and a great deal of rainfall!
I've covered the squash with fleece because the nights are chilly and frost is threatened.
It is not a very good crop this year, there has been far too little sun for them to fully mature and I'm concerned that the skins have not hardened well enough for them to store for long. In normal years I grow enough to last at least until late spring.
Surprisingly, the coriander has loved all this wet. I have a huge amount of green seed. Will it ripen? Should I harvest the plants and hang them up indoors to dry? Advice please! Usually they dry out of doors on the plant, but this year, THIS year!!
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
