a couple of trades for more smoked salmon

Time to put everything away for the winter - draining all the water hoses.
put the garden to rest
we gathered up many box loads of fall leaves to mulch the garden
couple of picture of the garden our daughter had.

cider will be ready for Xmas
cheers

Good trades!

It's certainly that "wrap it up" time of the year. It's finally cooling down here to normal winter temperatures and I juiced the last of the cider crop today - it's going to be too cold in the shed so it's inside the house to get it started.
