Our autumn garden is starting to get that jaded look.
In saying that, it is still doing a fine job of attracting monarch butterflies.
And it is still feeding us … we are munching on the sweetest corn and as I planted more dwarf and runner beans I’m picking those daily too. There are chillies and capsicum and a variety of ‘heaven only knows what they are’ … self seeded cucurbits.
These purple kings have seen better days, but they did feed us over summer.
… and the sunflowers are still trying to show their happy faces
Did I tell you that we have a rooster? His name is Jack, a good looking lavender Sussex who desperately needs to crow and ‘man up a bit’ the old chooks are giving him a rough time!
Having a bad hair day
Our pet sheep Poppy
Quinces in the afternoon sun
And the finished product … which tastes divine
You all know I love the beach ..
and taking home the seaweed
Dan is also a beach fan
and Eric just loves looking handsome
