A warm sunny autumn day at the allotment

adams-pearman-applesToday is the Autumn equinox and another warm and sunny day.  Long may it continue. Each week another of the apple varieties ripens and today ‘Charles Ross‘, good for cooking and eating, was ready for picking. We had a bonfire to get rid of the old raspberry roots and canes, took out the sweet peas and did quite a bit of weeding.

The autumn raspberries are still cropping very well but there are few fruits on the bramble, the frost must have caught the flowers early in the season.

Jobs for next week
Prepare the new strawberry bed
Raise the netting on the winter brassicas

Start on the new raised beds

Weeding
