The end of autumn

Wet, wild & revolting. That’s been the weather the past couple of weeks, and it’s still been autumn … officially. But yesterday at least a break in the weather, time to lay pea straw over the largely dormant veggie garden … and to pull out the cauliflowers that never performed. Still have vague hopes for the leeks, however. And there are still carrots, and at least one more feed of silver beet. But winter starts tomorrow … again, officially. A fairly arbitrary distinction. Today, the end of autumn, we had sleet & even snow! Fear the garden is going to be very neglected for the next few months, and fearfully unproductive. But spring’ll come again, and there’ll be all the delights of fresh produce once again. Can’t wait!
