The potatoes will also be finished this week - we've been eating them since mid- June, so have had them for four months. The onions will also finish in a couple of days, a poor crop this year, like many other gardeners in this part of the world.
So I have been back to the greengrocer this week to buy onions and potatoes from Ormskirk (a local potato). Sad, but I still have more chard, leeks, parsnips, cabbages and purple sprouting broccoli from the vegetable plot to look forward to over the coming months.
Posting here will diminish now - the work consists mainly of clearing and composting beds for the winter and though you may be a keen gardener, photos of soil are really not very inspiring! I hope to be able to get all the preparation work done by the end of November - I'm well on track. Then there are other structural jobs to do, and things like buying a new apple tree. So I may not post so often now, only on interesting new things.
