Autumn is over… and we are close to winter.

This autumn season has been unusual to say the least… warm enough for the fruit trees to flower a second time, record heat in fact, and 49 mm of rain… enough to be able to stop watering regularly.
I am picking peas, leafy greens, plenty of lettuce, potatoes, pumpkins, and the remains of summer treats (eggplant and capsicums) and the chickens are still laying.

I cut the pumpkins from their vines yesterday….
…. ten of them…. a motley lot,  but that is what you get when you plant the seeds from the pumpkins that you're eating.

The broad beans are growing, and the carrots look nearly ready to start picking….  a foody gaarden.
