Cool climate crops doing well - good blackcurrant and summer raspberry crop. Ditto potatoes.

Broad beans and peas about average. Beetroot good, turnips poor, finally got third lot to germinate. Runner beans starting about on time, french beans maybe slightly earlier, but only getting one variety at present.

Lettuces good for first lot, poorish for second.

Many other things slower than last year by about 2 weeks. Tomatoes especially, only now getting a few in greenhouse. Peppers the same, chilli yield well down. Outdoor tomatoes very slow. courgettes were, but now romping away.

The warm wet weather recently has set some things going, but the cold dull June did not help.
