And on to the veggies and fruit....haven't been able to get to the plot for a few days, so not too much to report:
Still picking basil and ripening tomatoes (in a paper bag in the kitchen).
Some sweet and chilli peppers in the lean to at home
A courgette! I've left the plants in case they decide to squeeze a couple more out. The plants themselves look rather sickly but we're still getting warm days sometimes and not had any frosts yet so may as well leave them
I actually found some climbing beans too, in the back garden, nice and tender, amazing! Glad I've not had chance to tidy everything up yet, it keeps growing!
I was given two big bags of apples this week from different people. The first lot were a bit rough, so I processed them straight away into stewed fruit (I added some frozen fruit too - mainly raspberries - and a jar of old red currant jam as a sweetener).
And the other bag is in a lot better nick, so I'm keeping them til I'm ready to make elderberry jelly (I have the elderberries frozen). I'll give most of these away as Christmas presents.
Hope you all have fun hallowe'ens! Wooooh.
Linking in to harvest Monday at Daphne's dandelions.
