Amazing the difference a good mount of rain has made to the growth rate of all the plants on the plot. I visited today after some days unwell with a tummy bug and was greeted with the scent of a large amount of sweet peas that needed cutting. Growing underneath them I cut my first small round courgette “Eight Ball” a plant given to me by a fellow plot holder
I note that the pot marigolds “Flighty`s Favourites” are flowering at their best at different times this is good news, my thanks to Mark Willis for the tip of marking the plants that I want to save seed from in the Autumn. I used a small cable tie for each.
I am growing two varieties of runner beans as the main title suggests and the Wisley Magic will be ready to pick before Enorma but not by much and in about a or two, how pleasing runner beans with new buttered Charlotte potatoes.
The scent is heavenly
A real doozy of a marigold
