The Seasons Change

I haven't posted much for a while because not much has changed. It's been rainging on and off for weeks now. Our winter squash patch is a graveyard and slugs stalk the beds, daring anyone to mess with them. Here's a bucket of slugs i picked in about 5 minutes in a few beds:

Nevertheless we keep working away, saving what we can. Things like tomatoes are doing well despite the lack of sun. Our indoor beans are really prolific and when the rabbits aren't getting in we have some salad!!

You can feel autumn in the air these mornings, seems a lot earlier this year. With the change of season comes a change of activity - it's time to start storing for winter, saving seed and to begin planning for next year.
