I have a really small garden in this year due to my health issues but I have a couple of tomatoes in the greenhouse just about ready to pick and the Piekny Jas runners are flowering and starting to produce beans, these will be kept for seed. The other pole beans aren't even flowering yet. Only have one cucumber vine doing anything the others are just sitting there, I think I had some bad seed. The raspberries and strawberries outdid themselves, we got all we wanted then invited our neighbor to come over and pick what she wanted.

 Bad year all round planted 4 rows of peas and had enough for one meal. Runner beans are ok after a slow start.
Winter greens are going well , had to puddle them in the  ground being so hard and cracked  Well have to see what next week
brings.

Dont think your the only grower to have a poorer than normal season been a dry year for most we had things that were hard to get germinated and some that were late getting away .. Don't know about what next week will bring I'm just hoping next year will be better..
