I'd definitely struggle to enter anything into a garden show. Courgettes are only just starting, I'll pick the first couple this week, they were hard hit by the hailstones a couple of weeks since.
We've had a good fruit crop though, the raspberries have been really good and plenty of black and red currants and strawberries too. Just the blueberries left to ripen.( They were under netting so avoided the hailstones)
Veg has put on a growth spurt over the last 2 weeks, the sweetcorn has grown at least a foot during that time.
French and runner beans are setting and it's been good so far for mangetout and sugar snap peas.
At least the slug damage has lessened since application of Nemaslug.
