Bailout Weekend

Will they or wont they? Do I care? How many of these speculators can grow a row of cabbages? Is Sarah Palin a witch?

I think we should be told.


I'm picking these now; there's three trees - a cooker, an eater and a russet - although I don't know the names of the varieties.


As an experiment I've sown half a row of Nantes Frubund today, hopefully they'll get through the winter and be off to a flying start next spring, which should give me an early crop.

Meanwhile I've been digging up the first of this years maincrop:

Update March 2009: They didn't germinate, so I'll know not to try that again.

September Sunshine

Still plenty to eat from the plot - carrots, cabbages, courgettes, tomatoes, raspberries, blackberries and now grapes.



These are still going strong; I used to stop them after five or six trusses but now I train them up to the top of the roof.

Maincrop spuds

Well the rain finally stopped so I took the chance to dig these up. Should keep me going for a week or two.
