Fruit trees have failed to friut this year. Frogs produced spawn in March and I still have 50% of the tadpoles with just back legs. Frogs that have developed are barely 1cm. Early flowering plants flowered late and now crocosmia in full bloom. Tomatoes very poor only 1/2 developing. Raspberries over grown and very little fruit. Good crop of garlic which I planted last november. Peas and runner beans die. On the whole very poor this year for me. A friend of mine had nearly 300lbs of plums last year but only 7 single plums this year. Weather in yorkshire has been so unpredictable and it's had a knock on effect on allotments.
