Visited the plot after a two week lay-off due to awful weather and a week away in Dorset, we picked some really long beans along with the usual shorter ones. We don`t usually let them get too long but we cooked a few thinking they might be past their best but they were delicious, perhaps a tiny bit less tender. The beans and peas are now finished and the plot is bare ready for tidying.
The Bramleys didn`t crop as well as last year this is about a quarter of the crop this year. Down by about a half I would have guessed.
I am going to plant some mixed tulip bulbs along with other flowers on the plot as soon as the soil is less claggy.
