Signs of life

The cucumber is finally bearing something resembling fruit. They didn't get much of a summer and have been slow to grow, weighed down as they were by nasty aphids, which we now seem to have largely conquered. We moved the trug to a new spot in the yard and we're hoping that having my favourite brick wall at their back will help to keep them warm over winter.

The trug is still looking a little unbalaced as the beetroot refuses to pull its weight and actually grow. We'll probably pull the capsicum from the middle soon and try and plant something wintery in the space instead. I have some broccoli seeds, but might save those for the collection of deep pots I have lying around.
