The back to school harvest

Always an interesting time to see what has grown over the summer and what hasn't. Not a bad crop at all at Ravensbury, enough for a good soup I'd say. Those carrots are miles better than anything we ever get on our allotment.

Grapes in Longsight?????

St Johns has a large lean-to greenhouse which has an ancient looking grape vine. This year I did some research about how to prune it properly and we got a couple of bunches of grapes which were there waiting for us when we got back after the school holiday. They were really sweet and the children loved them.
