Beans and Potatoes

Beside a vigorous growth of Rhubarb which we have been able to crop over the past month, most of the work this season has been preparation. Thanks to a recent spell of warm dry weather the ground has been prepared and the structure is in place for the Runner Beans, the recently sown French Beans are growing well in pots and re ready for planting on and the early crop of potatoes are flowering ready for lifting next month.

Seeds that were sown in April are only just starting to grow, the cold wet weather in April having held them back. If the warm weather continues we should be able to plant out most of the remaining crop in a week or two.
