Autumn is definitely here (and probably has been since early August) and with it comes the fading of our summer veg, but we still have plenty of tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes and peppers, with a few aubergines and runner beans, and a bit of basil too. Both French beans and bulb fennel are over for another season.
We do have plenty of autumn veg available - spring greens, kale, chard, potatoes, onions, globe artichokes, parsley, beetroot, carrots, cabbages, salad leaves, crooknecked squash, coriander - plus swedes, leeks, cauliflowers, red cabbages, parsnips and romanesco from Cargease Organics nearby. We also hope to have squash and pumpkins and purple-top turnips available by the end of October.
