Weed them and reap! Sorry about the pun. Some lovely Beurre De Rocquencort yellow French beans for the freezer
Shlightly sozzled on the plot (hic)
Yet more beans harvested!
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.
Harvest continues and the French beans discovered in hiding. Yet more courgettes - the yellow ones look really dramatic - and then I noticed a climbing French bean. Hiding beneath the leaves were about half a carrier bag full!
Harvest starts for real with beans and peas. Planting cabbages and rotovating. Can anything kill off horsetail?
Rain, watering growbags and beans top tip.
Well the summer didn't last long, but I still got a couple of hours in.
Having been away for 2 days in France I was straight down to the plot.
A new neighbour - Ben the rat on the allotment site and planting runner and French beans.
