Lovely autumn weekend spent...

Spent a very pleasant and productive weekend...
On Saturday, hosted a potluck party called 'An Autumn day at Aji'...
This was the second time we hosted the event and as in last year, we invited a couple of nice folks in the neighborhood...
The blue skies, the cool temperature... wooh...
One of our guests brought hand-made soba... delicious...
As in last year, we roasted some chicken parts with the dutch oven...
Still have a lot to learn, as I over-cooked the chicken again...
Such a pleasure to chat with these folks...

Today, went to a jersey cow farm to collect cowdung for our potager...
Apparently, they use only grass to feed the cows, so the dung does not smell...
And it is free...
Immediately use some of it to prepare a vegetable bed for carrot seeds...

Also went to a stone-wholesaler to collect some wood to be used as boundaries for the vegetable beds...
The wood is used to hold the stones during transportation and once they are done, the wood is treated as 'rubbish'...

Tonight, the moon is so pretty... and the night is so bright and beautiful...
Aaah, heavenly...
