    Moschatas on the right are still quite green, though starting to die back.

    Nice! Presumably the decorative sticks are handpollination markers? Hurry up moschatas

      They have name labels on them for the different varieties, with a little ball on top to cap the cane. I only mark the stem of a hand pollinated fruit either with twisty tie for a selfed variety or colour coded thread for a cross. I think I might pick some of these before the weather turns, the ground gets very wet where they are. I'm a bit stuck thinking what to grow there next year, the ground is only workable late spring/early summer, any ideas?

        Celery or celeriac. Both will stay in the soil late and benefit from the extra water.

          Good thinking, they could certainly go in part of it. Perhaps I could do a bit of sweet corn too...
