A brief update from the allotment plot, greenhouse & polytunnel now that Autumn is here.
Things are slowing down now even with the Indian Summer we’ve had for the last couple of weeks,.
In the greenhouse the tomatoes are ripening well now as are the chillies but the cucumbers have finished and the peppers are coming to an end.
Up at the plot the only things growing now are a few remaining lettuce cabbage leeks and turnips but the potatoes are still growing even this late on.
In the polytunnel I’ve planted a few more cabbage and tried a few french beans but mainly it’s just being used to dry all the garlic and shallots.
And finally, the marrow is still growing albeit very slowly and is quite a size but not sure it will be heavier than last years 86 pounder.
