How was it for you?
10 days ago I would have said that it had been a disaster, but the glorious spell of weather we're enjoying has allowed a partial rescue.
Anything that was supposed to crop in the summer was a waste of time. Peas, beans, courgettes, onions, spinach, lettuce and soft fruit were all consumed by pests or disease - or simply drowned.
But everything due to crop this month looks good. The rhubarb has loved all the rain; golden raspberries are weighed down with fruit; the salsify, Swiss chard and yellow beetroot all look good. Even the outdoor tomatoes are turning red. And the sweetpeas are amazing - the whole garden is full of their scent.
I'm thinking that if we are to have more of these wet, stormy summers I may have to have a different planting scheme.
Anyone have any suggestions for food crops that slugs/snails hate and that can survive monsoons?
