Foggy morning on the farm

Bit foggy here on the farm this morning, a very pretty sight.IMG_0845IMG_0851

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks one way and another. I’ve been up to the north of the state for book signings in Launceston and Burnie, then home again for an especially busy spell. Just coming back down to some sort of sanity again now.

Truffles the kitten has not been perturbed by all the activity as you can see.

It’s taken several months, a really good barney or two and a very cold morning, but they seem to be at peace with it, at least for now. Rosie hates to be cold and so has stood her ground on this one – Tom got quite a shock as she is usually the gentlest of creatures.

In my absence, Robert has picked what seems to be a ton of green tomatoes, and the woodshed is lined with tomato bushes in late fruit, hanging upside down, slowly ripening. Looks like there’s a bit more chutney and relish to be made yet then.
