potimarons and patipans

As the picture shows the squash have been picked and are awaiting many risottos, stews and curries.

The garden is slowing down now with some beds already empty with all the squash, courgettes and potatoes picked and stored. Still available are leeks, kale and borlotti beans, with fennel and cauliflowers available next month. Not sure if the fennel are frost hardy, so I may lose those if we get an early frost.

We also have a last flush of flowers with the asters being particularly good this year after we divided them from just two plants last year.

The garden is also full of dodgy looking mushrooms. I’m clueless on fungi identification so unless a local expert tells me they are edible, they are staying put!

    Beautiful photos, as ever and a very interesting post for the girl waiting in the wings for the garden! Quite irreverantly though what sprung to mind was one of my favourite quoted interactions ‘Sir you are drunk!’ ‘Madame you are ugly but in the morning I shall be sober’ – it was the asters that provoked me!
