The weather plays funny tricks this year!
Every year is different and this year has been more difficult than most. After a very mild winter the spring was very cold and wet which caused damage to some crops and delayed planting of others. Then suddenly we had a few hot days and ripening accelerated causing some crops to come to a premature end.
Here is a summary of where we are with some of our main crops.
The outdoor crops has finished. We will have a late crop in the poly tunnels in mid/late August.
They have been very hard picked recently but we still have a few.
A few just turning blue - should be plenty soon.
The April frost took a lot of the blossom so it will be a light crop this year. The first ones are turning colour now.
