The crop has been destroyed. A lesson has surely been learnt.
On a lighter note the late season broccoli is doing well, I just need to tidy up the bed before it is strangled with weeds.
The borlotti beans, an Italian variety of bean is ready to be harvested which I intend to do today along with the last of the dwarf green beans.
The dwarf green beans have been a huge success with a great taste and plenty stored away in the freezer. Whilst the borlotti beans have been a little slower to come to fruition they are plentiful, so now its a matter of taste. I will reserve judgement and let you know. Broad beans were wonderful yet again and there is a large stock in the freezer, along with the peas which don't seem to last very long at all. I need to increase the planting.
The tomatoes are plentiful and we have had an abundance of them through the last month, I have also made several jars of chutney and put some in the freezer for sauces. The last plants in hanging baskets have plenty of fruit but the lack of sun has restricted the process, so they are still green.
Green tomato chutney perhaps???
Finally the complete hedgerow at the end of my garden is full of blackberries, so I intend to pick them, some for the freezer along with the apples already there will make some great Autumnal puddings and some for jam.
A taste of summer in the cooler months, what could be better?
As always, thank you for your wonderful comments on my last post and a warm welcome to new followers. I hope you enjoy my little adventures as I plod through life.
