The dahlias also seem to be doing well with year, although a little slow to get going.

It's been a mixed year in the veg garden. After a slow start I am now picking courgettes, beans, cucumbers and tomatoes. The yakon, given to me by Fiona, has loved all the wet weather and I'm hoping that all the top growth means there are lots of tubers below...
The biggest winner this year does seem to have been the slugs though, huge great big brown ones - YUK! It has been a constant battle between me and them, one that I think I might just be winning (those of you that know me in real life know I HATE to be beaten by anything!).
But rather than end this post on such a yukky topic I'll leave you with this detail from the centre of a Mutabilis rose - just beautiful.
