Chatting with others on the allotments, we are all agreed that (a) everything is a month late and (b) the last few warm weeks have turned a poor year into a decent one. My tomatoes are only just turning, we have just started picking runner beans and the courgettes are still producing in early October. I have only finished digging my potatoes this week, over a month late. In the photo you can see the last two mini cucumbers. A strange year but unexpectedly productive.
