A productive morning up at the lottie today. Slightly cooler start to the day so able to get a bit of groundwork done before the sun broke through and the temperature rose. The French beans and two rows of peas have gone in. The beans are a mix of three varieties, “blue lake”, “cosse di violette” and “neckagold”.They are green,purple and yellow podded respectively. The pea variety is “onward”.

I also managed to prepare the ground and plant my sweetcorn. A variety called “marshall’s honeydew improved” that I have grown for 3 years now and give a good harvest of VERY sweet cobs. At the moment 32 plants have gone in and I will add more to give me a 6 x 6 block (sweetcorn is planted in blocks to assist the wind pollination of the cobs).
