We have had a magnificent “Indian Summer” here in Whanganui. Our strawberries and tomatoes are still producing after nearly four months. Along with those, we are getting autumn crops like apples and pears.
But first, our new post box built of driftwood, three nails, and two screws.
We have been racing the birds to harvest a bumper crop of figs.
We ate the last of our peaches with fresh local raw milk.
We’ve had some nice broccoli and cauliflower.
Jerusalem artichoke is going for it everywhere.
I have been taking a plant propagation course. Here are some of my “assignments.”
We have been also doing lots of composting, with gifts from the sea…
…and gifts from community events.
And a few amazing gifts from the western horizon.
