September in the garden - vegetables and fruit

 A lot of the garden is starting to look worse for wear - the cabbages have been nibbled at by snails and caterpillars..

the sugar snap peas have dried out

 although they're growing the borlotti beans have been nibbled away

Fortunately some plants are doing well - the painted lady runner beans are now flowering - and clambering into the apple tree 
 the greenhouse is full of tomatoes and cucumbers....

...and grapes

still some late strawberry flowers so hopefully more fruit to come

chillies are ripening

and small veg is ready to be moved out - leeks

and cabbages ready for Spring


  1. Fab stuff in your September garden. I neglected mine this year although I got pounds and pounds of gooseberries in June! the only thing that is really flourishing right now is the rosemary bush which is threatening to take the whole place over.
