Same down here in Farnham, Surrey and would you believe, it's still raining?! Runner beans useless, courgettes and squash not much better. Root crops such as parsnips, beetroot, carrots, spring onions and radish seem to be liking the wet conditions for some reason best known to themselves. Cucumbers in the greenhouse are the real saving grace, masses and masses of them. Must be the high humidity. Toms, chillies, peppers and aubergines also in the greenhouse are fruiting but incredibly slow. Probably won't ripen. Must be the coldest, wettest and dullest summer I have ever known. Still, hope reigns (rains!) eternal.
