The end of summer

Now that we are mid way through September you really notice the dark mornings and the dark evenings not to mention the cool breeze and regular rain but when I see the sweetcorn ripening and the pumpkings swelling I remember that I love this time of year. Soon will be the time for hearty soups and stews and soon the whole plot will be dug over so I can ignore the weeds for a while yet.

The giant pumpkin plant has decided to fruit

One of the many small aubergines ripening on a tiny plant

The warm weather and rain has made late sowings possible, but here come the weeds

I agree can't wait for the pumpkins.

My squashes are almost reading for curing, but I'm not entirely sure what they are. Looking forward to finding out though!
