Land of the Woods – Autumn

davidniddrie_woodlandgarden_autumn-9631

Autumn in the Land of the Woods. Our garden is still delivering kale and some fresh herbs, but has mostly run its course for the season. Quite the transformation from June, July and into August — now the air is cool and damp, the spiders have packed up and moved on, the birds are working to get every last morsel of seed from the feeders and the soil soaks up the rains for next year. We learned many lessons with our little garden and next year we’re stepping up production and cultivating only ‘winners’. The big bad squirrels that stole many of our squash…well, we’ll have to find a way to interrupt their food chain. A few more rakes of the yard, some pinching, some pruning, ’til we plant again…

Vancouver, 2013.
