Picked this week - 6th October 2013

autumn fruits - blackberries, grapes, raspberries and, amazingly, strawberries

 and, of course, apples - quite a lot, all of a good size but marked by bugs

lots and lots of cucumbers

some green peppers

and some red

 continuing to clear outdoor tomatoes as soon as they're big enough to pick

though indoor cherry tomatoes are still ripening

I've cleared most of the remaining cobs of corn this week and also collected some smaller ones to add to stir fries

 a solitary courgette

 out first squash of this year - not very large and not really the right shape for a butternut variety

french and borlotto beans to dry

runner beans to freeze

 ..and more..

and a few more late-cropping broad beans

spinach - self-set amongst the cabbage but cropping really well

and last but not least, a cabbage
