What an amazing day it was, so beautiful, mellow sun rays eventually filtered through the lazy late summer leafs in the garden. I collected some more produce, some for adding to the deepfreeze, and some for using now and in the week to come. 184 more words

ALWAYS SOMETHING INTERESTING IN THE GARDEN

The Speckled Wood (Pararge Aegeria) Butterfly was once again flying around in the garden and was not on it’s own, I saw another two of the same species, they were interested in the half rotted Blackberries that were lying on the table outside. 309 more words

LATE SUMMER PRODUCE, COMPOSTING, AND MAKING JAM

Some of the late summer produce from the garden.  My first time growing tomatoes and aubergine.  I am making Ratatouille later on.

But my main job today was to get some well rotted compost out of the composter and spreading it on one of the beds that is ready for putting in Garlic and autumn greens.  263 more words

LATE SUMMER FLOWERING AND HARVESTING

Late summer flowers, Calendula of which I am now collecting the seeds for next growing season.

                  

Calendula seed head                                                                   And Borage still flowering profusely.

The runner bean harvest continues and many more beans are coming on so these vegetables will be served here at home for a while to come.
