Organic September

Organic September is coming to an end. Loved the new format of it being over a month this year.

We have been adding our own organically grown fruit & veg into the evening meals we have cooked for guests during September. September is such a good month for the range of harvest. There has been white cabbage, carrots, herbs, cooking apples, strawberries & blackcurrants. The salad leaves we have kept going through most of the year – lettuce and rocket.

Sept Tomatoes ripening in polytunnel at Aurora B&B

We have enjoyed something, in our own meals, from the garden most days. There are some things in such small quantities like the 3 runner beans, 6 french beans 1 head of broccoli. Our tomatoes are only ripening in quantity now – it’s worth the wait as the flavour is superb. I put 2 varieties of cherry tomatoes in hanging baskets in the polytunnel, along with tucking some at the end of an under cover raised bed. Don’t know if the tomato seeds had been mis-labelled but what I ended up with were much larger plants than anticipated. The new Chase Organics seed catalogue arrived with my Living Earth magazine so better go & mark up what is needed for next year, whilst I remember this years lessons!
