The climbing beans are now in full swing

This year I planted the yellow ‘Goldenfield’

Plus my two favorite varieties:-  ‘Blauhilde’ which is purple

And the green ‘Blue Lake”

You can still add captions to this

(Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions)

As Susan wont be making her decision until next weekend.

Little bundles of flavour


Onion sets have arrived …


To wet to plant them to-day … maybe tomorrow
