Lovely morning

I went to the plot this morning, just to empty the kitchen waste bucket on to the compost heap, but it was such a clear crisp day I stayed to dig a bean trench....

I filled it with  kitchen waste and nasturtium foliage which has been running rampant in this mild autumn.  I just knew I had let those nasturtiums grow for some reason, not just laziness.

The green manure (winter mix) is getting quite tall now and there have been no frosts to knock them back, so I sheared one bed back, to see if it grows another crop.

The parsnips tops have started to die back.  I don't know if this is normal or if they are being attacked by something (I did find a little maggot on one of the leaves), I've never grown them successfully before.

Dug up some fine leeks and a few decent sized parsnips.

I also pulled a hundred little nasturtium seedlings out of the asparagus bed.
