Last of the garden

I took advantage of the warm weather today to do a final tidy of the garden. It always feels sad when the productive season ends, but we'd done well out of the small strip of garden that we dug earlier in the year: beans, leeks, blackcurrants, strawberries, potatoes, chard, lettuce and giant quantities of courgettes, along with grow-bag tomatoes and a solitary butternut squash.


Each gardening year is a learning process; this year, the tomatoes weren't as good as the previous year when I'd grown them in big tubs, but the lettuce was excellent and saved lots of money. I'm already looking forward to planning next year's planting.
