What a resilient lot we gardeners are!

June has also been a bit of a disappointment. We have had glimpses of what could be but it hasn't really materialised into anything that we could call summer. This has been a month of adversity. We have had heavy rain, cold nights, threat of frost, gale force winds etc etc. I suppose at least we have been able to cut back on the watering - more often than not we have been heavily watered ourselves when trying to garden in the rain. On top of the weather conspiring against us we have also, (along with other gardeners across the country) experienced the scourge of contaminated manure on about 30% of our plots. Some are more affected than others. Even amidst all of this most of us have managed to get our plots looking productive. On a positive note we have managed to replace another gate.

The June photoshoot took place yesterday whilst we had a gap in the periods of rain - hardly summer sunshine though! Click here for June diary and larger photos.
