The light has suddenly changed; we're getting long shadows and golden early evening sun slanting across the garden; the temperature has dropped; autumn has definitely arrived in this part of western Scotland. Our food growing efforts this year have been nothing short of pathetic - this is the remnants of the vegetable patch, which mainly has provided delicious meals for the slugs throughout the summer months.

Nonetheless the garden has given us a magnificent crop of blackberries. For next year I think I'm going for more passive cultivation - so potatoes, herbs, and fruit trees and bushes. Nothing else seems to work...
