Good morning starshine

The prolonged high pressure over the UK has its downsides but for us here in the sunny southeast of Ireland it has meant cool nights and mostly fine weather with the odd spells of cloud. Not every day has started with sun but yesterday the cold night and instant sun covered the garden with glitter.

The sprouting broccoli went in a bit late and the plants are not as big as they should be for this time of year but they are doing well and should crop next spring

It is a race to get the apples in before the first frost but we should manage with the low-hanging fruit

    Thats a very good show. Much better than the half a dozen curly kale I have on the allotment. I wish I could share the Asian Pears with you, i have a carrier bag full and thats just for starters 🙂
