Garden on the first of November (many days late)

There was a brief break in the rain today, so I finally got around to taking a few shots. Right now there’s an abundance of leafy greens ready to harvest – plus parsnips, leeks and salsify for winter.

Swiss chard in the sun. The leaf miners have moved on leaving chard leaves to harvest.

I thought I’d try chicory to over winter. They’re doing great, by far the most abundant green in the garden. Now I have to figure out how to eat them as they are quite bitter.

Gorgeous radicchio. I haven’t harvested any yet.

Salad burnet – a medieval solution to winter greens. I love how the drops of water reflect the sun.

My strawberries are still putting on fruit. Unfortunately, the extra water from the rain ruins the flavour.
