Chilly nights and morning dews are making their presence felt… “It must be Autumn” So that means its time to give your livestock shelters a once over and make any repairs. When doing so also give some consideration to a storage space that will allow you to have an emergency supply of hay and a couple of bags of molassed sugarbeet pellets. Just in case snow arrives in a few weeks time… There is nothing worse than carrying food whilst trudging around in snow! Now onto the veg, brassicas should be firing on all cylinders, late potatoes almost ready for harvesting and runner beans looking tired. If you can, leave a few strong mature pods on a couple of plants to keep for home saved seed. Pumpkins will now be showing signs of ripening. Don’t be alarmed if your squashes are looking like they have a serious disease, it is simply nature taking its course. The foliage is starting to shut down as the fruits skin starts to thicken and mature.
