Tidying up the vegetable garden is one of the things I have been doing today. It is at that stage where the summer vegetables are past their prime and they are taking up valuable growing space. There are still a few cherry tomato bushes that will stay for now but for the most part, the plants are looking just plain messy.
And to show that the weather is finally starting to change, the asparagus jungle is starting to yellow in readiness for its winter dieback. The days have been quite warm and dry but the nights are down into the single digits (Celsius that is). No fire for us yet but it won't be too long.
This is a new to me variety and I'm particularly keen to give it a try. Its name has escaped me right now but ti looks good and patience is the order of the day.
The nasturtiums are really lovely at the moment and as everything pretty seems to be dying off, they are coming to the fore. These ones always self seed and I think they are grand. They also make me think of my friend Janice because she gave me the original seeds a few years ago in a swap and they have been coming up every year since.
There are many plants and ornaments in the garden that bring thoughts of family and friends to mind. It makes it a little more special for me.
