Last of summer

WITH the temperature set to plummets tomorrow and rain due to pour tonight (hurrah!), it's good to look at which vegies and edible plants have survived having less water and TLC than usual.

While the fruit trees needed heaps of water, the pumpkins, beans, potatoes and coriander all seemd to do great with a bit of neglect. The fig tree has gone gangbusters despite the ravens stealing the yummy fruit and the parrots have enjoyed a run on the apple trees but there's plenty to feed the household and a friend's goat - not to mention the chooks.

Now I'm looking forward to the tank filling up, wearing gumboots and enjoying those traditional autumn days with a chilly start, golden sunny noon and rainy evening.
