31st October pics

The beautiful cosmos "Candy stripe" are still putting on a good show at the end of October. The hoverflies love them.

These squashes are all over now and have been rounded up and dumped in the new compost bin. Of which more later - in other words above so you probably already know all about it...

The Jerusalem artichokes are gravitating gracefully toward the greenhouse. I concocted my "Autumn/Winter Soup" yesterday - basically pumpkin, apple and Jerusalem artichokes with stock, milk salt and pepper - served with mature cheddar grated over it and home made crusty seeded bread. I madeit from the pumpkin (winter squash) which broke off early in the season and it was very tasty. Quantities were one 5lb squash, one cooking apple & three Jerusalem artichokes.

I left these beans "Rob Roy" from Robinsons to dry as Borlotti beans so they are now in the bathroom with the heater on.
