So, why have there not been many posts in the height of summer gardening? The weather bites, pure and simple. It's cold and wet, so everything is late and things are eaten by slugs that are encouraged by the wet weather. A 'La Nina' summer it seems. We managed to cultivate a few small Jack pumpkins (the size of 5-pin bowling balls) and a few tomatoes, but some sort of blight seems to have ripped through them both over the past few days. Our solace is that our cabbage and kale are going great, and should last us most of the winter.
