October - WEEK 4

The clocks will have gone back and it will be early evenings again, the first of the frosts will be with us, leeks and parsnips can be picked as and when needed. The majority of the harvest will be done. Your wines should be finishing up and require racking. My wines that have not come up to standard are then stilled in the traditional Bulgarian way into rakia which makes me very popular with my neighbours as I can't stand the stuff!


If you still have digging to be done this is the time to do it. I am normally pruning back my grapes, although this can be done in spring as well. Grapes only fruit on new wood so pruning is essential. This is a time in my self reliant garden when most of the hard work has been accomplished and I am enjoying the fuits of my labour - quite litreally!
