Beans, the boss and the three sisters
Weed them and reap! Sorry about the pun. Some lovely Beurre De Rocquencort yellow French beans for the freezer
Last of the runner bean supporting tipis and a chicken controversy. I want to be able to keep chickens on the allotment
Shlightly sozzled on the plot (hic)
Yet more beans harvested!
Enough is enough so goodbye to a bean tipi. We have enough runner beans to feed ourselves and an army
A weekend of harvesting and blanching and freezing. On Saturday we gathered a carrier bag of French beans, one of broad beans, some runner beans and yet more courgettes.
Where were those beans hiding yesterday? Anyway harvested those and then the yellow mini squashes that were fast becoming maxi squash! Laid them on the table to cure.
Yet more harvesting and weeding, Back at the ranch, sorting of potatoes into those that will store a while and those to use now as the slugs have started eating them. We store them in hessian sacks, which let them breathe but keeps out the light.
No rain to speak of but the harvest continues Dorian peas seem to have large pods but are a little tricky to work out when they are ready.
Harvesting the last of the broad beans in the sunshine and Early Onward peas
Basically everything is under control. Planting dwarf beans and green manure growing
Harvest starts for real with beans and peas. Planting cabbages and rotovating. Can anything kill off horsetail?
