I have been featuring Our Garden in a regular monthly post since March 2010, now as the year draws to a close this will be my last post for this series until the Spring I think. I was actually surprised at how many photos I have taken this month, there are actually more to choose from than I expected, so I have just published a small selection here. As in previous months the full album can be viewed on Flickr, if you are interested in the album entitled Our Garden in November 2010
The most important harvests during the last couple of months have been the Apples Grapes, Winemaking 1, Winemaking 2. and of course the olives Che Disastro, Olive Oil all of which have been well documented in other posts, so not much in the way of productive gardening featured here today. We have a few Persimmon remaining on the tree, a few more Walnuts to fall and the Kiwi’s ready to harvest very soon, then that will be all our crops gathered in for the year.
The amount of rain we have had this past month has meant that the garden is rather soggy and damp to say the least which has also meant plenty of mushrooms. If you are interested in the weather statistics for Marta they can be found on Marta’s very own weather station website Marta Weather.
These were the only ones that were 100% safe to eat what we know as field/horse mushrooms ( Agaricus campestris ) and they were delicious.
Kiwi’s ready for harvesting.
Last few Persimmon hanging on the tree yesterday!
This is how the same Persimmon tree looked just a few weeks ago on November 6th.
