Definitely a ‘don’t venture outside without a rain proof outfit’ type of day. Wet, muddy, cold. Brrrr!

Holding on to the last bits of color! The communal shed at the allotment offers us that little bit of pink we need on these bleak days.

Another apple that should have been applebutter by now. Oh well, the birds and bugs won’t mind.

And the award for the funkiest veg goes to…..!
A latergram from a visit to the wonderful store of #vreekenszaden, where by sheer force of will I did not but a single thing. (Something I regret now, because they had so many interesting seeds)

Our gloves were actually frozen. So we left them to thaw in the sun. Beats having frosty tips.

It’s a good thing that we harvested all our pumpkins and sweet potatoes. They would not survive the frosty nights.

Nature’s magnificent. On the one hand, I am in awe of anything spore & fern related. On the other hand, the sight of it triggers my trypophobia like nobody’s business. So why is nature magnificent? Because I can be nauseous and still admire beauty at the same time.

This year’s sweet potato harvest. Not as much as last year, when we had a bumper crop. It was a first for the ‘new’ cold frame, but we consider it a real success.

Green manure at work, doing wonderful things for the soil. This part of the plot was quite neglected when we took over this January. Our three step plan to improve the soil was a) remove all the weeds b) plant loads of potatoes and harvest and feast on said potatoes d) green manure to get some needed nutrients back into the earth. Come early spring we’ll see if the rye did what it had to do.

The other rabarbie brought me a fresh supply of empty glass jars (perfect for applebutter!). I’m down one, because I saw an opportunity to stock up on some fennel seeds. I’m sure she doesn’t mind.
