The lilies are still making brave attempts to produce blooms. One of them is in flower but it’s only half a flower (if you see what I mean) so not worth harvesting. Still, with the good weather lined up for the next week, perhaps our luck will be in for next weekend?


The chrysanthemums are as reliable as ever:


The beetroot continue to do well, and the Brussels sprouts are looking okay.

While there today, we tided up the autumn raspberries and did a quick hoe round. Here is the harvest of beetroot, a few autumn raspberries and the chrysanthemums:


And here is the vase at home:

Have a great Sunday, everyone.
