Picked another armful of runner beans, they seem to be slowing down with the cooler nights we've had lately.

Yesterday, I dug up a carrot net bag full of my last 'first earlies' - Rocket, they have been brilliant! Last ones are very big, but still hardly any eelworm holes and no slug damage! Tried my second earlies 'Wilja', not as nice (I don't think) as the Rocket, but still great for roasting. I gathered 6 big rainbow chard leaves to have stir fried with some salmon steaks, and a handful of silverskin onions 'De Paris' which grow really well but are really strong! I'm thinking of pickling those, but used these few for a tomato salad with 'Tigrella' toms. I forgot to take a picture though - will remember on my next visit to the plot!  :D

Just home from Plot 13 - harvested some rainbow chard to go into a chicken broth for lunch, some sweetcorn (Before the rats get them all) some apples and a couple of pears to ripen on the windowsill.

Collected some sweetcorn from the plot and gave some to my daughter who was jealous.

Keep digging

Quick trip to Plot 13 to water seedlings, chard and celeriac and gather the remaining sweetcorn - only 6 left! The rats have stripped the rest. Socks over the cobs didnt work, but the 2ltr Milk bottles seem to have protected the cobs except one (Which may have fallen off by accident as I didnt secure them, just slipped them over the top of the cobs - so I plan to attach the milk bottle under each cob next year with a twist of wire through the bottle handle and around the cob stalk.

Harvested 3 courgettes and 2 marrows plus a few peas.
Courgettes and peas used for a curry one marrow for my daughter.

Harvested the rest of the squash, the trombonchino caused me much hilarity & my plot neighbour. 2 lovely aubergine, a variety of coloured peppers, lots of tomatoes!red & green because the trusses were snapped or the plants we’re giving up. A few cucumbers and what must be the last potatoes that were hiding under a sunflower that I removed

Harvested the final 2 Polar Bear squashes today plus a small Red Baron onion that had been hiding. I counted up that out of 12 winter squash plants, I have harvested 6 Polar Bears from 3 seeds, 8 Crown Prince from 4 seeds and 21 Red Kuri from 5 seeds. For my first year 'allotmenteering' I'm chuffed to bits!

Bit of a muddy plot visit sorting out the spreading of more hm compost and covering the area with weed membrane.

There was some compensation in a harvest of cabbage, leeks, turnips and chard  :)
