Friday would have been much better if it hadn't been for the strong wind blowing for most of the day.
On the plot we had our best harvesting day of the year. Our Marshmello strawberry plants which are in their second year have produced in abundance. Quite a few berries had been nibbled by slugs and one or two showed some sign of mould due to the wet and muggy weather of the last few days but that still left plenty for us. Our day’s harvest is detailed below.
I made some late sowing of carrots, peas, sweet corn, broad and french beans on the 18th June. Most of these are just starting to germinate although I couldn’t see any signs of the sweet corn. If we have a decent autumn I’m hoping for these late sowings to make up for the bad start to the season. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
