Terrible season for gooseberries and strawberries. Excellent for black currant ( although last years crop were bigger) and raspberries. Last weeks weather have given the climbing french beans a bit of a boost but the courgettes and squashes are painfully slow. The potatoes have blight , apart form the purple ones, so i have cut the foliage off . I dug some up and they are mainly fine so I will provably leave them in the ground for a little longer. Picked some red cabbage ( Kalibos) today, planted out more leeks and endive, also moved some lettuce seedlings which were a bit crowded. The pigeons had a good go at my kale plants but I think with a bit of luck some might survive. Picked some mange tout but again its not beans a good season for me with peas. Had a great crop of braod beans though and I think I will cook them , skin them and fry tthem with some garlic, small onions and bacon in olive oil and a smidgeon of white wine later in the week. Impressive weed growth.
