A few weeks ago I was railing against the early arrival of Autumn. Now I have embraced it:
... and why not? At last a break from the constant battle against the weeds, the pests, the lack of water/sun/heat. Time to dig the first parsnip, brussel sprout ...jerusalem artechoke? Well, maybe soon.
...and the first seed catalogue clomped onto the doormat this week. Ah, the promise of perfect effortless results and the prospect of hours choosing which particular ones fit in with your plans. (Far too many from my experience.) Perhaps its time for my annual inventory of what's left over and what I've saved myself this year, before making out this year's order.
