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

Paper thin skins with gems inside. They still donā€™t tire (and weā€™re not complaining)

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)

We have some very pretty purple kale. But: the whitefly also seem to like it. Any winner methods that are low key and organic to get rid of them? Any companion planting maybe?

Mr Musclemanā€™s 2019 cold-frame re-build project is done!

Re-used wood, serendipitously acquired aluminium frames and some fresh plexiglass make us all set for growing winter greens.

More pops of autumn yellow. Iā€™ll admire every single one of them while they last.

In other words: we are not the type of gardeners who clear the garden and tidy it for winter. We admire the decay and leave the leaves for the critters to hide under.
