The garden in october

--1 Moist weather came to stay! Thankfully!

Besides everything being green around, one of the things that make us the happiest is that we can forget about the drip-system and plant things where we want without water worries :-)

We harvested fallen hazelnuts from our tree.

Our neighbour gave us lots of winter spinach from her garden to plant. We like this variety, frost-hardy and delicious. So this year we'll be saving seeds for next autumn.

Wee spread them all over the raised beds, making company to the newly planted different types of cabbage.

We harvested the last courgettes, which by this time were hard and ready to be stored. Some were really huge, long as an arm! Bell peppers and tomatoes are still thriving, but the rain is starting to rot them, so we guess it's a good-bye until next summer.

The raised beds are starting to look empty, but soon will be green again with the new plants 🌱

In a sunny day, we worked on our compost heap, adding a new compartment and replacing the walls. One year and a couple months of humanure! We also improved one of our flower beds, which is full of beautiful calendula, with a wood frame.

The chickens are enjoying the change of weather too, since now there's food for them growing everywhere and lots of worms! And they've been gifting us with eggs everyday :-)

Have a lovely autumn everyone! 🍂
