Autumn sunshine

Unseasonally warm recently with temperatures up to 24˚C and wall-to-wall sunshine. It's been a great help to the autumn raspberries and I've been picking a tubful of big juicy fruits every couple of days.

The Christmas potatoes are coming along a treat as well with lots of lush top growth. I have three bags with four tubers in each but what I need is no frosts for the next month or so to give the spuds chance to develop.

I can always bring them into the greenhouse which usually remains frost-free till the outside temp. drops below about -5 but I'd prefer to leave them outside to gain full advantage of any sunshine.
