Although lots of fruit and veggies are dying back this Autumn, there are some stunning colours on show in Matron's garden. I am torn between leaving these lovely crabapples
on the plant to cheer up the garden, or to pick them and make some jelly. That's a tough decision.
This Swiss Chard
will continue to provide colour right the way through Winter and into Spring next year. I have planted a Rainbow Lights
selection so I also have yellow, orange and white chard.
This is one of the flowers on my Jerusalem Artichokes
. Most of them are 12 feet up in the air on top of the tall stems, but here is one nearer the ground. I look forward to digging them up later, after a frost has sweetened them a bit more.
I am looking forward to enjoying this Lemon/Lime cross
on Christmas Day with my gin and tonic!
A small show of my greenhouse chilli Numex Twilight
. These little finger chillis are fiery hot and come in a rainbow of different colours which ripen to red.
Which one of us does not have a maze of spider webs all over the place at the moment, they are beautiful if you look closely.
We've had a bit of a warm spell in London over the past few weeks so these runner beans
that I am saving for seed have started to produce more beans! These will be left on the vine as long as possible to produce seeds for next year.
The last colour in this lovely Autumn display is........
White with black spots!
