This rain has really battered my poor hanging baskets. 

My geraniums don't seem to want to to flower. They've got lots of sun, they've been fed. Not sure what else I can do!

the few tomatoes i have are going red?

Had outdoor tomatoes for months. Many pounds for family and friends.  Really tasty. Grew so well that canes broke.

Plums small with a lot suffering maggots. Blackberries a good size as previous years.

You should follow my way of gardening. Talk sweetly, regularly and look at your seedlings etc.  The thing you say is “grow you b***er or your straight into the compost bin”. Seems to work quite well.

Still plenty of tomatoes outside. Seem to be suffering from nutrient deficiency but main tomato is fine. 

Interstingly blight started on on the 2nd for the last two years but not this. I am however growing supposedly blight resistant varieties.
