Got a good early crop from Firestorm runner beans then we had such a hot summer and no rain that all the flowers fell of the Scarlet Emperor and the Firestorm packed up.
Sweet peppers were great last year but were small and shrivelled this year despite watering.
Perpetual spinach failed to germinate. Second sowing produced 2 weedy plants.
The curly kale isn't curly, looks like cow food.
Sweet corn, broad beans (because before the hot weather), courgettes and cucumbers did well. Tomatoes were OK but kept getting eaten by thirsty birds, despite water left out for them.
Onion sets did well, but spring onions didn't germinate. They never do, why do I bother? OH likes them.
