One of my first jobs after the holiday was to harvest the spuds which I had left in the ground after the blight hit. I wasn't expecting much as the tubers that I had harvested were split and not too big. However, the yield is rather good after all. I laid them out on a table to dry on a nice sunny and hot Sunday.
Second disaster is that the runner beans have gone past their best, I tried some for a meal and they are stringy. I'm going to grow less next year since they are not a family favourite and will grow climbing French beans instead which have been delicious. There are plenty of them but they should have been picked mid holiday (about 2 weeks ago).
The sweetcorn are nearly ready, although the cobs don't look that big, probably because it hasn't rained much and I haven't watered them (I was on holiday), but we'll wait and see, it's the taste that's important.
