Seven From Last Sunday.

Opening View.

A view of the plot from the entrance. Made to look greener than it is by the mesh windbreaks. I have covered some of my raised beds with straw for the winter… read somewhere that it was a good idea.


The ground just above the plot showing signs of wear and tear from passing heavy machinery, working at a nearby cottage.


The compost bin doubles up as a storage unit for some tools.

Red Onion.

My overwintering red onions are popping up already.


Still a few fennel plants on the go. Didn’t get around to making candied fennel… maybe next year!


There’s plenty more beetroot to be picked! I have plans to try beetroot, apple and carrot juice, and beetroot-infused vodka.

Coffee Grounds.

Used coffee grounds to be added to the compost heap and raised beds. Supposedly repels slugs too, but it was way too wet to be effective this year.

Goodie, goodie, yum, yum.

Just over a week ago, it was still summer and the plot provided these goodies…

Black and white and green all over.

For the most part, the plot is coming along nicely. There’s a lot of lovely green growth going on. So, here are some black and whites to help put you in the picture.

Third strawberry of the season… and a whopper!

Some carrots that have made it this far.

Beetroot huddled together.

Shapely onion.

Rhubarb wrap.
