    Thought we may get it better in the south of france, but we seem to have the same problems as you guys, as we had the same hot March, wet April, and then hot May.

    Kelvedon Wonder again, so maybe that variety have done well in the changeable weather. The broad beans have set too, despite getting some brown spot

    But the spinach has set seed, the lambs lettuce didn't take off and I have only 3 parsnips germinated!
    Ah well, plenty of strawberries to munch on, when it all looks a bit bleak!

    Funny you should mention sweetpeas... I have biju sweetpeas are not doing that great, in a tub and are not showing much sign of flowering this year.

    On a plus side my runnerbeans have gone wild and have just found out they are white lady! French dwarf beans were looking a bit sorry for themselves but over the last week they have really blossomed and I have plenty of flowers. Just hang in there and your peas might have a growth spurt! Keep us updated

    My black pod runners are a good two to three foot and winding beautifully. My climbing peas are dreadful. My early peas are flowering and should see a decent crop. All the frenchies (dwarf) are in the tunnel. Broad beans are going great guns and we had our first meal of those tonight. Potatoes seem to be slow in growth though.
