Morning all, well another drizzly day here in Kent. We had such a lovely sunny weekend. The up side is Trevs lawn seed is just poking its head through so he's a happy bunny. I'm a little down as I only have one runner plant left, thought I'd left the slugs at the old house. The runner bean is a little special as it is a seed from my dads gardening years ago. When he died 14 years ago we tidied his garden up and set the veg to flowers for my mum. My sister kept a pod and has each year grown the beans for dad. She only kept a single pod which had 4 seeds, only 3 germinated. I planted them out as they were going strong, the dogs snapped one off so I had 2 left. Yesterday the darn slugs / snails ate another. Fingers crossed for the last one. If it pulls through I'm going to save 2 pods.
Does anyone know how to name the type. He used to grow Red Rum.
