This post is a photo record and some notes for myself.
- The cucumbers have slowed down now, with the nights being colder I don’t think there’ll be many more that ripen.
- Courgette plants are still going strong.
- Tomatoes still haven’t ripened yet.
- Squash is still growing!
My first carrot has been dug up. Looks pretty perfect, hoping its tasty. The claret mangetout turn your plate bright purple! This is the last of the first row of beetroots, smaller than the others. There’s also one I forgot to thin out.
- Broccoli leaves are ginormous, I have snapped some off. Cabbage white caterpillars are coming and munching some.
- Squash is 99% leaves and only one tiny fruit I doubt will ripen so the one in the greenhouse has done better.
- Courgette outside has been more productive than the ones in pots in and outside the greenhouse.
- Carrots are ready now.
- Beetroot and mangetout are doing well and give pink stir fry. Some mangetout grew too big so we ate their peas
Pots and containers
I have cut back lupin and Columbine stalks.
The lettuces on the fence are working as good if not better than the greenhouse, so think next year in the summer they will just be on the fence.
The sparrows have stopped the pea bushes being very big but the peas are nice. Only ripened this week.
Hardly any jostaberries so we are just eating them with the blueberries and strawberries for breakfast.
