September Garden

Harvest time has arrived. The tomatoes are ripening well and I have been blessed with no blight this year so they are able to ripen outdoors instead of having to be picked green and ripening inside.

There is also a berry harvest for the birds on the Cotoneaster -which attracts the Blackbirds and occasionally Redwings and Fieldfares. The Anemones will soon be developing fluffy seedheads which attract Gold finches.

   There are still some flowers blooming, I deadheaded the lupins and have been rewarded by a fresh flush of blooms.

Unfortunately I haven't been lucky with my Spinach beet which the slugs think was intended for them.
