Subject: RE: BS: Gardening 2010
My garden has been mostly having damage limitation this year, as I haven't had the time to get at it, digging in the mushroom compost I got to break up the clay and so on. I have just killed the two courgette plants. After doing very well in the compost, producing umpteen fruit, the two frosts have stopped them, the last little fingers not ripening and the leaves collapsing. So I've cut up the stems and pulled up the roots - its amazing how much came from sucha small root system - and am leaving them to collapse a bit more before composting them.

I had reasonable potato crops from bags, though not the salad ones, which I have brought in as the slugs had found them, and the main crop was producing a second flush of plant!
