The middle of August now and the heatwave is finally over and we've had plenty of rain. I'm cropping potatoes, cabbages, tomatoes and courgettes as well as sweetcorn and carrots. About half the onions have been harvested for storing and there's plenty of cut flowers. Plenty of fruit too, the autumn raspberries are cropping as are the blackberries, and the plums are almost ready. The only disappointment has been the runner beans, the heat was just too much for them, though there's more flowers on them now so I should get some by next month.
