This year my veg is very slow growing, and it's definitely behind in comparison to last year. This time last year I was harvesting salad leaves, tomatoes, radish and spring onion. Left: Last Summer, photo taken 13 July 2011, I was making up my own salads from items grown from seed in the garden.
This year I've only a few salad leaves ready to harvest. My spring onion is still tiny; my radishes have bolted and much of my salad didn't germinate. However, I've lots of tomatoes forming and they should be ready to eat in the next few weeks.
|Last year (photo taken 10th July 2011) I was complaining about slug damage to my courgettes and blossom rot. This year I've haven't even managed to grow a courgette fruit yet!|
