whats hot in your garden ?.good year for my beans ,just normal old bush beans are good,my new veense beans are not to bad,giant bean of stuttgart a bit slow but look ok,and the other bean i have is scarlet runner as always a late starter for me but welll worth the wait.Tomatoes ,black cherry ,yellow pear ,purple cherokee and stripey pete are fantastic buy my hillbilly ,i will not grow again as they tend to be hollow. bad year for pumpkin ,zucchini and cucumber.but still great to end the day poking around in the garden.

Diggers Bush Cucumbers - fantastic producers, ugly skins but very yummy. Short lived though, but it could have been the mini heat wave we had - that killed my beans too. I also randomly bought a packet of "Winter Spinach" seeds - YUMMMMMM! Will definately have those again. My tomatoes are very late but once again my Apollo's are producing perfect sized tomatoes. The bushes are incredibly green and lush this year, will have to wait and see what the yield is like.

Rhubarb & chillies. Unfortunately I'm not having too much luck with anything else this year.
