As the garden begins to slow down with the rapid onset of much colder weather, so do we. The cold marks the end of another epic Summer/Autumn season for us so we fit in one final hoorah before winter sets in.
We'd always planned to have a little break this Winter and designed the garden for exactly that - completely foregoing a Winter-harvest planting this year. We hadn't expected the cold to roll in quite so quickly however but with Summer's glory fast perishing and just a smaller harvest as planned until our Spring-harvest planting is ready in many months we've decided to wrap up the season early. Our veggie boxes will be finishing in two weeks (last delivery on the 2nd of May).Although we won't be delivering to Melbourne weekly for a while, we have - as always - plenty of exciting things happening and products to share - so stay posted!
Last weekend we had our last event on the farm for the season - our Autumn Harvest Dinner. All of the food was cooked by us from the produce on the farm, with exceptions of home-grown lamb and biodynamic grains traded from The Flower Exchange. We got to do all of our favourite things - harvest from the garden, pull out our favourite preserves, bake our long ferment sourdough bread, make yoghurt, cheese and milk, bake cake, cook on the fire and share it all with everyone.
We put our heart and soul in to what we do and below are some photos from the event to share our love for it with you. Enjoy and happy Autumn and we'll see you all at the van for two last catch-ups before a well deserved Winter hibernation for everyone!
