I must admit that I’ve neglected the garden these last few weeks. I’ve been so caught up with my son and his start at Nursery School that everything else has passed me by. Now it’s Autumn in the garden.
Yesterday we finally gave up hope of our cherry tomatoes ever turning red in the garden 🙁
We’ve picked them, put them in a paper bag with a banana (thank you Pippa @ Red Rose Mummy) and put them in a cupboard – please turn red soon!! We are meant to be making a video of ‘grow it, pick it, eat it’ for the National Trust 50 Things to do before you’re 11 3/4 – not quite going to plan! We even have new flowers – very confusing.
Our sunflowers are pretty much all out now – Daddy P’s has started to wilt, mine is still ok and my son’s is really attracting the bees at the moment.
The garden is still full of little bursts of colour, but more on the foliage side of things now.
We have really well-established trees behind the fence at the bottom of the garden and over the weeks ahead we’ll watch as all the leaves start to fall. I have to admit that I get rather sad when that happens. I’m certainly a Spring person, by birth too! But on the upside, we’ll get to watch our grey squirrels do their acrobatics through the branches and get a clear view of all our resident birds – things could be worse.
On a final note – chances of this pumpkin being anywhere near ready for Halloween????
