Autumn in the kitchen garden

September has been quite hot and the kitchen garden keeps happily producing. This year I have added many varieties of onions, and a few peppers… most actually turn out to be way too spicy for us, so they are mostly a photooportunity before being gifted out to some spicy trained palates 🙂   General view…

Following the happy experience with dry gardening, and thanks to the very inspiring movie “Demain” (see link here) I ended up after quite a bit of research, digesting and making mine the concepts of permaculture in order to apply them to our garden.
