Oh Dear

First visit to the plot since before the Great Rains. Oh dear, oh dear. Lots of stuff has failed - tomatoes are v sorry for themselves, cucumbers likewise. In practice, they've drowned. Just overwhelmed with water, so wet has it been. Other stuff, which was healthy, looks pale and spindly and generally 'behind'. It's been just too cool and wet and all the nutrients have been washed away. Curiously the weeds seem still to be thriving.

It's been a really grim year hasn't it? I haven't planted anything for weeks, and the stuff I planted in spring has been mostly eaten by slugs.

Sure has. I'm desperate for sunshine and so are the plants.
