Remember these huge squash shaped vegetables hanging on the nets in our veggie garden? Well, we finally found out what they are, I sent a photo of them to Sean over at Livingseeds and he identified them as Zimbabwean Manhaga Pumpkins! We still have plenty ripening on the vines and I can’t wait to see how they taste.
The days are definitely becoming shorter here and the sun is rising later in the mornings, much to Richard’s dismay, this means less bike riding time for him before work. I love Autumn, the coolness of the weather, the falling leaves, how the garden slowly ‘goes to sleep’ for a few months although our garden is still green and bursting with life. I know that this will soon change…
We have been bringing in the wood from the wood pile, preparing for winter, Caiden moved quite a large amount of wood next to the fire places and Kye was there helping him by giving instructions about how he felt the wood should be packed.
I think I am going to be dyeing the wool for my Tea Leaves Cardi today, wish me luck!
Hope you have had a lovely start to your week.
