Here in the UK the summer finished yesterday and autumn has begun - at the moment daytime temperatures are in the mid teens or low twenties celsius if we are lucky, and at night here in East Anglia it's around 10 or 12 C

We've had a lot of heavy rain in this region over the past few days and it's not been possible to do much gardening other than deadheading and picking some fruit and vegetables.

At the moment I have autumn raspberries and grapes fruiting and we have tomatoes, runner beans and courgettes for vegetables.  The broccoli has been planted out and it will spend the winter growing very slowly, then in the spring we should get lovely purple shoots to cook for our supper. 

I'm sorry, I don't grow the vegetables you mention.

I think that your summers and our summers may be very different ... can you tell us a bit more about the weather conditions where you are?

Talkback: How to ripen late tomatoes

Part of the process of photosynthesis is that it fixes CO2 into sugars - isn't that what we want when ripening tomatoes?

Hi Disha and welcome!

Are you posting from a laptop, pc, tablet or iphone?  You can't post pictures on here from an iphone, but you could upload them to a photo-hosting service and then post the link
