Much cooler mornings now, a great opportunity to have a tidy up in the greenhouse. Picked the garden pearl as they were flopping all over the place and tied up and trimmed the others. Note new ball of string!
This outdoor cucumber is Marketer. I can’t keep up with supply, luckily the guinea pigs help out.
Still picking strawberries from the allotment.
Good haul of produce from a customer’s garden. Keeping the tomatoes under control this year has worked well.
The plums may be on their way out but apples are ripe now in the orchard.
Gardening in the drizzle but it makes for dewy photos. I planted these dahlias in a different place this year and they have been quite successful, for some reason the rabbits haven’t eaten them as much as in the main borders. And a beautiful unnamed rose.
Cleared a bit more pink geranium, a bit goes each year, and planted these rudbeckia to add a bit more autumn colour.
Went to the allotment to squeeze an hour in before tea, 15 minutes later the heavens opened but we managed to pick cucumbers, courgettes and strawberries and dig some more potatoes.
Allotment this afternoon. It rained all morning but when I turned over the soil there were still dry patches. Cut back a bit more lavender and planted my Higgledy Garden hardy annuals using hazel plant labels from Woodview Gardens.
Shifting a leafmold pile for an elderly customer and then raking the leaves up and starting all over again. Cyclamen and autumn crocus in the same garden.
Courgettes still flowering and the Muscat squashes harvested and ripening on the wall.
