I have to reach up quite high to pick our runner beans. Not to worry if I leave some to mature as I use the seed for next year.

This basket full is for sharing - one portion for me for the freezer, 2 portions for colleagues and the fourth for me for eating for my tea.
Here is the last bunch of grapes from over 50 that have grown on the vine in the greenhouse. The variety is Muscat of Alexandria and it is a sweet dessert grape which is also used for making wine. I just eat the grapes which are delicious. Unfortunately the grapes grow too big to fit on the bunch so some go bad and I have to pick off the best grapes. DH has bought me some grape scissors so that I can thin the bunches out next year.
The leaves on the vine will now die back and fall to the ground and I'll prune the vine branches back ready for next year.
