On Monday I sowed some broad bean Witkiem Manita which I had been given recently. If these don’t grow then I’m giving up on these as so far I’ve not had much success.
I also sowed some runner bean Kelvedon Marvel around the wigwam where only two Borlotti beans are growing. The runner beans that I sowed just over a month ago have nearly all reached the top of the canes and are now all flowering as you can see in the new header picture.
The rest of the week was mostly spent watering, weeding and picking lots more strawberries. Even better I’ve started picking raspberries, some of which have actually made it home to be eaten with vanilla ice cream!
Yesterday I harvested a dinner’s worth of potatoes Charlotte, carrots Royal Chantenay Red which are only a couple of inches long and two slightly bigger than golf ball size turnips Snowball.
A few spring onions were pulled along with some salad leaves
