We are having a constant mix of sunshine and showers at the moment. It is more like April than August. It does mean that there is no need to water the garden though and the veg plot and the garden are lush. The tomatoes could do with more sun to ripen them, they are looking better than in previous year but are just not changing colour.
The potatoes are good and we have had a constant supply of courgettes. They have been much better than usual. The tomatoes also look better than usual but just need to ripen.
The runner beans are late this year and we have only had a few so far but the dwarf green beans have been good. The broad beans were our most unproductive yet but I put that down to the dry start to the year.
The rain is making up for it now and after wanting it to rain for the garden in June I now want it to stop! We had a hot and dry May and June and a cool and wet July and August so far. I know the grass is always greener on the other side but I want summer back and so do our tomatoes!
