I'm planting winter vegies now, broccoli,beets, lettuce and nearly ready for the snow peas and we are now harvesting the last of the summer beans, tomatoes and cucumbers for our everyday lunchtime salads and making pasta sauces and fig jam etc on the wood stove for winter use.
The pantry of tasty preserves is well stocked and the olives are nearly ready to pick again. Walnuts, macadamias and bamboo shoot harvest is also just beginning.
We're raking mulch for compost and keeping the 25kms of forest firebreak trails open as we walk..
Dave who is 77, has been slashing tracks in steep gully heads in the new "adventure" of fighting the invasive Lantana weed which is trying to establish itself in our beautiful forest where we are keen to develop some new walking tracks.
