We did however do some harvesting. Some more tomatoes, kuttiger carrots, golden and Detroit beetroot, purple top Milan turnip, some red beard spring onions and a decent white gem parsnip. I can see a root roast for dinner some time during this week. But there's more...
Some more green french climbing beans, finale fennel, Hispi and a greyhound cabbage and some lavender for drying. You will see that I also have some pears. These pears are not mine, they are my neighbours and had fallen on my side of the plot, windfall you see - so I took them. I don't know what variety they are, but they are very yellow, ripe with a red blush and bruise easy. I also took a walk over to plot 11 and harvested a handful of autumn raspberries and some scarlet emperor runner beans.
Here's moi harvesting some blauhilde, blue lake and neckar gold climbing beans under the watchful eye of jaunty scarecrow. Behind the climbing beans, you can see the towering Jerusalem artichokes. Something to look forward to in the winter months and during the hungry gap.
This is one of my dwarf sunflowers, not flowering much is it?! In fact they all look like this. I wonder if it's an autumn variety, I will have to double check to seed packet, as I have forgotten.
Ice Queen lettuce in a nice and neat row.
These golden sunrise, tigerella and gardeners delight tomatoes are still ripening. D has promised to make some more tomato soup tomorrow. His tomato soup batch lasted all week. The last bowlful was consumed today for lunch. I noted in the greenhouse that I had some curly kale and leeks still to plant out. I think I may take them home next week to plant in my garden plot.
Look who we have here - At the bottom of my plot path I have one of the lay-committee members shouting to get our attention. He grumbled a little, that there was noone about, today I can understand why - it's raining mate!
