Grrrrr - more crop setbacks.



Just been out to check the gazebo and repeg bits of it in the high wind.
Noticed that 5 of the 8 Burpless Tasty Green outdoor cucumbers growing on in pots have had their tops eaten off.
Not that they were doing much anyway in this cold wet weather but they were at least germinated and growing slowly.

The shops will no doubt have ended their planned season of supplying vegetable plants because normally everything would be out and growing well by this time.

Not looking a good year for vegetables on the allotment (apart from onion sets and garlic).

Grump.
