Well, with a 16 month old, washing, cooking, shopping, it's not so easy to get around, but by and by, things get done, usually when toddler is asleep! Bulbs planted, lettuces, kohlrabi and cauliflowers ("All year around") growing in garage, and in bit tubs.
Got the beans dried, and the best of them chosen for seeds next year. (The rest will be cooked into a Hungarian bean and ham soup, hot and hearty, yum!) It was so much fun cleaning them, and didn't wait this time, as last year I had the few (that I fought with the slugs so hard for) eaten by weevils...
I could only save a few for seeds! But this year it was a joy - all those sizes, colours, patterns just like in my childhood!
I wish I had a greenhouse - the only window in the garage doesn't let much light in, but no space in a small garden, and no money - still, every available space is full of plants - and my little boy loves to go out into the garden, and demands the raspberries (still got some one Autumn Bliss!)
