Golden Days

Well after a dreary, dripping "summer" we are now enjoying the sun through September. All the plants are enjoying a growth spurt and things are ripening like they should be.
We are heading into the last month of the boxes for this season, all our onions are dried and most of them braided. carrots are looking good:

some of the tomatoes are getting big- here's a 1 pounder (400 grms if you're from brussels) called "sarah black" which has kind of black streaks in it's skin and a nice fruity taste.

Being a Veggie geek we had to go to the "giant and unusual veg show" at kehellend garden centre where i work sometimes. It was pretty amazing, some of the pumpkins were big enough to sit in,

giant cabbages, and 5 foot long leeks.

This weather is also perfect for putting up a tunnel so watch this space..
