Runner beans picked - enough for supper and a double portion to freeze as well - I've been very pleased with them - they're the white flowered Emergo, as recommended by Verdun. Prolific long straight and tasty beans, not stringy at all and absolutely no pollination problems. Still producing enough for a meal most days
I've also fixed a net over the pond to keep the leaves off. Hopefully I've made it hedgehog and bird friendly and it will be closely monitored to make sure everyone is safe.
Now I'd better go to the farm shop, get a chicken to roast tomorrow and some mince for a cottage pie this evening - oh, need some potatoes too, and I'll pop into the GC and pick up some bird food.
Can I pick up anything for anyone?
