As the weather is forecast to be dull and wet from tomorrow through mid-week I decided to do what I posted about last Thursday regarding the Barlotto beans. I’ve now got around eighty pods at home ranging in colour from red through to light brown. As they’re nice and dry they shouldn’t go musty as they sometimes do.
This morning I picked the last of the sweet corn. I was surprised that I got any cobs as these were the third lot I sowed. They were small and could have done with more time and sunshine to ripen properly. I’ll leave the stems in the ground and pull them up after I’ve emptied the compost heap at the end of February or early March. I’ll flatten then lay them criss-cross on the ground in the bottom of the compost bin and start the new heap over the top.
The blue asters (Michaelmas daisies) are now in full flower and buzzing with bees.
Have a good week!
