Autumn is here and with it comes some amazing colours but its just a shame the temperatures drop.
Trying to control nature is what we attempt and in some ways, we might be a bit successful in putting off the stark contrast of winter.
Isn’t it better to just embrace the reds and oranges?
Mildew is something that seems to ignore the rules. It happens not because of rain but because of dryness. The weakness of the ageing plants doesn’t help too.
The veggies have definitely slowed down in production. Some such as tomatoes and corn are a little worrying in how much more will grow before frosts come.
Then there’s the other side in parsnips and sprouts which are not even ready yet.
September looked initially like a soggy month but finished not too bad. Were harvesting well and hopefully another reasonable month is on the books.
