Welcome to Lisa via Bloglovin - glad to have you reading.
Apart from my leeks which are tiddly to say the least, everything else is at long last, in the process of harvesting.
The new bit of garden by the garage wall (west facing) has done very well. The tomatillo's are dropping off by themselves so I will need to check those daily. The Bambino tomatoes are ripening daily and are lovely and sweet.
The aubergine I got off B. has produced a few fruits. Despite it looking on its last legs, it does get fed!
I was given some beans which are purple and look just like yours - please can you tell me what variety they are? They taste very good - either cooked, or chopped raw into salads.ReplyDelete
The purple ones I am growing (and there are many different ones) are Royalty. The Seeds are light brown and about the size of a haricot. Other varieties are Blauhilde and Cosse Violette,purple cascade. Blauhilde is easy to purchase whereas the other two are heritage and not so easy to get hold of.Delete
Oops... sorry Angela. Wrong sort. See the answer below to Frugal in Derbyshire!Delete
Wow, your garden looks so bountiful! I hope you enjoy all of the lovely produce :)ReplyDelete
Thank you. It has been hard work this year due to the heat (last year the rain) can't win can we!!Delete
Your tomatoes look good, mine are awful this year! What types are bean are you growing? I like to try different types each year apart from my usuals.ReplyDelete
Oops... told a fib, only 2 different types of climbing bean. The first is the dark purple pods of Blue Coco. The green with purple marbling are Major Cook's. Both are only available by joining the Heritage Seed Library as far as I know. The runner bean is Desiree? Obviously, the 3rd type of bean Cobra, doesn't look to have made it and I sowed some more Major Cook's.ReplyDelete
