The summer has sort of come back to NE Scotland, which typically means anything could happen and usually does.. Temperatures are key, now to get the last tomatoes ripe along with the sweetcorn, it was 9.8 in the greenhouse over night, don't want it going any lower for at least another  month, but we often get a frost in September, so I need to dig the potatoes out next.

At last some forecast sunshine from Saturday for at least a week. The summer weather has been frustrating to say the least. Most crops have done well but our runner beans have suffered from, we think, lack of warmth allowing the flowers to form - the result is having a crop for August only when we normally are pulling until the end of September. 

Our sweet peppers are pretty slow maturing but hopefully this coming week will help. As I said most veg have done well with best crops being achieved for leeks, swede, cauliflowers, tomatoes & cucumbers. As always in gardening winning more than losing is perfectly acceptable.
