A busy yet satisfying weekend for me.  I cleared out all the old dead summer vegetable plants from my vegetable garden, and picked the last of the tomatoes. The garden really needs a good rainfall now, before I dig in compost and horse manure.  Then I can plant my winter vegetables.
  • Slowly the passionfruit crop is being used up.  A lot of pulp has been frozen in 1/2 cup bags for use in winter.  I also made a Passionfruit and Coconut cake.
  • Vegetables ready to be roasted for Saturday's dinner - Creamy Chicken and Roast Vegetable Salad.
  • Hoheria flowers - one of New Zeealand's native trees - I know we are heading into Autumn when the flowers appear
  • This mornings sky as I opened the curtains
  • Sewing 2.5" squares for a project - the weekend after next, all going well I am going to Hamilton to have a sewing day with my Flickr friend Rachel.  We are planning to make the Sew Together Bag.
Looking forward to reading what you have all been cooking, baking, creating or reading this weekend.
