I like this moment in the season. It's still warm - 20C this morning - but the leaves have seriously started falling. It's getting to be time to hunker down..

It seems we like our mandarins. I bought a couple of bags last night and they went. Today mandarins were on the shopping list with the addition "x [infinity]".
Fresh fruit in season is a great idea. Between my not willing to pay "out of season" prices and the kids' keen sense of quality it's all we seem to do.

Winter is a cleansing time in the garden. In another few weeks all of those leaves will be on the ground. That's where labour in the garden has its greatest yield. Compost made, soils prepared, pruning done. I'm a lazy gardener.
