It definitely feels like autumn around here. We´ve been lighting a fire in the stove in the evenings again. As great as it is that the house keeps cool over the summer, it´s super chilly in here once the temperatures drop.
Marlene, our grumpy old cat lady, likes the warmth of the stove as well.
Still making passata!
Green tomatoes (hopefully) ripening on the windowsill. These are from the bushes affected by the blight which thankfully hasn´t spread to the other bushes so far. Phew.
I am putting one bed after the other to sleep in the vegetable garden. Bittersweet. Still left are heaps of cabbage, carrots, a little chard, potatoes and the remaining tomatoes.
The David Austen roses I planted along the chicken fence are in full bloom again. They are so pretty and smell heavenly. These are so expensive that I only let myself buy one per season, but little by little we´ll have a nice collection!
The walled garden is enjoying the cooler temperatures and frequent rain showers. And I enjoy gardening again now that the mosquitoes are mostly gone! Have a happy week.
