autumn/winter

7 Dec

Autumn was hot and long, very dry, we only got water running late in the month after a huge storm severely affected the vallee des gaves. Good to have it running again…..dug up the last of the potatoes/carrots, cut some cabbage …..the parsnips are germinating very late, so maybe i will have some by May ! I picked my last courgette in late october, i’m surprised this high, 1000m etres, that the frost didn’t come sooner. planted in some new fruit trees, i hope they do ok with the snow arriving in early december. I mulched them with the hay that was left over from the little wild meadow…..hopefully keep the very low temps away from their roots. some  of the new trees include an apple, gala and a pear, pyrus communis. I must make a design of the garden and take note what i have planted, labels get lost, as do names in the brain !!
