The August heat and draught is upon us, though summer has been very short indeed. Cool and cloudy weather prevailed till mid July, leaving hot weather crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers in very short supply this year.
Here are a few that have, if not quite thrived, at least produced some fruits to our labours.
Belarussian Heart is doing well in the garden, despite the cool spring. will try this one again next year and hope for an earlier start. If it can produce such lovely, huge fruit on a bad year, imagine what it might do on a good year?
Will update you in a few days time as they begin to ripen up. It is not going to be a great year for sauces and salsas due to the late start to summer, but... no blights or diseases either, so we are blessed.
