First I began to pick some large succulent raspberries, I have had a very heavy crop this year and we are busily freezing the produce for later use, probably in the middle of winter. I have also been well rewarded with a heavy crop of superb cultivated blackberries, I have never had such an excellent crop of these tasty beauties before.
The courgette plants are still producing like mad and I have given a very large number away this year particularly at the bowls club. We still have quite a store for ourselves to use in the near future.
I cannot pick the runner beans fast enough and the wigwams are full of unpicked beans, I am giving away a lot of beans to people at the bowls club. My rhubarb is having a second burst of growth and Margaret is using a lot in some very tasty deserts. Unusually some of the leeks are almost ready to eat. This really is a very good growing year.
