What a colossal dope!
This is how my broad beans looked today when I arrived at the plot. Oh oh! They don't look too happy since I sprayed them with the bug gun....! Then it hit me. I had filled that bug gun with weedkiller to have a go at the bindweed.....! What a colossal dope I am.......!!!!
My only excuse is that I am very distracted by some bad news about a friend at the moment.
We went to the plot this afternoon to strim down all the nettles and tidy up the paths. It does look better now.
I also put some replacement seeds in with the Borlotti beans, Cosse Violette beans, Sugar Snap Peas; and another two rows of Greenshaft peas. And all through the sweetcorn and squash beds I have sown French Dwarf Beans Cropper Teepee...my version of a three sisters bed. I find using climbing beans doesn't work if you want the sweetcorn and the beans fresh. The climbing beans wrap themselves all round the sweetcorn and you can't snap the cobs off without sacrificing the beans.
As well as that short visit to the plot I spent hours on tidying the front garden. I have done just under half of what needed doing, so tomorrow I hope to do a bit more. The soil is so dry you wouldn't believe we'd had so much rain the last few days.
