Apparently it’s the Autumn Equinox. Day is as long as the night – well, the evenings start earlier and our cucumber seems to arrive later. Cucumber time is around 9 pm, Mummy says, and it just seems later because the nights are starting earlier.
It all sounds very weird to me, but I do know that in winter the days are short and the nights are long, so I suppose that’s what it’s all about. Fred used to understand these things. He started to write some very educational blog posts about stuff like this, and wind, and other things, but he didn’t write them for very long.
He did write about Equal Day and Night Time, though. Click the title and you can read his wisdom. Fred was very clever. Victor told me so.
