You'd have thought that the Harvest Festival last weekend where we fed at least 100 if not 150 people from the garden would have left it slightly bare, but not a bit of it! My Dahlias have at last come into bloom and we still have an excess of produce.
This is the veg Tim and I took home just for the two of us on Saturday - although we stopped off at our allotment to share some with friends - including Poppy - here seen making short work of some fresh peas!
There are loads of nice pictures of the Harvest Festival event, including all the competition judging and Moro's lovely cooking. I've put a good selection up on Flickr here.
If you like to follow progress on the site you might also want to join our shared Abbey Gardens Flickr Group.
We had a great time at the Big Lunch with the Friends of Abbey Gardens ... kind of a launch for the garden too. There were about 50 people on the day and a big thanks to everyone who helped out and came along. For my money the best pudding prize was a close run thing between Karen's Summer Pudding (pictured on the Somewhere blog) and Stanislava's Bulgarian chocolate triangle (seen here) . More pictures from the day are on our Flickr Group and there's one for the whole nation wide Big Lunch project.
