It has really been quite an incredible few months of weather. I was only knee high to a grasshopper in 1976, but Stan assures me that we haven't had a growing season like this, since that renowned heat wave 30 years ago.

Our season will run through to early October, when the quality declines rapidly with dropping light levels. Under glass (rather than plastic) it might be possible to start picking by mid-June... continued
