Fall is definitely here
The hihgest mountains had a dusting of snow this morning. The air is getting crisp and my favourite season is finally here! We have pulled out warmer clothes and I have gone through the children's knitwear from last year. Amazing how much mittens can felt during the winter. And with the crisp air and darker days I look forward to knit new mittens, socks, sweaters, scarves and hats in the months ahead.
The sun came out in the afternoon, so we spent some time in the vegetable garden. Looks like we only will have mini leeks this year ;) I'm letting them stay a while longer. Maybe they will grow a bit more.
Our raspberry bushes is filled with berries, but if we don't get any sun and a bit warmth soon, they will not get ripe :(
But we picked 1.5 liters of sugar peas :) The kids have managed to leave them alone in the past week, so there is quite a lot.
I planted garlic earlier this week, so hopefully the will survive winter and start to grow when spring arrives.
