Closing up for winter

The farm is green as green can be, the trees are bare, the blueberry bushes are brilliant orange/purple/brown, the GF continue to perambulate (generally) sedately around the perimeter of the orchard, the currawongs are raiding the apples left lying on the verandah table, and lots of very little robins and wrens are darting all over the place.

And I have nothing to do!  Well - not quite true - there are still potatoes to be harvested, and hundreds of trees and bushes to be pruned.  All that will be done when we return from our Aegean odyssey in three weeks.

In the meantime, I've made an apple cake - recipe courtesy of Edible Green Mountains (Vermont) as published in the newly released book edible - a celebration of local foods by Tracey Ryder and Carole Topalian.
