Autumn Approaches

Autumn came knocking this morning.  There was a sharpness in the air and a mist across the fields which reminded us of October breaks in a Monmouth farmhouse when we were younger.

The greenhouse retains the fecund smells of summer, but with the dewy dampness of approaching autumn and while some veg, such as tomatoes are coming to the end of their season others have made a resurgence (spicy salad, Chard and Cavolo Nero).

 

 

About midlifegardener

A new house and a new garden. Having spent the past 5 years mainting my father's garden I am now taking on my own gardening project down the road in a new single store dwelling. The Old Man is still in the same place, but increasingly frail. The Best of Times and Worst of Times.

    Jamesie, I love every episode to bits, and comend you on everything a former Tauntonian would like to return to. Despite the allotment, we all need the sanity of a bigger garden!
    Keep up the good work,
    Pete Underdown

    • Lovely to hear from you again Pete. We count our blessings every morning as once again the skies are clear blue over Somerset as we look from our bedroom across the open fields to Corton Ridge. Best wishes to you and your allotment! James
