I have to hang my head in shame and admit I've neglected the garden (again!) this month. I think I've been out there once all month, whoopsy!
I even have some flowers still going!
And my sweetcorn, minipops, is growing little cobs. I planted it super late so I'm hoping to get a super late harvest before the frosts hit.
I'm not asking why the lettuce I planted in summer is only growing now, I'm just excited to be eating home grown lettuce in October! This is my front garden raised bed, I cleared the fridge out and found lots of tiny garlic cloves we hadn't eaten so I planted them. You can see them on the right of the raised bed, they've all grown so I'm hoping for bulbs in the spring!
I've had a few ripe tomatoes from the tiny tim variety I planted from seed. Only one san marzano tomato ripened, even though the plant had loads of tomatoes on it!
Look how beautifully red my blueberry bushes have gone.
My best garden thing this month is my raspberries. I think I said before that I was letting the branches flop over to hide the berries from birds. This has worked really well and the berries have been huge and delicious!
