THINGS TO DO AND WHAT TO SOW IN OCTOBER

October is really a great time to forage for wild damsons,sloes,elderberry and Blackberry’s to name a few all great for making a variety of fruit Vodkas and Gins which will be ready in time for Christmas.Its also the time for harvesting apples and a great way to use bruised apples which wont store is to make cider vinegar its really easy and far superior to shop bought.

Still lots to sow and plant really important to get garlic planted as it needs the cold to split the bulbs,and if you don’t like garlic try elephant garlic much milder,you can still sow salads and lettuce Meraviglia inferno will cope with the coldest weather as will ‘Lunga delle Cascine’ broad beans
