All the climbing beans have now been picked and shelled. The big ones are runner beans St.George, the black ones French climbing beans Cobra and the others Barlotto Lingua di Fuoco.
On Friday I pulled the plants up and added them to the compost heap, put the canes away then dug the area over.
That just leaves the Oca. The foliage is looking okay, although there’s been no sign of any flowers.
Reading this webpage I see that I need to wait until after it’s been frosted, hopefully sometime during November, before lifting the tubers.
It’s good to see see blue asters Michaelmas daisies now flowering, and buzzing with bees.
It’s a sunny Sunday morning so I’ll be off to look round the plot before going across to the horticultural society trading shed for a chat, along with a cup of tea and a couple of biscuits which I’ll be sharing with any of my four-legged friends if they’re there.
Have a good week!
