Despite a poor year more or less with soft fruit because of all the rain this summer (such a change from previous summers in London which suffered with drought and high heat!), we have high hopes for the pepper patch – which last weekend we potted out into the patch cleared of winter grown garlic.
And actually, to be totally honest, not all soft fruit has been a wash out. The black currant bush in the back patch which grows along the railway path was a wonder this year and produced almost 3 kilos of fruit!! I’m going to take hard wood cuttings in the winter to propagate a few more bushes of this monster-producer!
