Wednesday and Thursday mornings were sunny, although still very windy, so I spent both of them working on the plot. That included doing some digging as I was surprised to find that the ground wasn’t as claggy as I thought it would be.
You may remember that in this post back in July I said that I was going to sow some quick growing oriental crops. I did that and some of them, the broccoli and cabbage seedings, were just as quickly eaten by the pigeons! I’m not keen on stir-frys so a couple of plot neighbours took up my offer to help themselves to whatever was there once it had grown. On Thursday I harvested the remaining Radish China Rose
The small one in the right hand photo is marble sized! I might eat the couple of small ones but as for the rest… That just leaves a handful of Mustard Leaf Osaka Purple and Pak Choi Tatsoi Tah Tsai (?) in the ground.
Looking at the post I linked to above I see that it included the first pot marigolds. Well nearly five months later they’re still flowering!
It’s got noticably colder the past couple of days and there could well be a frost tomorrow night as the temperature is forecast to be 0C. If there is that will be the first proper frost here and surely heralds the end of the season!
