Churning up the Land

Hello

Down at the farm, there are still loads of fruit and vegetables to pick but the farmer has been out ploughing making precise furrows in the dark, dry soil. I wonder what's going in here?




The Autumn raspberries are just coming on line.


Cabbages are sprouting everywhere, making a blue-green contrast to the other crops.


It's as high as an elephant's eye, but is it the right sort of corn? So sweet and juicy.


A pretty row of daisies, not to be eaten though.



Runner bean wigwams are at their beany best.



Even the beetroots look so tempting.



Good old farm, what would I do without you.

Cheerio

    1. They are wonderful and have been going on for months now, all the different varieties coming on line just when the others are running out. x

  2. I agree those raspberries look fabulous - we have a British backpacker staying with us at the moment, who I showed the picture as something to look forward too when she returns to the UK next week!
    Have a lovely week

    1. We are very lucky and will miss it when the farm closes in the next year or two.

    1. Yes, but I think we'll have to wait until next year to eat them!
