I love this time of year, not quite the end of Summer or the beginning of Autumn. All sorts of plants are flowering and fruiting.
I have a small town garden, but big countryside garden ideas.
I am thrilled with what the garden has produced this year, although I am now sick of runner beans.
The great thing about gardening is that it is so forgiving, if it does not workout this year
there is always next year to have another go.
As usual this time of year I am planning what to plant for next year.
Winter salad has been sown and is sprouting already and I am looking out for garlic to plant soon.
This is the first year I have successfully grown tomatoes.
As I only have 2 artichokes I think I will leave these to flower and just eat the Jerusalem artichokes from another part of the garden.
And this year I will be taking these into the studio to keep them safe from the frost.

I envy you those artichokes. We planted some and they came to nothing but your lovely walled garden doesn't have rabbits does it....lovely photos, hope work is going well? Lesley x

Are you curious about me? said...

These are wonderful pictures of your garden.

I still find it amazing that from a small seed such wonderful things grow in such a short space of time, even if we are sick of french beans and courgettes. By the way I have a great recipe for a courgette pickle... It might translate to beans if your interested.
