So far so good. The new raised beds are doing their jobs perfectly and allowed us to grow two sets of potatoes (early and main). Carrots have been growing well, beetroot has been harvested already and preserved and the corn is looking great.

Tomatoes have taken a long time to get moving this year and the pumpkins seemed to have stalled completely. We have had a huge haul of black currants which have been picked and juiced or frozen. The black boy peaches are looking promising again this year as are the grapes. Even the feijoa has flushed out well this season and looks like it will fruit.

In pots: cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, chillis, basil, with the latter two housed in the new cold frame.
