Planting winter onions

Planting onion sets

Just the tips showing (mostly)

Fleeced to stop the birds from pulling the sets out

the runners getting big

the leeks are putting on weight
The blackberries are really plumptious this year.  I hadn't realised how poor last year's crop was (it was the first year I've grown them) until I saw this year's berries.
And at home in the garden, it is time for the outdoor tomatoes to go in the compost bin.

It is sad in a way, signifying the end of summer, but I'm always pleased to start tidying away the messy leaves and cutting down plants that have finished their jobs for the year.
