machinery doesn't cost much in the way of salary & benefits...
Try not to think about the higher nutritional value of the frozen ones
My broad beans, that are usually reliable croppers, have been rubbish too.
I might end up with one meal's worth from the whole crop.
Just sown french beans a few days ago - hoping I'm not too late.
At this moment it looks like Turks Turban squash is going to be this years star performer.
||My sweetcorn sown indoors didn't even germinate because it was too cold in the house, slimey hoards have had most of the beans, and the outside leaves of the cabbages, but they are growing through it I think, only roots that did anything are the salsify, and havn't looked at last weeks sowing yet. Some leeks seem to have survived the birds dust baths and the potatoes aren't bad.|
Carrots & parsnips are better than at any other time since changing the siting of the garden.
Radishes went mental; really mental. Enormous but hollow....& tangy.
Leeks doing well. Spuds thriving despite neglect.
All the herbs planted have gone to seed very very quickly.
Beans late to show anything, but now flowering; but this is the third planting as the two previous plantings produced nothing....didn't even shoot.
Hail destroyed the crops of several people we know here; also cherries have been a disaster.
Certain Geo-engineering conspiracy theorists I know have that "I told you so" look in the eyes.....

At least you have ninety percent left.
