Full of promise for produce

We have more kinds of potatoes growing this year, in the ground, bags and pallet planters.

We are trying out some ‘shelling beans’ this year, growing up our super-tall wigwam. Some are Greek giganti beans and we are trying borlotto and some other spotty beans. We won’t harvest the green pods for eating but let them dry and harvest them at the end of the season as beans inside dry pods. We will also have wigwams for runner and green beans in other places.

Second try at sowing seeds. We sowed a lot of seeds a few weeks ag but had a very poor germination rate. It might have been too hot, too cold but there were some suspicious-looking (child sized) foot-shaped holes in the bed too. Also, if people water the seed beds without a rose on the can it washes the small seeds too deep. This time we have added some small plants too. Fingers crossed!
