I have eaten my way through a strawberry patch, 50 bunches of grapes, a row of mangetout, 2 courgette plants, spring onions, cucumbers and French beans. I have yet to finish the tomatoes both inside the greenhouse and out, 

the runner beans (I've kept up with eating them beautifully.),

the apples (only eaten one - not ready!), the plums (just found them - all 8 of them!),

the kohl rabi (one left) and the pepper (only the one!)

Most of the greenhouse tomatoes have been cut back or pulled out as the tomatoes were eaten and the string saved for next year. I 'get knotted' each year in order to save the planet a little.

Only a little of the garden left to cut back for the winter. Well fed and job well done.


PS Thank you DD for helping out with the eating of the tomatoes and cucumbers - couldn't have done it without you.



  1. We got one plum this year - and that was rotten inside. Ho hum. Everything else has been great though!

  2. I have been waiting for my pear tree to bear fruit for the past two years.....nothing.

    The plums look lovely.

    God bless.

  3. the best summing up of our growing seasons!


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
