Autumn 2012

Still life in those fresh vegetables

This is my favourite time of year. The weather is still good but not too hot and we get to eat all the vegetables that we’ve planted throughout the year. I’ve been meaning to write a list of things that we are/have been self-sufficient in and no longer have/had to buy so here goes:

lettuce, onions, leeks, garlic, potatoes, aubergines, courgettes, marrows, pumpkins, popcorn, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, red peppers, green cabbage, white cabbage, broccoli, kale, Chinese leaves, radishes, fennel, beetroot, strawberries, figs, apples, quinces, walnuts, almonds, olives (and olive oil), watercress and herbs such as mint, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, sage, parsley, thyme

Projects for next year include bees so that we can get our own honey.
