This year has been a bad year for growing vegetables, due to the weather we have had. My mum grows chives at the side of our veggie patch and this year they have given us some good crops. Up until a few weeks ago though, they started to become rusty coloured, so inedible. Mum cut them back and I thought that was it. No more chives. I was wrong. They are starting to grow again and are looking better than before. Only little ones but still some.
The same can't be said for tomatoes. We have had some, but others haven't been very good. Lots of them have split due to the changing weather. They ripen when they get the sun, but then split when they get too wet, which they did with the pouring rain we had earlier this year. Some have still to ripen and we have left them in the hope that the weather stays sunny and dry so that they can ripen for us to eat. I'd say that we have had to compost about half of them due to them either being split or having spots on them, both which are inedible.
So, what luck or not, have you had growing veggies in your garden this year? Have you had the same problem I have had? Let me know.
