It’s autumn I guess here now. We’ve had a couple of big storms that have battered us after the long 4 months hot and dry summer, but it’s pretty clear and sunny most days right now. Daytime temperatures down to the early 20’s mostly (low 70’s F), but this week hovering nicely around 26-29 (76-84 F).
Chores this week have included spraying the citrus trees for Mediterranean Fruit Fly, stacking winter logs, cleaning the coal boiler and the chimney, flushing out the solar panels and refilling with added antifreeze, changing dodgy valves on the central heating system and tending to the veggies.
Things are a changing outside as summer has now moved away, and we prepare for winter harvests. Some late summer fruit is still ripe for scoffing, like black figs, while pomegranates are just ready now, but the citrus fruits still have another month or so to go.
Anyway, I took the camera around for 10 minutes yesterday evening and thought I would share them with you guys. Hope you enjoy these few quick shots… shame I can’t add the fruit to the blog as well, but I guess even technology of the 21st century can’t help me with that one!
