Shutting up shop for Winter

I haven't posted anything here for ages, so you probably guessed this: I'm shutting up my blog for the Winter.

My garden looks bedraggled and messy at present, and there is very little for me to write about. Who wants to see photos of my last few tomatoes, still holding out against the encroaching Blight?

My remaining cucumber plants are still producing a few fruits, but they are not very appealing!

We've already made a few jars of Sweet Chilli Sauce, so even the incentive to pick more of the chilli crop is much reduced now.

Fortunately, just as the gardening season tails off, the best time of year for my other hobby - fungi-hunting - begins. This is what I'll be doing for the next few months. Thanks for following, and see you next Spring!

Amanita muscaria - Fly Agaric

Boletus edulis - Penny Bun

Lactarius deliciosus - Saffron Milkcap

Mycena haematopus - Burgundydrop Bonnet

Calocera viscosa - Yellow Stagshorn

Laccaria amethystina - Amethyst Deceiver

Helvella crispa - White Saddle


  1. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog this season as always, always loads of information for the small garden veg grower. Many thanks.

  2. I thoroughly agree with Dilly . Cant wait for the next season to begin ! Enjoy the fungi foraging ! :)
