End of Season


The fruit garden, to the left of the fence, is looking promising.














So did the tomatoes until blight struck them down .


What a year this has been ... I did manage to get some crops in but I left a fair bit of land fallow. Blight struck the potatoes and tomatoes, club root hit the brassicas and virtually the whole site seemed to suffer with various fungal diseases due to the wet weather.




However there were some successes and I now have a great store of Pickles, preserves, jams and chutneys to see us throughout the winter months. There is also a good supply of soft fruit liqueures which should help add cheer if the winter is wet and cold.
