The garden looks a bit untidy at this time of year. Summer vegetables have finished and have started to die back leaving only the winter crops like the Broccoli Romanesco in the picture that are just starting to fruit. One trial crop Cucamelon produces small grape sized fruit that look like a water melon, but taste like a cucumber. We do have a few Beetroot still looking healthy despite the recent dry weather. Unfortunately most of the Parsnip that we grew have been eaten by mice, but they haven’t touched any of the Swede so we will have something to pick for our winter soups.
