Vegetables have been taking a backseat this week, while I deal with fruit. Gathering
apples, pears, raspberries and plums, collecting wild blackberries and
cutting back strawberries and raspberries, and winkling bindweed out of
currant and gooseberry plantations are very pleasant summer tasks.
be truthful, I have had enough of veg growing for a while and am happy
to gather the abundant crops of courgettes, French and runner beans,
peppers, sweetcorn and more modest crops of tomatoes and aubergines. There are a few summer cabbages and a little salad remaining as well.
