#mygardenrightnow - autumn

Michelle Chapman over at Veg Plotting is organising another project and once more has challenged gardeners to take a photo/photos of themselves in their gardens  or on their allotments this weekend to show what is happening across the country. She organised two similar challenged earlier in the year My contributions to earlier challenges are here and here.

There is still time to join in just one photo of you in your garden, or on your allotment, is all that is needed. See here for guidelines.

I've decided to follow the same format as I used on the last challenge and describe how we spent Saturday, a typical gardening day at this time of year.

In the garden the first job was to water the tubs on the patio.
Whenever I am in the garden I am looking for subjects to photograph.
I particularly liked this group of flowers.
There was little else needed doing in the garden other than to collect some tomatoes for lunch.
After lunch it was off to the plot where the pace was completely different.

At this time of year there is still lots to harvest and lots of tidying up to do. We didn't photograph the weeding I did whilst Martyn dug the last lot of potatoes.

We stopped for a coffee. An apple had fallen from the Tickled Pink tree and so we decided to have a little treat with our coffee.
After lunch I started to prune the Glencoe raspberry.
I cut out all this year's fruiting stems but couldn't tie in the new canes as I ran out of string. A job for Sunday.

Then most of our time was spent harvesting.
I picked blackberries.
Martyn cut a cabbage.
I picked the rest of the Tickled Pink apples - all three of them.
Martyn picked plums from Marjorie's Seedling.
Just before we headed home I picked some flowers from the perennial bed ...
... and the annual bed.

Then it was home for dinner and to eat the cauliflower that we also harvested.
That was of course after evicting the little green caterpillar.

Sunday there will be more of the same, now I must remember to take some string!
