All pictures of vegetables in the garden were taken on Tuesday 14 September. Although the nights are cooling down, the warm days are still keeping everything growing well. The beans have slowed up, but I am still picking more that I can eat each day.
The hazel nuts are all picked now (I think), and at this stage they weigh in at 6.5kg (14.4 lbs) . Quite impressive, I think, for one tree!!
An overgrown yellow courgette (squash) which will also double up as a pumpkin now it has reached this size!!
This is pretty much what the courgette looks like at the stage I normally pick them.
Yep, they are as hot as they look :-)
The green pepper here is as big as it looks - about 180mm in length (7 inches).
This squash, there are two of them one slightly smaller, is now ready for picking.
Today's picking of tomatoes. Plenty still to go!!
The topinambour, (Jerusalem artichoke) is just coming into flower. It seems a shame to cut these pretty daisies off, but the edible part of the plant is the root. Therefore, the green upper growth will come off, as I want the energy to go down, rather than up!! Never mind, they do open well in a vase, so I get to appreciate them.
I will update the flowers and fruit around the garden in my next post.
