Bumper Harvest

It was the coldest morning of the autumn on Sunday. However with plenty of sunshine the day warmed up and became a very pleasant late morning and afternoon. At last week made a trip to the plot to lift the last of the potatoes and pick some fresh vegetables. There’s also plenty of clearing up to do so there’s no chance of running out of jobs to get on with on the plot. As it was such a lovely afternoon we still managed time to take a break and a cup of coffee to enjoy the weather.

Having not visited for a week we managed a nice autumn harvest of fruit and vegetables. I managed to lift about a half of my remaining Sarpo Mira potatoes. These had more slug damage than the potatoes previously lifted which is probably due to them being left in the ground in the recent damp weather. The cold temperatures overnight hadn’t damaged our soft fruit and we were lucky enough to harvest some alpine strawberries and late raspberries.
