With frost, snow and winter just around the corner it was time to harvest the very last of this years wonderful organic garden season. Though it’s already chilly outside it was a pleasure to just put some warm clothes on, put lovely toddler in his new set of waterproof bib overall, hooded jacket, gloves and cap and head outside with a bowl, a knife and a rake. While raking the beautiful fallen leaves in our organic little roof garden, lovely toddler was having the ultimate fun roaming around exploring all corners of the garden.

After having been told not to pick green tomatoes all summer long, now lovely toddler (to his full delight) could pick everything within his reach, and with mommy’s help even more from further up. We had great fun and it also was a treat for our eyes and senses.

We also picked one last grape and a few of the last sweet raspberries. Cutting back the herb bushes will provide us with aromatic herbs, like Oregano, all winter long.
