Weird, strange, flat? Yes it has been. The weather has definitely taken a turn this last week or so (and I am a farmer these days so it's totally ok for me to dicsuss the weather). We have been very blessed this Autumn really but the frosts are definitely here now. Which means that even my little flower patch in town is feeling the chill. I have gone from complete abundance to just scraping it through in one week.
The dahlia's have pretty much given up the ghost. This will pretty much be the last of them, methinks. On the upside, I dug one up the other day to check out whether they had produced any decent tubers ... great success, a big (ish, to my proud parent's eye) clump of tuberous roots.
And that kind of sums up the week, lots of feeling blah occasionally interrupted by momentous discoveries, then back to blah. Looking forward to the coming week though, that tractor is apparently arriving tomorrow and a start has been made on my fence. Wombat-kangaroo-cow free flower farm, here we come!
