Arriving home from Naples at 11pm, I was very disappointed that the dark meant I couldn't check on my garden :( And the next day it was raining, a lot! But I grabbed my umbrella and went out for a quick check which was quite disappointing - although one set of tomatoes are doing well, the others have produced no new flowers (and therefore no fruits), the spinach and beetroot seedlings have been munched by slugs, and I could only find two beans of maybe 1cm each. Not what I expected after what feels like an eternity away.
