Oh well - it is what it is - guess I will try and replant a fall garden......

Depending on the size of your garden maybe a food forest is the way forward for you, drought proof and flood proof Geoff says.

Maybe there is an important reason why you have to start again.

Nothing elaborate - just 2 each 12x24 raised beds. Had tomatoes, peppers summer squash and cucumbers that were just really starting to produce.....

It's been an unusual season all round. I have some flowers on my tomato plants but they're usually covered with flowers by now. The beans are coming along, but sometimes they're not sure what the weather is doing.

This time last year the peppers and chilli's were absolutely flourishing, cucumbers too. The weather in the UK has been so odd I haven't even bought a cucumber plant yet, so I probably won't. The courgettes are doing great, and so are the herbs and I think all of the broccoli plants are going to outgrow me.

The last three years I've tried to invest in perennials, increasing those each year. Gave the raspberry a much larger container today, it looks happier now that it can spread it's roots out further. Also gave it some nitrogen that I give to the Blueberry Bush. This year I bought some pellets especially for the olive tree and bushes, they seem to like it.

Half the beetroot and carrots have gone due to the rain, although a friend bought those for me this year.

The lettuce is doing OK and as long as I have salad and herbs I'm happy. Today I put my third batch of lettuce seeds in.

The pests really got to my first crop of Pak Choi.

Soaking ginger prior to putting that in.

I'm getting to the stage that I'd really like an allotment, although I'd have to share it, as it would be too much work for me on my own.

I'd like an allotment with half of it undercover. A huge walk in greenhouse that is heated in the wintertime.
