Look at these poor efforts. They have been growing all summer long and this is all they could manage! Humph!
Meanwhile the peas, though rarely watered, are still valiantly pea-ing on grizzled stems: and the raspberries are joyfully producing mega-fruits as if they are thriving in the Garden of Eden.
No carrots next year but yes potatoes, courgettes, peas, tomatoes and all the jolly herbs that have been pepping up my cooking all summer.
