Tuesday 10th September 2013 – Beans, beans, and yet more beans.

Well the runner beans have practically finished, so after I’d harvest what I could I pulled them out and put them in the compost heap. Runner beans are very high maintenance, not as easy as French Beans at all. They’re … Continue reading
