I'm only growing runners and parsnips this year, turning over my biggest veg bed to a Salvia Veridiun bed.

i do have a gooseberry plant that Dove kindly gave me, two different raspberries and rhubarb as well, love the fruit.

I am sitting in a big armchair, legs on a pouffé , next today's bed, when suddenly realised I was dribbling right down my chin, dropped off in two minutes

Growing Runner Beans.

I didn't understand what you meant in the OP, with all the messing about with ear phones or something. Just put one bean in each pot of compost. Not four.

sow at the end of April or beginning of May, for planting out in June.

Are these Cosmos seedlings leggy?

We had snow and hail, and gales yesterday and today, I looked at mine in the cold greenhouse and they are fine. Plenty of time to sow some more then you'll get flowers through to first frosts again.

Terrible here for slugs, I only grow them in pots now so I can use a few pellets on them.

I don't pot mine until the have the first pair of real leaves, then I curl then round until the seed leaves are slightly above the soil.

To cold in Devon too, I think we had a thread on when to sow runners, everyone (almost!) sows at the end of April.

Not in the greenhouse Fishy, they like cold.they take a couple of years to flower, but do make sure you slug proof them. My little shoots are just coming up now. They will get about six little slug pellets on them.,

Move it now?

I love that..swoon like a Victorian miss!
I have lots in the garden here, mostly grown from seed, never seen one self seed, nothing self seeds here, don't know why, marigold sometimes do, and lots of little foxgloves, but not much else.
I had some aquilegia chewed by vine weevil last year, and my daughters were completely eaten by tiny green caterpillars.
