A Break In The Weather?

So weather wise October hasn't been the best of months - wet and windy (but thankfully not as bad as in some parts of the world). But with the change in the month the weather also seems to have changed as well - lets hope it is here to stay! Brighter and colder - just what we want.

Despite the weather, October was a great month for us we did one of our favourite jobs of the year - judging our Annual School Pumpkin competition. A few pictures and details of the overall winners can be found at 2012 Pumpkin Competition Results. Well done to everyone who took part and we look forward to doing all again next year!

We also had a great day out when we were invited over to the Aspinal Foundation's Howletts Wildlife Park to see what Elephants, Gorillas and Lemurs thought of Mouse Melons (a crop that Milly chose to grow for the first time this year) - overall the verdict from the animals was 'mixed'! Here on the nursery everyone thinks they are lovely and a great addition to salads - and so we have decided to add them to our range.

With the weather having been so mild this Autumn things are running just a little bit late! In previous years we have usually lifted most of our fruit and hedging, but this year we haven't started just yet. Unlike many suppliers, we prefer to see the leaves at least fade to yellow before lifting - working with nature rather than pushing it! But the leaves have turned and so over the next few weeks everything will be out of the ground and available.

So now is the time to plan your Autumn and Winter plantings. The sooner your plants are ordered the sooner you will have them and be able to get them in; another job done before Winter really kicks in!

For many the Autumn signals the 'end of the season' but in reality it isn't - its just a time when we change what we are eating fresh from the garden. Surely the first Parsnip or Jerusalem Artichoke of the year is just as exciting as the first Asparagus or Sweetcorn?

In the gardening calendar things may slow down a little bit just now - but its also time to plan for the new year ahead. Without wishing the year away, it wont be too long until Christmas Day afternoon - the traditional time for sowing onions. So relax a little, but not too much!
