July - first sun
The peas rapidly succombed to some kind of rot and I have now removed them. It didn't seem to affect the runner beans.
On the whole, things are slower. But there are some positives:
I harvested my first cauliflower! All Year Round, Sown on March 12 so that makes...19 weeks. Huummm that's quite long. I have now sown some Candid charm type which apparently take only half that. Still, I was quite pleased.
We are currently eating: french and runner beans, lettuce, baby leaf, beetroot (YES!), artichokes, mint and raspberries, as well as the spuds of course.
Harvested the onions, quite a few good kilos there.
And I have sowed: more french beans, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, mizuna, some parsnips (don't know if that will work), Autumn King carrots, planted out the leeks, and the brussel sprouts (which have been a bit attacked by slugs :-(
