September

September’s here again. Wheat has been harvested and the swallows are fattening up for their trip overseas to Africa. Nights are cooler and bring a heavy dew with some mist. Some leaves are starting to turn. Autumn is coming

The extreme summer heat has produced a bountiful harvest. Here’s a few of the treats we’ve enjoyed during late summer.

 

There’s a lot more to enjoy – here’s a few September treats:

 

Winter brassicas are in; string around them will hopefully deter the pigeons. Celeriac, parsnips, beetroot, kale, spinach and leeks will be ready for when the nights are longer – they’ll remind us of the heat and light of the outstanding summer of 2018.

    1. Yes it has been wonderful. Tonight we harvested 4 melons – too much to eat at once and they’re no good if you refrigerate them so Al made melon sorbet – delicious!
