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.
