Harvest, despite the rain

Once again, the extreme wetness has prevented serious work in the garden.  The good news is the weather is forecast to dry up this week, so maybe - just maybe - I will be able to get the summer pruning done on the fruit trees (it should have been done in July!).

All there is to do at present is harvest vegetables - the flowers have suffered so there aren't many I can cut and bring into the house.

Here is a picture of my recent crop - some monster runner beans, a giant courgette - it loves the rain! - and the Worcester Pearmain apples from my 4 year old dwarf tree which is now cropping well.
