October calendar


looking south

Its been a glorious autumn here, with dry, settled weather for most of the month. The garden is quite productive now with leeks, cauliflower, kale, fennel, beetroot, swede and chard all available. We are also picking the last of the “Fallgold” and “Heritage” autumn raspberries. Looking towards next year we have planted a new pear tree – “Louise Bonne d’Avranches” –   to replace a comice that failed and five red currant bushes – “London Market”.

    Your produce looks worth all the hard work you must have put in. Now is the time to enjoy it. We are still picking the occasional red raspberry but not our sole Fallgold, although Fallgold is my preferred raspberry, I find it fail-safe sweet. Amelia
