September was glorious this year. Lots of sunshine, warm but unfortunately for the garden only one day when it rained. The grass has not needed mowing for many weeks and is now looking decidedly yellow. We hope that the plants in the garden will survive, as it is impossible to water everything. We have concentrated on watering the vegetable garden, especially the tomatoes, which have been very abundant this year. The fruit has also done very well with a plentiful supply of plums and towards the end of the month the raspberries.
