Everything died in the hot weather. This was obviously all my fault somehow.
My mum said that all her plants died too, and she's a legend of a horticulturist. I thought that fact might save me from too much castigation, but no. I have killed all the crop, apparently.

Anyway, we've restarted with some more basil and coriander and mint. I'd love to grow tomatoes properly sometime. Tomatoes just hate me.

My apple tree normally delivers a massive crop, but this year a grand total of 6... No visible signs of any problem with the tree, and those 6 are perfectly good apples, but baffled why it didn't grow properly this year.

Dear Thumped, what do I do now?

There was a late frost around May that fucked the apple trees my parents have. They usually get a great crop from 3 or 4 trees but the blossoms were killed around then so this year there's barely anything. Perhaps yours were similarly hit.

As to what to do, they'll probably recover for next year.

we're overloaded with apples this year, i never got round to thinning the cookers out.

Same here - saw the wasps had taken out a few and i was like 'thanks lads' - All I ever do is about two days of making Jam that gets gifted out over the winter. I probably should look at a second recipie this year, see what other preserves can be done.
