Yes, I know – autumn is early this year but though we are saying goodbye to summer produce, the autumn goodies are coming along nicely. Here are our squashes (though we have utterly failed to get any courgettes, strangely…):

Our very first cabbages are doing well in spite of being nibbled all the time, and even look like cabbages, well gosh.

And I think the lettuces look really cute – so frilly!

We also have our first major crop of autumn raspberries, which this year include red ones as well as the yellow ones. The birds have ignored them so we are getting the whole crop which is great news.

Meanwhile the sunflowers just keep on going:

Here is this week’s harvest which includes one marrow and a crazy amount of French & runner beans:

  1. The raspberries look delicious. It’s great the birds ignored them this year!

    The giant marrow looks yummy, and the flowers are beautiful – as usual.

    A great little later summer harvest!
