clearing up

decided to bring in the last pumpkin - it had trailed from the pea row into the raspberries and was very difficult to support. had thought this was smaller than the others but, comparing them in the kitchen, it isn't really - longer and less rounded, it might have made the biggest pumpkin if it had had time to grow.
the pumpkin was the only reason to have left the pea row in so long. it had already turned brown and dried out, so now that has been outed leaving a row of self-set flowers - foxgloves, feverfew and aquilegia mainly.
harvested some more baby corn. have had enough for several stir-fries but not quite enough to be worth freezing.
