End of the Summer

Last week saw the first frost of the autumn and with it the last crop of runner beans.

Today I planted some garlic.  The first time that I have managed to plant garlic in the autumn.  facing the veg patch and going from left to right, I have planted Illico, Jolimont ,  Purple Wight and Solent White.  I look forward to seeing how they get on.  Already the onions that I planted a few weeks ago seem to have sprouted so I hope to have an earlish crop of them next summer.  The cabbages and urple sproutings that I have planted seem to be doing better than I have ever managed, must be because they get so much more attention now they are in the back garden and not on the allotment.
