After a hefty storm last night, today couldn’t be more glorious. Full sunshine turning the leaves on the trees to gold and a sparkling blue sky providing the backdrop to what has been a balmy Autumn day.
There is something about the plot after such heavy rain, it’s as if it has been scrubbed clean ready for a new beginning, especially since we cleared some of the beds last week in preparation for the sowing of hardy annuals, late I know and the planting of garlic in a couple of weeks time.
We are still harvesting new potatoes, leeks, herbs, flowers and of course the comedy carrots with the promise of butternut squash and if we are very lucky a late crop of peas to come.
Even the strawberries are having a last hurrah.
