Well harvesting is well under way. I have now dug up the remaining potatoes, and that bed is ready now to plant garlic and onions for next year. The tomatoes have cropped heavily, and aside from a couple being eaten by bugs, they have done really well. The aubergines were a little disappointing. A couple were eaten by slugs, and the remaining 4 pots have not fruited at all. The peppers have fruited a whole, small, pepper. I am hoping the peppers will fare better next year. I will cover them in fleece soon, ready for the winter. The sprouts are… um…. sprouting! I picked some and made a lovely soup. There will be lots for Yule and Christmas. The onions and garlic are harvested and stored in a dark cupboard. I haven’t been impressed with the carrots, perhaps the soil was too lumpy or not deep enough. They tasted good but are small. I planted a few beetroot which were a revelation, and I made a couple of jars of picked beetroot. But I need to grow more!
