It has been stormy lately with wild winds !
Look at the waves on the waterfront ( not my home)

Yesterday was a balmy 12 degrees C and today is mild: got to love El Niño weather! In between storms and frosts we’ve been busy cooking to preserve some produce, making soup, baking and preparing for Christmas. I’ll share some recipes later. There really isn’t anything new in the garden, but there is growth!
Check out this Cauliflower, its ready to use, we’ve harvested several and there are more to come!
Kale with a nasty Cabbage Worm,…they seem to love this warm weather too 😦
Carrots & Walla Walla Onions
Kohlrabi & Parsley
Spinach, this is my latest experiment , there are 4 varieties here , I’m hoping one will grow better at this time of year, so far they all look terrible, I’m going to try covering them and put out more slug bait…
This isn’t the most attractive time of year for veggie beds, luckily there are other nice features in the garden.
Pyracantha loaded with berries and the Calla Lilies in front, which never look like this at this time of year, may bloom…
There are always a few cheerful Pansies
and the Pieris add some color..
Seed catalogues are arriving in the mail , I love getting them, time to start planning what to plant next month 🙂
