The weather was a bit unpredictable this year so my veggies were Well Confooozed - the courgettes were a hug disappointment after last year's mammoth harvests (this seemed to be partly due to the fact that some of the plants seemed to be male, therefore not fruit bearing - although weirdly some of them swung the other way towards the end of the summer - transgender squashes???).
The Tumbling Toms were very late developers, hence I ended up with eight jars of Glutney (see previous instalment);
the so-called "climbing beans" could hardly be bothered to leave the ground;
the basil finally decided to get going about a month ago, just in time for the cold to kill it off; and the experimental aubergine spent so long deciding whether to come out to play or not that it was just too late - this poor little thing was not destined for greatness
