I have tried unsuccessfully to load photos a couple of times and even trying to leave comments I have been getting a 'service unavailable' message each time, not sure if it is blogger or my service provider!I remembered to take the camera with me to the plot, these photos are now a few days old and the weather has become wet and much colder.
The strawberry plants were cleaned up a few weeks ago and all old foliage was cut back to allow the new growth some space, I also cut back any runners which were growing. I was surprised to see just how much new growth there was and even blossoms on some of the plants which now have new strawberries on them?!
Look what I found nestling in the foliage,take my word for it ,it was juicy and sweet!
Our big pumpkin rotted on one side and this is the next one which is growing nicely, I turned it over onto a leaf to see will it survive.
Our winter leeks, these are Musselburgh. I earthed up the plants slightly to extend the white stalk, I know some growers cover the stalk with plastic piping or cardboard for this purpose.
One of the autumn fruiting raspberry plants, this one has fruit on it every few days.I am not sure what is happening with the earlier raspberries as two of them have sent out suckers or new growth from the base and have begun producing more fruit even though they are all the earlier variety?!
Something strange with the Asparagus plants also, these tiny seed heads/berries began as tiny green pods and now have turned this vibrant red colour. They are only on one plant and I am not sure what they are?
Our tallest sunflower dwarfs our scarecrow which is taller than me and stands at about 5' 6". I must remember to take out the measuring tape to record it before the winds get to it first.
More tomatoes, all of the plants in the plastic greenhouse at home are now finished but the ones out at the plot are still producing. These have now been turned into more spaghetti sauce!
