Misty hill after a day of rain
A bucket a day of fejoias to pick up from under the trees
time to preserve with bottles and jars
Yes it’s a good time to harvest at last.
We are happy to have the garden under cover
from whatever eats the leaves and the plants
Elephant garlic and broad beans are in the ground
some lettuce in the hothouse abound.
So autumn brings work of pruning again
mulching and compost making to prepare for the spring
horse manure, cut leaves and mulch
piled up to rot and heat up.
So we prepare for winter witih pickles and jams
bottled fruit and other preserves using the dehydratator
When theirs sun about or the reburn in on
For gas needs to be carried over the slip when it runs out.
It’s been a time for visitors, friends from the past
coming to stay and share our life again
Plus the extras that live here helping us out
makes life interesting giving support for extra tasks.
A few thoughts on a wet indoors type of day with time to catch up with jam making, preserving and other internet tasks after a very full day preparing for the rain to come with drainage improved on the dam track and the garden planting done.
