Very soggy here, had loads of thunder earlier, but it is warm, so it's better than a slap round the face with a dead mackerel

That sounds good

Are you finding this is a poor season?

Most crops have done well here in the Fens, but greenhouse toms are tasteless (outdoor Marmande are superb though) Quince tree has only one fruit, but quite a load of pears ripening now. The first runners came through shaped like this - C, which was odd; they have reverted to normal now Flowers are the tallest they have ever been, which means a fine crop of canes holding them up. Soft fruit has been brilliant.
