The excessive humidity has finally gone away - I was beginning to feel wilted!
The weather forecast for this and next week, looks far more amenable which is just as well, as my vegetables are going to seed. So annoying. Even those I have sown into modules to replace them don't look very happy.
The leeks in the modules are not great either and I think this might be the first year where I won't be able to grow any. I could buy some but they are too expensive once postage is added. It isn't too late to get them off the market but they only sell Musselburgh and they get rust.
Beetroot and Spinach are going to seed - again - need to sow - again! It is all very disheartening, I have never had such a bad year. Lets hope I can rescue the situation otherwise my shopping bill will rise not only for summer but winter as well as we eat a lot of leeks normally.
On a positive note though, we had a decent amount of rain yesterday which has helped matters and I have harvested most but not all of the gooseberries which were so ripe they were falling off. I should have posted a picture of the harvest but I accidentally erased it:(
Anyway, we have managed to harvest around 5lb half of which are suitable for eating as they are, the other half has been frozen for use in winter.
