No Half Measures

Saturday was another glorious summer’s day bringing with it another hottest day of the year as the thermometer hit 28.5°C late into the afternoon. It was our hottest day since 27 June 2011 when we reached 31.5°C the hottest day I’ve recorded. 

We did visit the plot but it wasn't a day for doing anything too energetic. We've reached the time of gradually change on the plot from planting up to harvesting. Whilst we still have more planting to do, leeks, winter brassicas and more french beans we can at least pick a little fruit or harvest some vegetables on each visit to the plot.
Our complete harvesting record for July can be found here.
