The garden is entering winter mode now and has gone through some layout changes. We finally took down the green fence that separated the back yard into two parts. It has been rebuilt to create a small utility area in the back corner for composts and, eventually, a potting area.

We had a mixed yield of potatoes this year with the Red Rockets doing really well. I think some of our other varieties were planted too late and with poor seeds. Still, we have a decent amount for a few months. There are four decent sized pumpkins on the vine down the back which should make good soup. The raised beds have been cleaned up but we have left them with quite a diverse range of plants in each one. The seem to work better when a mix of things are growing.

Other than that it is a matter of letting things recover from the changes and getting some more winter veges in.
