How does your garden grow?

I'm on a voyage of discovery in my first garden.
It's mostly about the veggies at the moment but I'm also discovering lots about flowers and other plants - quite often the hard way and always on a very tight budget.
But this blog is not just about my garden, it's about all the things I see and discover in Sussex and beyond and I would love to hear from you too.

Squash and pumpkin harvest

I spent much of the weekend tidying up the garden ready for winter.
Plenty of plants are still cropping and on Sunday I picked the sweet dumpling squashes.
One was soon put too good use in a vegetable curry, also starring other home-grown ingredients such as dwarf French beans, courgettes, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, peppers and chillis.
All this was accompanied with a side serving of Bombay alloo, made with my meagre crop of King Edwards (I'll definitely water them more next year).
Nonetheless, it was a good reward for a hard day's graft.
