September has been warm and the vegetables are still going strong. I'm glad I kept sowing seed, even late in the season, as I've ended up with a good few items for late harvesting.
Left: Lettuces, courgette, parsley etc are growing happily. The pak choi keeps bolting; I've tried to grow it on a number of occasions and haven't had success so this might be going on my black list of 'don't bother to grow'.
Other veg growing include kale, swede, beetroot, chard, leek and salad crops.
One of the problems this month with courgette has been mildew on the leaves. I've ended cutting most of the leaves off.

|Above: This photo was taken about 10 days ago; the cherry sized tomatoes are now turning red. I'm not a huge fan of tomatoes so most go into cooking / sauces.|
|Above: This time of year is great for taking woodland walks and picking blackberries - free and tasty!|
|Above: Dwarf Beans Purple Queen were sown in late June and are producing well. Better late than never!|
Lots to keep me busy! Hope you have a great week in the garden!
