A very settled garden at the moment with the onset of winter. All the veges have been dug up and a sackful of potatoes harvested. I picked the tomatoes while green as the vine fell down in a heavy wind. These ripened up well sitting in the sun and have contributed to some great tomato soup. The rhubarb has come up well and after mounding soil around it has started to put on great stems. Looking forward to trying it. Took a section from the orange berry to see if it wil spread and help keep weeds down. All the fruiting plants are doing well and hopefully next year will see a greater amount of fruit from them.
