I’m loving autumn. And I always have. It’s still too dry to go in to winter with any feed for the sheep but the days have been cool and sunny and the nights cold enough to have the cosy wood fire on.We’ve been toasting marshmallows in the wood fire – every year we have to do that at least a few times.And we’ve been enjoying some self-sown pak choi, silverbeet and broccoli from the kitchen garden along with our home grown garlic.We still desperately need more rain. But it’s almost guaranteed to happen as we’ve got shearing booked for next week. That usually brings the rain…just when you need it to hold off for a little while.
