End of the Season

This morning I picked what must be almost the last sweet peas of the season. I've been picking a small bunch for the vase on my desk at work since June and they have been just delightful. Nothing smells quite like summer other sweet peas and tomatoes of course. We had a real success with some small tomatoes in a hanging basket outside the back door this year. I grew two varieties in the same basket; balconi red and gartenperle. They were both delicious and a favourite with Mark for his sandwiches. Gartenperle was probably the tastiest, the most prolific and a curious pinky red. I collected the last of the tomatoes at the weekend and this afternoon the plants have finally gone in the compost bin.
