It’s been a weird old year…. we’ve seen lemon trees decimated and some killed off by very rare severe frosts (down to -7C, 20F), then prolonged rains into May, and a dry but milder than normal summer (average days hovering around 40C/104F compared to 45C/113F), and now the autumn rains are scarce too (still 29C/84F).
As for the veggies; not a bad season, but by no means amazing, with most crops failing to some degree. But saying that, we are not a commercial venture, so whilst frustrating, it’s just for fun, so hey, that’s just life.
Here is a selection of some homegrown goodies though…. with peppers, okra, aubergine, green cherry toms, and a few sloe.
