Autumn round up

Been a busy Autumn on plot 45.

 Finally weighed our big pumpkins: 11 kg and 10.6 kg. When peeled, seeded and chopped weighed over 7 kg! 

A freezer full of pumpkin and spiced pumpkin soup was on the menu.

Pumpkin cake too :-)

Still got this beauty left.

We've cleared

Planted bulbs and seeds

Got our first brassicas in, spring cabbage and broccoli 

All protected from the rabbits. All it needs is some eyes and we have our own Cecil the Caterpillar 

We even found some more strawberries.

Our rows of garlic and onions.

We have 5 varieties of garlic purchased from the Garlic Farm in the Isle of Wight
and shallots, red onions and white onions.

Photo from last week, our early garlic and white onions starting to appear.

Even found some more strawberries!!

A beautiful frosty morning at the plot and Cecil is still standing!
