I popped down to the allotment this morning to get wellies etc for working in the pond at home and it is definately a little more Autumnal down ther enow so I took a few pictures while |i was at it. Starting with the usual view from over the fence. Next season I have resolved to gain access to the shed roof for a different perspective. (If the Artichokes don't get in the way of the view!) I'm getting rid of the old plastic on the bed in the foreground as it is the woven variety and leaves fibres on the vegetables. They are surprisingly persistant on the rough skin of a courgette which has been left a little too long before picking. Posted by Picasa

Nice to see more entries,Mike.

We're still picking our courgettes although it's on the way out now.Amazing warm autumn we've had.They say that the coldest winter in 10yrs is on its way but I really hope they get this wrong....

I have to say that I love that "usual view" of your allotment!!

Hi Mum will see you soon - it's too wet to do anything at the moment really. The pond in the garden is slowly filling up under its own steam. I'll have to empty it again (probably) before I finish off the stepping stones.

KT: Thanks for your comment - your courgettes are doing really well mine were over weeks ago. They tend to get mildew when we have wet weather. The leaves of the squashes I planted direct in july are still fine though, so maybe I could sow some late ones next year and they would be ok for later on.

You might like to know that I had a post from The Allotment Lady (see links)to say that her Japanese daughter-in-law had found your blog from the link on my page and was delighted to find it in Japanese! It is a small world isn't it?

All the best, Mike
