Field Notes. Neither Ken nor I can remember a fall so warm. Ken just kept working outside. Many tasks that usually have to wait until spring are done! Ken got the compost out to the field and into the medium tunnel, for example.
He has been cleaning and clearing sheds, so he can take down the old garden shed , knock down some trees, and build a new and improved garden shed.
Unlike Ken I moved indoors and got bookkeeping caught up and seed inventory and orders done.
I used to do this in January, but many varieties of organic seeds are sold out by January. The new seeds are arriving and will get sorted so they will be ready to plant - starting in January with onions and celery.

I made a creamy dressing with feta cheese for a spinach tatsoi salad combo a few weeks back and this week I did a classic French (not sweet) dressing with the minced preserved lemon, minced garlic, lots of paprika, pepper and olive oil. It was nice on raw or cooked greens.
With cooler weather I am using the oven for roasts and baked and roasted vegetables. Delicious!
