Harvested more new potatoes and a cabbage for our evening meal. (we didn’t just have spuds and cabbage, that would have been very dull!).

The cabbage and lettuce seem to be doing exceptionally well this year but I think potato yields are down on previous years. We had a very cool and overcast May which must have set them back after the sunny April.
What has suffered badly from the weather is the tree fruit crop. The storms of a few weeks ago have caused a lot of wind-burn with many browned and curled leaves. The fruitlets have also dropped in their hundreds, far more than the traditional June drop. But that's gardening for you. Never two years the same and you never know what sort of crop you'll get till you actually harvest it.
