A Great Summer
What a fantastic summer we are having. It’s been excellent weather for all fruit and veg, but particularly the soft fruits which have enjoyed the dry weather. We even had a good crop of cherries this year. The blueberries have been plump and juicy and the raspberries have been abundant. The only plants to have suffered this year are the brassicas which have been attacked by the unusually high number of butterflies. It’s been a great year for butterflies and it’s wonderful to see them flitting around, but why is it only the large whites, also known as the cabbage whites, that visit our garden!
Enjoy the warm weather and remember to eat some fruit or vegetables straight from the plant – another treat for fruit and veg growers!
