Not that we need any help with that in our house!! But I popped up the allotment this morning to do some harvesting and to generally see how everything was behaving itself. Very well from what I saw. I harvested a load of French beans, which I have now taken the tops off and they are now in the freezer until we need them for dinner. I managed to harvest 2lb 12oz of Dwarf Purple French beans and 3lb 10oz of Climbing Green French beans. So I think that’s enough to keep us going for quite a while. There are still lots more to come. It doesn’t matter if your french beans go too far, they don’t get stringy like Runner beans do. I then dug up some Potatoes, mainly rogue ones that I forgot last year. I got some rather sizeable ones, so that’s potatoes for dinner sorted out for the next few days. Then finally I had a look round my plots to see how all the other veg were getting on. The Pumpkins are growing very well. I have loads growing, all of varying sizes.
Also my Butternut Squash are growing well. I have loads of flowers and I found 3 little ones growing. Hopefully I’ll get loads this year as they keep for ages in a frost free place over the winter. We do like to roast them with chicken.
But everything else is doing well, so I’m a very happy little lass. I also harvest some more Cucamelons from the greenhouse, they’re prolific growers, and I’ve got loads of Tomatoes growing to. So all in all it’s progressing very nicely. Long may it last.
