Pottering and achieved

Managed to buy a fishing landing net for a very good price in the sale and made my own pigeon guards so they won’t eat my newly planted kohlrabi. Have planted green and purple as I love them. I heard purple food was really good for you so planted more of those.
Kohlrabi is right next door to my purple sprouting – maybe I’ve gone all purple without realising.


But couldn’t do all this without this piece of kit.

Wow what a present!


Been at the allotment working hard on my bean section today. Made my berymidย  (not pyrimid) and planted a whole bed of dwarf beans (Runner Bean ‘Hestia’ (Dwarf)ย –ย A superb variety that is ideal for small gardens and large containers, reaching only 45cm (18″) tall. Dwarf Runner Bean ‘Hestia’ produces good yields of long, straight, stringless pods with a good flavour. This attractive, bicoloured variety begins cropping early in the season, carrying the pods above the soil to avoid disease. Height: 45cm (18″). Spread: 30cm (12″).ย Companion planting: Try growing runner beans with sweet peas to attract pollinating insects to the flowers, and Nasturtiums to draw aphids away from your crop) Polestar Runners.
Then another plot holder turned up having bought me this present. How amazing is that. ….
Great community at our allotments.

Building my first bean structure

Watch this space……watched how to make various bean structures….now to do it.

So here it is….๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

imageStringless runners (Runner Bean ‘Polestar’ –ย British bred for high yields and reliability, Runner Bean ‘Polestar’ has become a gardeners favourite. The stringless, fleshy pods are produced in clusters of fleshy, flavoursome beans reaching 25cm in length. This RHS AGM variety is early to flower and crops well)ย planted in and now hope my structure holds them all up. The hazel is slightly higher than I had anticipated however couldn’t bear to saw it off as it looks beautiful. Could always fly flags from it! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽŒ๐ŸŽŒ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšฉโค๏ธ
