And thanks again to Helen, The Patient Gardener for previously hosting, good luck in your new endeavors.
August began cool and cloudy, occasional hot sunny days, and not much rain, the month ended with a scorching Bank Holiday. I had to get the hose out occasionally in order to chivy up my Sweetcorn ripening.

Above average temperatures, very little rainfall and light winds where the notable hallmarks of October in the garden, temperatures did not dip below 5°C for the month and rainfall totalled 27.9mm of rain whereas October 2015 totaled 64.4mm.
A very dry month was had.

It’s that time of year again, plants are slowly going to sleep for the winter, frosts are finishing off the tender plants and the weather is quite frankly getting yucky.
