November roundup

Mine own fil’berts, a dwarf bushy hazel, 8ft after twenty years, maybe I should call them Fil’bobs

Once again no problem mixing sweet corn varieties & cross pollinating, included red one, still others all fine

Good year for Barberry fruits, make a tart jelly, this berberis banned some places as alternate host of wheat rust

Time to collect butternuts for storing, only three per plant, that’ll do, ps leave a short length of stem on each fruit

Watercress farm, recycled kids pool, needs renovating, been invaded by duckweed and spike rush, much watercress missing, I blame visiting duck….
