I don't suppose it's been too bad a weekend for the end of October. After some morning rain on Saturday it brightened up in the afternoon. Sunday was bright for most of the day but chilly finishing with an average daily temperature of 8.0°C (46.4°F) the lowest this autumn.
We didn't manage a trip to the plot this weekend. However we are still managing to harvest a few salad leaves from our raised bed in the cold frame courtyard.
I have cheated a bit in the photograph as those Sungold tomatoes were picked last weekend from outside on the plot. I have been really impressed with our Sungold tomatoes grown outside this year. We picked our first outdoor ones on 11 August and they’ve provided us with a steady supply through to the end of October.
I checked through our apples and quinces stored in the summer house on Sunday afternoon. Luckily I only found one small Golden Delicious apple starting to turn mouldy. Our bowl of apples consists of Golden Delicious, Egremont Russet and Fiesta.
