Not too much happening this time of the year in the garden.
The asparagus ferns were cut down and cleaned up. Here's hoping that there is some good eating in a few months time. This is about the fourth year they have been growing so production is expected.

Most of the garlic has also popped up as well.

I harvested the smaller of the pumpkins  as we needed a good variety veges for our roast. The vine had died right of. Actually I'm sure that I have mentioned in an earlier post how the vine for this one was cut accidently. Nevertheless it still took weeks for the vine to totally die down.

The first thing I noticed when it was finally cut open was the smell. It was a beautiful fresh smell that I have never before smelt.

It was great to get such a bright colour on a late autumn day. Once it was finally cooked it also tasted really good.
I believe there is pumpkin soup on the menu tomorrow night. Not the biggest fan of this soup but always have at least one bowl when prepared previously.
