Misters October.

When you buy a copy of this week's The Weekly Times you get a dog calendar as a free gift. The calendar is full of gorgeous photos of man's best friend.

When October 2011 comes around, you get to look at our Farmer Bren and Bingo for the whole month. Now that's something to look forward to.

Our calendar is already hanging in the kitchen open on October which is making our two little October babies just a bit excited thinking they might have birthdays all year through.

In other exciting news, we've started harvesting our garlic.

We've spent the past few days while the sun has been shining pulling up the glorious, juicy bulbs.

We've got many rows left to harvest, but I have to tell you that it feels great to stop worrying about the wet and the locusts and to focus on something positive for a while. Great!

After we pull up a row, we rack it all up to cure for a few weeks.

You can get your hands on the best, most delicious garlic in town, at the Slow Food Farmers' Market next Thursday the 23rd of December at The Abbotsford Convent from 3pm-8pm.

Garlic toast for dinner tonight I think.

See ya!

Love the calendar and I bet it will be October all year through now! Great to hear that you managed to get your garlic up and ready and it wasnt washed away!

Must get my copy today. About to harvest our onions before they get eaten. I'm not sure the locusts would find them terribly tasty anyway.

isn't that the most gorgeous photo! I love how the paw is over Bren's leg. Such a beautiful dog, always fascinated by the way they look after the birds!

hello :) we just discovered wild garlic in our front garden. It was an exciting find! We have just build 3 vegie beds and I am about to trowel through your Daylesford Organics blog posts for a bit of vegetable related inspiration.

Happy new year for 2 days away to you and your family, oh and Kate could you tell me if purple and red carrots taste better than orange ones typical to Australia? Perhaps i should try growing them....

Cheers,
Tracey
