Autumn in the garden is as bountiful as the summer. We have an enormous amount of squash and I still haven’t harvested the vast amount of butternut that appear to be growing!
Lots of brassicas even if they are a bit ragged round the edges
Wheelbarrows of giant potatoes from the hugelkultur
Swiss chard and carrots
The ever-delicious borlotti beans
And runner beans
Still getting aubergines, peppers and chillis from the polytunnel.
And the last of the tomatoes and cucumbers from the greenhouses
The sweetcorn hasn’t been brilliant as I let the young plants linger in tiny, dry pots for too long, but we have a few tiny cobs
Something ate the corn on the hugelkultur though
We also have fruit – pears (more on those later), lovely cooking and eating apples
The last of the raspberries and bizarrely some strawberries!
