Harvest: Red Yellow and Green

Well it is truly autumn now, the weather has started to turn cold. 

Out come the big coats and comfy jumpers.

The garden harvest is beginning to slow down. 

We still have tomatoes from the greenhouse and some chillies (not shown). 
 I Our neighbour gave us some good looking red apples. 
Raspberries from the garden.

We have not had a prolific harvest of courgettes this year. I am usually drowning in them, but not this time.  You will notice that there are some smaller courgettes next to the larger, healthier and edible ones, the smaller ones were almost hard as a rock, not sure why?!
The beans are all over the place, many of them have just too gone that they are inedible and stringy, these were the best. 
And finally, as mentioned last week I collected some nasturtium seeds to make poor man's capers

I am sharing my homegrown fruit and vegetables with Dave at Happy Acres who hosts Harvest Monday every week.

  7. Such bright garden pretties! We started to pull our garden for the end of season as the weather is shifting here, too. Our garden wasn't the best this year, but it wasn't the worst either. We had some especially wacky weather leading to wacky bug swarms. Always something to keep one on their toes!! I'm not a huge capers fan, but you're SO clever with your nasturtiums!

    1. Thank you so much. I need to start tidying in the garden, but its gushing with heavy rain that it will be neglected this w/e. I would say my garden was the same as yours, not brill and not too bad too.

  8. am sure you are enjoying what is left of the harvest once it seems like it is getting to the end of the season. I bought my first asparagus of the season today and am feeling happy about spring produce.

    1. Ah asparagus, my husband adores.
      Feels more wintery here than autumnal, rain gushing but its still kinda warm though, so no pull-overs yet.
