This month's veg - Harvest!

This is the Third and last addition to our quick and snappy posts about the vital veg to look after in September. This time we tell you what you should be expecting to harvest around this time!


Look out for a change in colour in the fruit, and apples that have fallen on the ground


When the fruits turn dark and glossy, they will be ready. Cut them from the plant just above the stem with a sharp garden knife.


Lift the roots gently to avoid disturbing smaller crops that need more time to develop.


Continue to cut the heads using a sharp knife one they reach rthe desired size.

Brussel sprouts:

Buttons can be taken from the plant this month


Red types can be harvested now

Cape gooseberries:

Leave the berries on the plant for as long as possible before the first frost
