... And nor can we complain about the vegetable harvest this year
We thought we had had the last of the cucumbers. Then The Under Gardener pulled another pumpkin plant and found two HUGE ones hiding behind the pumpkin leaves. Huge they are. It's no wonder the cucumber plant had stopped producing the salad (and therefore small!) cucumbers a few weeks ago. The green tomatoes in the bowl are supposed to be green. This year we have had green, yellow, orange, red and faintly black tomatoes.
The Under Gardener has started on next year's crops (excluding the cabbages and broccolis which were planted early in the summer for next spring). He's put five rows of garlic in on the allotment.
