Well it pretty much has rained until now. Comparing my pictures from last year the crops are behind by about two weeks. That's bad news for the 'exotics' (peppers, tomatoes, blueberries). Thank goodness I decided not to give any space over to sweetcorn! Here in Scotland without a proper greenhouse you deserve a medal for growing tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines, okra etc. My cucumbers have bombed completely. The tomatoes are good for quantity but now I'm biting my nails waiting for them to turn.

|Blueberries or Greenberries?|
On the plus side the runner beans are going like the clappers, courgettes too, and they haven't yet succumbed to mildew. The raspberries just keep on coming. Leaf and root beetsa re doing well and brassicas are looking good for the autumn. I've done some successional sowing where the potatoes were but now I've had to accept that it's too late to sow anything in the remaining space where the peas were. So it's goodbye 2011. 2012 starts here with the first manure being dug in.

Maybe the weeds will stop growing soon too.
