There is something intensely gratifying about growing food. It's not like other gardening. For me, it so much more satisfying. With the first frosts appearing, we are just coming to the end of a very late tomato season and the last harvest came in.

The patches were a little bare so t have been full of renewed energy and life. The vegetable gardens are looking good but smelling awful (thanks to composted moo poo and seaweed solution). We've been busy planting broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, garlic and a myriad of seeds including silverbeet, peas, beans, beetroot, parsnips and parsley.

While we were on holidays recently, we ate so very many fresh raspberries and crisp, just picked apples. That has inspired us and included in our plantings were two apple trees and ten raspberry canes - we are all eagerly anticipating the rewards
