Sunny Sunday at the start of October

Well the sun is shining, and the Cox's Orange Pippin apples are ready. 

Monty Don advised last week on Gardeners World, to just gave each apple a little twist and if it comes away its ready, if not leave another few days and re-twist.

So we had apple & raspberry crumble with our dinner, lovely too. 
The Rainbow Chard makes a lovely splash of colour amongst all the green. 
You may not be able to see them, but these Cosmos are attracting the Bees, they love the flowers for the nectar, as well as all the other flowers we grow for the Bees.
I dug up some more Harlequin spuds today from this patch. 

We are planning to plant out the Onions here, that are rooting well at home in cell trays. 
I also dug up more Charlotte (on the left) and the Harlequin spuds are on the right, we will have them as chips, the long tubers will make perfect fries.
Here is the Garlic I started off in cell trays and kept under cover. We will plant them out soon in one of the cleared raised beds.
Today's Harvest:
& Lavender.
We also picked a couple of round Courgettes!
In the bag is lots of greens for our Chickens, they love fresh veg and is good for them and their eggs too.

So as I said, a sunny day you can see the lovely blue sky and it was warm too, the forecast is for a dry week to come, lets hope so.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
