A lovely day here in N London too - wall to wall blue sky this morning when I was out for a walk.  Hail in Warrington, apparently!

Rhubarb was just showing last w/e in L'pool and the autumn onions, garlic and broad beans are coming on too.

We need some decent frost though to kill the aphids and what have you.

What would you do?

I'd grow veg, or better still, soft fruit, which will stand a bit of shade....
