I've some nice fat tomatoes to eat, some cherry's too. several fat tomatoes still on the vines in the greenhouse, and a few bunches of cherrys.. still very green. there may be another cucumber by next weekend if it would stay warm enough for them to grow a bit. beans are pulled out, peas might have a bit of life in them, the broccoli is recovering a bit from the caterpiller onslaught now that the cold has taken them away to hibernate. some onions , beetroot and leeks still to pick, but they are fine in the ground for just now. a nice harvest to have re-started with, hopefully get more in next year. some years in the past I did have more than could be used in the moment , so I would freeze some, nice to have something you've grown to eat when all the garden is empty.
the shed got a second coat of protective paint, its about 15 years old I think, so hopefully that'll keep it going for another few years, it needs a couple of patches covered to stop rain getting in when the wind blows. the greenhouse still needs to have something done with it.. but who knows what or when or how, no glaziers to cut glass to the right size, and plastic is expensive. well, maybe next year. I managed with what I had available and that was ok.

the sugarsnap pea has thrown out some more flowers so hopefully get a few more bites to eat in the next week or so, before the season is over altogether.
I didn't plant a big lot out in the garden, theres pickings for a
few more meals , some broccoli still to come and still picking a few
sugarsnap peas and broad beans. very surprisingly the courgette and
pumpkin never did anything, somewhat eaten by things, but they really
didn't grow. I have some idea in my head that the tenants may have used
weedkiller, though this would be two years ago, maybe its lurking in the
soil causing it to not be good for growing... a lot of things did a
kind of half dying then recovering, then took ages to put on growth so
something is not quite right. The weather has been up and down wildly in
temperature too, so that may have set things back and caused uneven
I deliberatley planted a little bit of each thing, not wanting to be overwhelmed and put myself off the responsibility of growing a lot of food. It was nice , early on, to be pottering in the greenhouse even though outside wasn't good weather. I did mean to sow several things sucesionally to keep the eating season going longer, but whenever I made plans it would be vile weather or I was too tired from work.
