The mind boggles at your swimming cozzie, Frank!
I think most people's soft fruit is ruined by this damp weather. My strawberries are rubbish - though the raspberries are OK. The canes only grew about 4' high though, because it was so dry - but the current wet weather has swelled the fruit. Good crop - but hard to harvest with lots of lush greenery as well.
I hope your grandchildren realise how spoilt they are (in the best possible way) - Sunday roast on a Tuesday? Lucky them!
The Peak District is one part of the country I have yet to visit properly Jo - what have seen of it I know it's lovely. Hard to tell your Peaks from your Exmoors in driving rain though!
I see that Tatton is being shown on BBC2 on Friday before GW. Weather is said to be getting better by the end of the week. Let's hope so.
