Are you finding this is a poor season?

Spoke too soon - the wind has destroyed my beans. Huge gusts this afternoon gradually destroyed the frame and dumped them onto my leeks. Fed up.

Potatoes & apples are poor but everything else is doing very well. I am thrilled with the way everything has grown so well, especially runner beans, tomatoes & cucumbers. About to plant my winter cabbages and kale.

I think there is a good response to the question here from Buddyboy. Did you miss it?

Morning Glory not flowering. Why?

Lily, I too am in Hampshire and although mine flowered (eventually) the pink stripe they should have, has faded! They just look like bindweed now.  I presumed it was the heat! I'm blaming it for everything which has not worked as I wanted it to.
