Last bit of sunshine on the tomatoes I picked at the weekend.
I last picking of raspberries.
The cucumbers are still going …. despite the fact i haven’t watered the greenhouse for nearly two months!
I had some help getting the butternut squash harvested
The hugelkultur did the business with the squash. We had over 60 squash – and I planted them out late! They are now all curing in the polytunnel.
I also had help picking the apples
We got two wheelbarrow loads – and that doesn’t include all the windfall apples James has been collecting and feeding to the pigs for the past 3-4 months. Some will go for jelly, some for pie and some we will press into juice!
I also picked the last of our cider apples as the evening rushed in
For the past month my apple a day has been these lovely spartan (I think) eating apples
On Saturday I sorted out the shallots, onions and garlic which had been drying in the polytunnel.
I also picked about 5lbs of chillis and there are still more of the yellow ones ripening. I have big plans for the chillis – more on that later.
There is also a shift to our winter veggies – harvesting leeks and kale. Although I do really need to sort out my brassica beds this weekend.
And I must pick the tomatillos
