As we’ve gotten further into September, we as a family have been harvesting our crops from both my garden and from my parents allotment.  Here’s Dad and Miss L harvesting a crop of salad potatos, which are now all washed and stored in potato bags.

Arthur waiting to help harvest the runner beans.

However there is one very important crop I can’t harvest at the moment – my apples!  They are all ripe for picking but we had an unexpected last minute visitor.

Normally the female dove nests in the tree in the spring, and has never been here in the autumn. So until they’ve flown the nest, our apple tree is off limits.  But it’s lovely to watch them flying in and out of the tree while I’m washing up, which more than makes up for a lack of apple pies.

What are you harvesting?
