July's diary has been started

July's diary has been started - click here to visit.
After a really good start to the year, crops are either static or suffering from the present weather. Never seen courgettes to be so slow to take off. We need some warmth and sunshine! We went to visit Barnsdale this Sunday, (it was Geoff Hamilton's garden and featured on Gardeners' World). It is now owned by Geoff's son and daughter-in-law, the crops growing in the allotment garden, ornamental kitchen garden and other parts of the garden seem to be suffering in very much the same way as ours - windswept and suffering from lack of warmth. Brassicas were well netted against the wood pigeons that were much in evidence too.

It would be interesting to know if other areas of the country are faring better than us. Use the comments attached to this post to let us know.

When we get the chance we will pop some more photos and video of Barnsdale on the web.
