The garden is still going strong despite this cold wet weather and I am amazed at the strength and longevity of cosmos, dahlias and zinnias, they just keep giving.
My tomatoes are rather disappointing this year, such a tiny crop compared to last year it really wasn’t worth the effort. The tom above is Black Russian and very tasty but I only had about 5 fruits per bush.
I spotted this crazy looking zinnia the other day, no idea how it got into the mix but I like its madness.
This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago when I was deadheading daily, now I left the cosmos to go to seed.
A beautiful mess.
Roses didn’t have it easy, the heat destroyed the first flowers and then showers washed out the late ones.
A late sowing of beans, just an experiment, let’s see if I get a decent pod out of it.
Pumpkins are looking great but I am not sure if the squashes will manage to mature, I haven’t got any experience with those, can anyone advise?
I love these hawthorn berries, so autumnal and warm.
