My ornamental plants are starting to shed their Summer beauty for more sedate Autumnal finery, but no so the vegetables and herbs. My little veggie planters are brimming with produce waiting to be pickled and we can’t eat it as fast as its growing. I added a few new things this month. I like to plant and grow herbs that are not always available at the local supermarket. A new one is fennel which comes up occasionally in recipes. So this month I added fennel, more coriander, rocket (a red variety), I was gifted three green pepper plants (Thanks Helen!) and added a few more coriander plants as we have had to buy coriander to supplement our own home-grown.

Let’s have a look at whats going on …
