no-beans

The bee problem I have not got.

But don't seem to have many beans this year.

But my next door neighbour has loads and his plants are strong and healthy.

Also don't ask, ha ha.  I accidentally planted a sun flower plant in between the bean plants and the bees love it, the other day I had 4 bees on one flower and others on the beans.

Maybe this could be the trick I've accidentally found?.

Will dig over and see what happens. Hopefully that will do the trick. Thanks.

Waterbutts thanks for replying,

but I do believe the ants have attacked the potatoes,

 I know its weird

they have treated the potatoes (hard to describe) like a runway all over each of them and through them,  and also covered in tiny white eggs? Used the same patch last couple of years didn't have them before?  think I need something to get rid of them?
