The lush summer of 2021

We learn from the meteorologists that August 2021 has been unusually cloudy in southern England. I guess that, with high levels of rainfall earlier in the year, explains why it seems it’s never been as green and lush in the garden at the end of summer as it has this year.

Runner beans today on Lorraine’s allotment

There are still lots of runner beans to be harvested from Lorraine’s allotment on this first day of October.

October sunshine on the sweetcorn

The maize was planted later this summer but fortunately it has managed to produce edible cobs before the end of the season. Two cobs provided us with lunch today!
