On Thursday with my green wall of climbing beans leaning ever more precariously I decided to pick all the beans, pull up the plants to add to the compost heap and put away the canes. I did that as the forecast is for some blustery weather with winds gusting up to 40 mph on Tuesday, which I’m sure would have toppled them.
I was surprised to find that I filled two plastic bags to bring home and sort out, which I did this morning. The two long beans are over a foot long and as you can see the tin is already half filled with assorted shelled beans.
Although the ground was rather sticky on Friday morning I forked over the area. Whilst doing so I was joined by a robin which I stood and watched as it found small insects to eat just inches away from my wellies. It was joined by a second one, which came and went a few times, and twice they chased away a third one.
Have a good week!
