Help needed re my French Beans

They're just getting adjusted to new conditions - they would have got away quicker if you'd hardened them off - the roots will be growing - soon the tops will be growing  and they'll be fine.

I find that slug pubs work well in the veg patch.  I don't like to eat veg grown in ground that has been treated with slug pellets.

lupin pods

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 07:23

One of the first jobs I was ever entrusted with in the garden was shelling the lupin seeds.  My grandma had cut the stalks of seed pods when they'd gone brown but before they'd started to open, then she hung them up in the porch to dry.  

When the pods were dry they started to open and that when they were laid on newspaper and I had the job of opening the pods and putting the seeds into brown paper bags.

When Ma found out she was cross because she was worried that I might have eaten them, but I said Grandma had told me they would make me sick so of course I wouldn't eat them!

I was four.

Red rhubarb leaves

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 07:08

Hi SaskRob

We don't seem to have the rhubarb red leaf problem here in the UK thank goodness - google suggests that it's a problem of Northern America - you'd be better enquiring on a US site. 

Over here if the leaves are going red it's usually drought or because it's late in the season and the leaves are dying off.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
