|halloween in the southern hemisphere! At the RIGHT time of year!|
We have made 2 batches of wine this year - cherry plum (from the roadside trees) and apple and blackberry. We finally got to taste our blackberry wine that we made last year and it was a sucess!
I have been doing lots of work in the garden pulling out the summer crops and preparing the soil for the winter crops and new perrenials like asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. I'm also planning on planting a good number of fruit trees this winter so there is plenty of preparation to do before the fruit trees become available in July (mostly fencing to keep out our free range goats!).
|some action on the house too!|
On a wanna be self-sufficient farm there is no 'quiet' time it seems, as there is always plenty to do (hence there has been very little activity on the blog!)
