8 August, Apples, Beans, This Week In The Garden

The Second Week In August

What a change in the weather, it is much cooler and quite autumnal.   We’ve had  the tail end of the storm ‘Bertha’ and the winds have been really high, but thankfully there haven’t been too many casualties, only a corn, but the cob was big enough to eat.  The windfalls are coming thick and fast, I thought they were early, but looking back to last year, they were falling at this time too.  Now to decide what to do with them to keep them….I might try making some apple leather, freeze some, apple cider vinegar and chutney.

The Second Week In August

The weather has changed this week, it’s cooler and almost autumnal.  The garden now looks like a market place, full of ripe vegetables ready to be eaten. Lots of golden runner beans, courgettes, lettuce and tomatoes ready. I have planted more lettuce for a late crop along with Christmas Cabbage King, a variety that will be ready for Christmas. Hopefully, the Cabbage Whites will leave this lot alone! Learn more
