The onion tops have bent over as they start to ripen but the plants and everything around them are waterlogged. If they don't dry out it creates a perfect breeding ground for all manner of fungal diseases.
Potato containers are standing in water so the rain can’t drain through the compost - it just sits there. Don’t you just love the uncertainty of it all.
I suppose my one crumb of comfort is that because I have small beds reachable from paths I don’t have to stand on the waterlogged soil to harvest anything.

On a brighter note I found two ripe strawberries lurking under the foliage. This means that my strawberry season has extended to fourteen weeks although two fruits hardly constitutes a harvest. Next year I intend to get half a dozen of the ever-bearing type to further extend the season.
