynda's best tips for growing garlic at home:
You’re only as good as the seed that you started with.
If you don’t start with really good quality New Zealand garlic, you are going to have problems. And how you know if it is New Zealand garlic is that it will still have some roots at the base. So if you’re buying a whole bulb, that means I was grown here, because if it was imported, they have to trim all of those roots off at the border.
Growing garlic is not a skill, sometimes even the experienced gardeners have a bad crop.
It’s really important that you put some effort into planting your garlic properly because I can tell you, as someone who has done it for 20-odd years, garlic is one of those things that’s not a skill. You don’t get better at it every year. Some years you have a fantastic crop, and for example last year was a really bad year for growing garlic. Mine was a disaster, other organic growers that I know had a disaster… there was a lot of rust last year, which ruins the quality of it. Unfortunately garlic is not one of those things that you can’t say, ‘I had a good crop last year, so this year is going to be the same’. You have to put the same amount of effort in every year.
Winter is the best time of the year to plant garlic.
Garlic planting is a real ritual because you traditionally do it on the shortest day of the year, so it’s kind of a pagan thing to do.
It doesn’t matter if it’s not the shortest day, as long as it is before the end of august. After august there is not enough day-time for the bulbs to fatten up before they stop growing about October and harden up.
Planting the garlic seeds:
Break up the bulb. The reason why you break it into individual bulbs is because you only plant the fattest cloves from each bulb. Set that aside for a couple of weeks. What that does is it breaks the dormancy. While you’re waiting for the dormancy to break, you get on with preparing your soil.
Plant the little cloves a good hand span apart. The reason is because if you grow garlic really well, like if you’ve got lots of fertiliser and lots of water, it will actually grow to the size of a leek. A really good garlic plant should be about the same size.
Garlic loves ‘muck’.
The key things are to put in heaps and heaps of muck. ‘Garlic loves muck’ is the best advice I have ever been given about growing garlic. When I say ‘muck’, I mean anything kind of organic. So, well-rotted horse manure, fish fertiliser, seaweed, sheep pallets… anything like that, get it into the soil. Chuck in a little bit of general garden fertiliser as well because it really does take all of that and grow well with it. So get that in and let it settle for a little bit and then on the shortest day you can get it in the ground.
Garlic is an anti-social vegetable.
Garlic likes full sun. You can’t really put it in a shady corner, it doesn’t really like being put in pots. It’s quite an anti-social crop as well. We think about when you eat lots of garlic, no one wants to be around you, and it’s kind of the same in the garden. It doesn’t like weeds, it doesn’t like growing near anything else, it likes having a bed all to itself and if you grow it like that, it will be bigger. Every time.
Harvesting begins at the end of the year.
It’s traditional that you harvest it on the longest day of the year. But the real key things with garlic if you’ve never grown it before is you should only really feed it at the beginning of the season. When it’s only a small plant poking out of the ground, September and October are the big months to grow underneath the ground. That is when it is bulb-ing up. That is when it is fattening up under the soil. That is when you want to feed it. By the end of October it has done all of the growing it is going to do and then after that it is just hardening up and maturing off and the skin underneath the ground is firming up so that when you do dig it up, it’s not just a bunch of naked cloves.

[image:71026:half]
This week, a troubadour, in the true modern sense of the word. Over the past two decades he has toured and collaborated with artists as diverse as, Clannad, The Corrs, Michelle Shocked, Tommy Emmanuel, and Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads. He is one of those rare artists who can combine finger-style guitar work with a story telling lyric and skillfully deliver them in live performance, and he's done it all over the world.
Andrew was last on New Zealand Live eight years ago and we are happy to have him back, living in New Zealand again and playing his music for us.

BODY:
Kate Wendelgelst is a very patient woman. She'll be waiting years before she digs to see if the truffles she is expecting, grow. In the meantime, Kate's growing oyster, poplar and shitake mushrooms on her property just out of Dunedin.
EXTENDED BODY:

Kate Wendelgelst needs to be a very patient woman. She has to wait years before she digs to see if the truffles she has planted are growing.
"They say not to bother until at least 5 [years], and then other people I've talked to have been 10, 15 years down the track before they've actually had a successful dig."

In the meantime, Kate is growing oyster, poplar and shitake mushrooms on her property just out of Dunedin. She supplies them fresh to restaurants and shoppers at the Otago Farmers' Market when there's enough, and also dried.
Some of the mushrooms are grown in temperature-controlled environments that "technically should smell like the bush does. It should smell sweet... musty, but not bad."
Others, like birch boletes, grow outdoors and their production depends entirely on the weather. This year was far too hot and dry for the birch boletes to thrive.
Kate says she was contemplating growing flowers but fending off Otago's rabbits would have been a constant battle and despite all that can go wrong with the mushrooms, it's the challenge of growing them successfully that keeps her going.

Climbing the dairy ladder
BODY:
Albino Guien Dakila has gone from farm labouring to running his own dairy farming operation. Albino and his wife Anna moved to Southland from the Philippines seven years ago and now they are lower order sharemilkers near Invercargill. While Albino looks after the farm, Anna supports him as relief milker and takes care of the administrative side of the business.
EXTENDED BODY:
Nine years ago Albino Guien Dakila moved from the Philippines to work on a farm near Winton. Now he runs his own dairy farming operation.
It was hard yakka to start with as it was cold, Albino had limited English and he was very lonely.
"I applied for a job here in New Zealand because there was less opportunity in the Philippines. It was very hard to leave my family but I need to earn some money."

After two years Albino obtained his residency and this enabled his wife Anna and their children to join him. Anna became a calf rearer and, after lots of hard work, determination and studying, they became variable order sharemilkers in Tuatapere before stepping up to lower order sharemilking near Invercargill.
"It's a much better contract that the one we had before, with variable order (farming) farm management was dictated by the farm owner but here we decide who to hire depending on our budget."
Albino is primarily responsible for milking 580 cows on the 171 hectare property in Rimu. Anna supports him as relief milker and takes care of the administrative side of the business. They have also trained their eldest son Godwin to do the milking.
Their next goal is to move up to a 50/50 sharemilking position. They would like to build their own cow numbers to 350 but the low milk payout has put the brakes on those plans and so far they have 37 cows.
"I don't want to lose a dream but I hope the payout can lift again."

Green Fingers and Gondwanaland
BODY:
Peter Cooke and Anna Moore courted over a compost heap. More than 30 years later they are still making compost together. They live near Portobello on the Otago Peninsula and have a lush and spectacular garden, a bountiful vegetable patch, dozens of obliging fruit trees and a vocal rooster called Pavarotti.
EXTENDED BODY:
Anna Moore thinks the rabbits on her Otago Peninsula property watch for the bedroom light to be turned out before they venture out to wreak havoc.
Anna and her husband, Peter Cooke have spent 34 years creating an impressive organic garden on their 4 hectares at the base of Harbour Cone.
Early on they had to fence every tree they planted. The rabbits would ring bark them all. Peter also took up arms against them.
"I couldn't believe my vegetarian husband would buy a gun, but he did," Anna laughs.
Thousands of native, rare and other carefully selected trees have been planted in the garden and, in the past three decades, the couple has seen bird numbers swell.
Bell birds have always filled the valley with song. New Zealand's smallest native bird, the rifleman nests there too but it took 18 years before Anna and Peter heard a tui and 20 years for a wood pigeon to take up residence.
"We've got a big water... pot outside the kitchen and the other day we got up and there were five tui bathing in it. They jump into this deep water and just fluff their feathers and hop out again. It's absolutely fabulous," they say.
Peter, who is the local GP, has planted a Gondwana forest after tracking down descendants of plants that grew on Gondwana from South Africa, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
He also likes experimenting to see what typically 'heat loving' plants can grow at a latitude of 45 degrees south.
"He's the eternal optimist. I never thought we would see a macadamia in our life time fruiting here but there we are..." Anna says.
The garden also grows feijoas, tamarillos, sweetcorn, citrus, asparagus and figs.
"Because we're high up, frost drains away, sun all day, sheltered from the wind, it's the ideal little micro-climate," Peter says.
