Autumn







Saving seed is so satisfying not just because seeds and seed pods come in every shape and size but because you are getting something for nothing. This year I have saved radish, pumpkin, chicory and flax seeds.

I visited a plot very different from my own recently. It was an extremely inspiring garden and made me realise that the way in to a vegetable garden is important. This plot had two rowan trees heavy with berries and a vine climbing up a willow wigwam. This winter I am going to prepare the ground for a wild flower meadow around my fruit trees and lay a path straight through the centre of the plot. Garlic is in the ground and asparagus too. The swarm I hived has been working hard all summer and should have plenty of stores to see them through the winter.
