Love is a Battlefield

Maybe Pat Benatar was half-right. A garden battlefield…

To Battle!

Burning small piles of leaves in the garden.

While we worked we kept joking that it looked like there was quite a battle in the garden today!

The dogs know all about the art of warfare.

After the smoke cleared…

emerged to seek revenge. AHHH!H!!!! Zombies!

Whew! Just asparagus.

    We are slinking around beautiful autumn days. Nice and chilly but the sun is shining and its lovely to eat hot food all over again. Just a hop-step-and-jump till we light Brunhilda and the solitude of winter settles down on Serendipity Farm. No snow but the rain will lend a steady patina of hibernation to the garden till spring twitches at the doona all over again and the cycle is up and running for another year. I can’t wait for the doona to be honest! :)

    Your about four weeks ahead of us, maybe not really that long but I think so, especially since we have a forecast for a foot of snow on Wednesday. Seeing your asparagus peeking through did my heart good!

      Probably a few more weeks until we are actually harvesting (though of course I did take a taste of one;)! But yes, it is exciting to be actually eating things from the garden now (mint and some little volunteer lettuces too!)
