Its been the wettest June in memory. We had a brief spell of warm weather, then rain, rain rain! This time last year we were desperate for rain, now we feel like its never going to stop. But I have got a lot done in the potager
Climbing beans – had to replant a few because of snail damage. They are a real pest this year
Maize also germinated inconsistently. Butternut, gems squash and courgette Cocos (dry shell beans) just starting to germinate Potatoes flowering – hopefully we can keep blight away. All the rain does not bode well for the health of tomatoes and potatoes.
Red cabbage, sprouting broccoli, Romanesco and cauliflower
A range of peppers Lamunyo, Doux d’Espagne, Yummy yellow and a small salad variety 0 need to look up the name! Next batch of tomatoes in – Merveille, Stupice
Cut and come again salad still very successful for us, but I have planted a few Romaines too
