These are some of this year's last pumpkin haul (gathered in just before the frost) curing on the terrace. We've made gallons of soup today but we'll keep the best ones in storage for winter.

Siamese squash  (Fig-leaf gourd, Malabar gourd, black seed squash or Cidra) in the wheelbarrow in the photo on the left, can be stored for up to two years. The Queensland Blue on the right can be kept for about five months. The big pear shaped calabashes on the chairs can be cleaned out and used for lampshades, containers etc. We got about a dozen of these this year.



Here's one growing on a pergola.



We've eaten strawberries almost every day since July right up until a few days ago from the kitchen garden - but the frost has put an end to that.



We've also been doing a lot of reorganising and structural work. We've relined the pond at the back of the house with concrete (I've had enough of liners and the soil is very sandy here) and built a retaining wall. The pond is filled from the front roof of the house and a new grey water system we're doing. It will look nice when it's finished !

Winter storm shows up to say, you should start landscaping here;


ahh, not such a mess anymore.  Also hugeling on hill in background;


finally get around to imposing increasingly lush and tasty order.  Seed tossed salad bar;


the poor hillside that was first covered in english ivy and then sprayed with Roundup after the ivy was removed.  It was such sun-baked subsoil brick clay that even the grass didn't take for on it for few years.


ahh, much better. Hard to tell, but its almost the same frame as previous photo. The grey pot in bottom right and the azalea on its left didn't move.  


cluster lilly + itty bitty mystery sprouts in deep moss


fawn lilly + fava beans


newts show up to hump in my shallow ~5x7 pond-lined water lens paddy.  OMG so honored


garden spidies on purple brocollini


stairway to blackberries


blackberries started wild and some of the rhizomes have a 20 year head start on the other 20 or so fruits I planted in recent years.  Looking oh so fugly with all the dead growth in the dead of winter;


ahh, much better


here we go again
