autumn is here, and beautiful
i arrived under a rainbow this week
while the wet summer has been good for watering the outdoor crops, the peppers still need some sun to ripen
the beans are just about finishing now. i checked back and we started to harvest them on 20th july, so we've had 2 months of fresh beans every day ( and often twice a day )
and in three fun colours too
i would guess that we've easily picked 1.5 kg / week, maybe more
sainsbury's are selling fine green beans at £7.50 / kg
...that's the equivalent of £90 of beans !!! for free.
carrots and potatoes are good too, but my basket was looking dangerously full.
we have eaten very well this year
