The cooler Autumn weather marks the end of vintage for winemakers and the end of harvest season for our table grape growers and some fruit and vegetable growers.
You will see the grape vines being pruned ready for dormancy over the colder winter months.
Other growers are starting to plant peas, broad beans, herbs and other fruits and vegetables in preparation for a spring harvest.
March is also when pumpkins, mangoes and pomegranates ripen in the Swan Valley. The unique pomegranate fruit, sought after by chefs, is delicious fresh or made into syrup.
