One of my favourite bean varieties is Blauhilde
a purple climbing bean. Really prolific and very healthy.
I planted a few in a pot just a week ago, and during the warm weather in the last couple of days they just thrived, so I planted them out today.
I am growing these climbing beans up the same frame as some sweet peas. I am trying to encourage the pollinating insects nowadays.
Elsewhere, my broad beans Masterpiece
are about a foot tall now. Enjoying the warm weather. I think I might plant a second planting just to follow them along. Another reason for a second planting of broad beans is that if the black fly infest this first crop, they will probably leave my second crop alone!
I decided to plant some of my tomatoes outdoors now. They have been hardening off outside in their pots for a few days now, but I think the time is right. You must make your own decision as to whether you think all danger of frost is over.
