Still a few cucumbers growing on the plants and the chillies are reddening up. Not sure the green peppers are going to grow much more - they're a petite variety!
The courgettes have all but given up - as usual I didn't get very many - despite the addition of horse manure in their pots this year and regular feeding.
Wondering what might happen with the potatoes I planted. A bit of a try it and see, as I put a couple of tubers in an old dustbin and when they finally emerged, have been earthing them up. I noticed there's one that's grown up in the compost heap. The squash I planted on top of the old heap never made it beyond a few inches before being eaten by slugs.
Debating planting up some purple sprouting broccoli for over the winter - I spotted a few plants in a local nursery. Don't have the space for anything larger - like cabbage or sprouts but some winter veg might be nice for a change.
