Aptly named

Friday was a disappointingly cool day for the middle of July with a high of 17.7°C and producing the lowest mean daily temperature of the month of 13.4°C. The overnight low was a chilly 8.0°C. Unless the temperatures improve the month will turn out to be cooler than average.
The current average for the month is about 1°C below expected at 16.0°C.

We picked our first tomato today which was German Red Strawberry from the plot greenhouse. It’s probably fair to call it a dead heat between that and Gardeners Delight growing in our home greenhouse.
I must say it’s very apt for it to have strawberry in its name as it certainly does take on a strawberry shape. It’s pictured alongside one of our Marshmello strawberries which are rather unexpectedly producing a crop of very tasty berries on the plot.
