autumn, harvesting the yield, produce

Here we are

…….in this day, at this moment. A break in between the seemingly never ending rain, enjoying cooler autumn days, pockets of sunshine, garden observations.  Cucumbers have finished, zucchini not enjoying the cooler weather, kohlrabi plumping up nicely, rocket seedlings happy.

Thankful for lessons learnt (not much enjoys a really hot day!), opportunities arising and being brave to try new techniques.

We covered another hugelkultur be (basically an oversized, slightly rawer, slower version of a no dig bed) so it can mature and be ready for cucurbit city next summer. Lovely to share some of the last of summers bounty with friends volunteering, harvesting long awaited salad mix (after the learnings of summer – not planting enough, too hot, not enough attention….)

Flowers through the season, adding a colour happy colour to the salad mix after being appreciated for their service in the garden. Enjoying and being thankful for the diversity of our garden offerings to share with locals and trade for what we value.
