I remember travelling across North America many years ago when a lady asked me, in a deep southern accent: "Is it really foggy in England?"
Well not all the time but I guess we have our fair share of it in the winter, but his time of year it's more misty mornings, hanging in the lower lying land. It does look beautiful.
|An alright view to wake up to! I never get tired of seeing it!|
The season is still hanging on in there, I'm sure we'll have a frost soon to finish things off, but until then everything keep growing.
As it gets damper and cooler things start to die off naturally anyway. My squash are now starting to get covered in powdery mildew, this looks almost like snow on the leaves up close. They've produced me a bumper harvest anyway and I can't wait until they die off so I can see how many there is!
|Powdery mildew I think|
|I love the colours of autumn and all the food that goes with it! These have just been collected around the edges of my patch!|
We had our last lot of runner beans last night, and it won't be long until I cut down the tomato plants and chuck them on the compost heap, the peppers are nearly all ripe and I'll pickle the last of them next week.
It's been an amazing year for growing in the UK, making up for many bad ones (2012 for one).
