Finally some respite from the rain. Temperatures though remain exceptionally mild for October. Thank you to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
First this week a Hawthorn shieldbug – not that well camouflaged against the reddening leaves.
We are still getting some autumn raspberries – though the wet weather of the last three days has made them pretty squishy. Maybe able to harvest a few more this weekend as weather dries up a bit.
Not such good crop from the apples this year, and those few that are there, are being attacked by birds. Picked six good ones from the Pixie apple though.
Some hazel nuts too.
There hasn’t been great germination of the winter lettuce.
But I am holding out for these brussels spouts to fill out for Christmas!
