I gathered the final pumpkins from the garden a few days ago, a little earlier than I’d have liked, but it was a question of getting them in before the rodents ate them! This lot should last me six months anyway as this variety – a type of Queensland Blue – is a good keeper. And it keeps my arm muscles strong – cutting into these hard skins is not for the faint-hearted! It’s a busy busy time in the garden, pulling out the last of the summer crops, and putting in the next ones – garlic, onions, brassicas so far, with more to go in soon, including peas peas and more peas 🙂
Nights are cooler so it’s collection time for firewood – I’d prefer to do it during the summer but the danger of snakes is too high for me then. Living the simple life is lovely, but golly there’s often not too many moments to savour it, especially at the change of seasons.
Taking a couple of days off though, for some R&R, and have vehicle maintenance done. See you later 🙂
