I'm healthy and able bodied and I baulk at the thought of going to Chelsea or the Hampton Court Flower Show etc.

I love a day out looking at gardens , visiting galleries or just a day or two in London, but a day in the heat and crush of a summer flower show is not my idea of enjoyment 

Runner Beans AGAIN

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 19:34

I have grown white beans in the past but my usual favourites are a red flowered variety.

 However this year I had a  bad germination problem and ended up buying in some plants quite late in the day - Whiite Emergo - I know Verdun recommends them so I'm looking forward to seeing how they do. 

I agree with you David, about the rush to get them cropping - I think this is a relatively new phenomenon - I don't recall fellow allotmenteers back in the 70s expecting to pick runner beans in July. 

Bamboo

If you have too much bamboo and live within reach of East Sussex you might like to help out a new mum  http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/gallery_ipswich_bamboo_makes_a_tasty_treat_for_new_mum_mulan_the_red_panda_at_drusillas_park_1_3695480

OL 

Didn't get too warm here thanks to a breeze off the North Sea, nice and sunny and a comfortable 22.4C

Just picked the first of my Buerre de Roquencourt beans - they could probably have stayed on the plant a bit longer and grown a bit more - but we're hungry

I think it's just mischief and inquisitiveness

 It looked as if it was feeding from the surface of the stones.

That's what I'd do Philippa, or something similar - not that OH and I are likely to do that - we're happy as we are 

Friends arranged their wedding secretly, arranging to take niece and nephew out for a 'Special Day' in half term and said they were to wear their best clothes, and then they'd booked a restaurant and arranged meet up with family and friends without any of them knowing that the rest were turning up.    

The niece and nephew were the only family representatives at the ceremony - Registry Office staff provided witnesses - simple and elegant and no one was upset - everyone thought it was brilliant  

Not even the mothers were upset - gobsmacked yes, upset?  Not a bit
