I have grown Strawberries,Gooseberries,a few Raspberries,and some French Beans.The Pineberries have failed to produce any fruit at all.Maybe next year?
The Fruit Trees are growing strong limbs and new buds for next year.I'm hoping that next year we have Cherries,Pears,and Bramley Apples.
The Mallus Braeburn Tree in a pot has a dozen Apples growing nicely, a record crop for me!
In a rain soaked summer There have been successes and failures.That's the joy of a kitchen garden near to the house.

I'm back to work for four nights so there may be a delay before more posts.I have been to the allotment and seen what weeks of rain and warmth does.Masses of weeds and grasses as high as my knees.
I need to clear the weeds (again) and try to concentrate on harvesting what is growing.I still have my Leeks Neptune to plant at the plot.I am thinking of using black tarp to cover the paths between the raised beds.It has been a difficult year both for the garden and the allotment.

I'm hoping that the Butterfly Bush brings more Butterflies in.These are beautiful insects,like mystical garden spirits.You need to grow lots of nectar rich plants to tempt them in and hope it is a hot sunny day for them to spread their wings and fly around gardens.
