First frost of the season, this morning,
making us feel good about devoting some time to the garden at the weekend.
We cleared, filling up the compost heaps.
We dug, a little.
O took time in creating some sculptures,
a delight for the eyes in the season of bare earth.
And we brought in our last Harvest of the year.
Potatoes have been big and plentiful.
Courgettes, a great start but fizzed out quickly.
The girls are still laying, a couple a day, even though we are down to 3 chickens, loosing Linda in the Summer.
Tomatoes, have only managed to feed us in the, pick and eat way with not enough for our normal freezer stock of roasted tomato sauce, such a shame.
We grew as many plants, just a smaller crop.
Chillies, started in the greenhouse, then placed in a sunny spot in the garden.
A good turn out with pots in the freezer, ready for some fire in the cold, dark months.
And one pumpkin with many a baby.
Ground hungry, I think this will be our last year in giving room to these beauties.
And so the garden begins it rest.
