Really went out to do a bit of weeding but got a little distracted. This is the final pick of the squashes I reckon in total I’ve got about 45 usable squashes to see us through the winter.
I am hopeless at thinning out as I want to give all the plants a chance – that is so silly I know. In an effort to get over this I ruthlessly thinned out three rows of turnips and four rows of swede – now the remainder had better repay me with plump roots. I didn’t thin out these carrots so there are lots of teeny weeny ones. Plenty more growing in the veggie plot which I will thin out.
Last of these long mild chillies I should think as there are no more flowers appearing and we can’t be too far off a frost. These have performed well for me this year. I think they are called Doux Les Landes.
Finally, picked a few beetroot, more calendula flower heads for balm and some over blown calabrese that will make its way into a soup pot.
