Sunflower doesn’t like the cold

Monday, August 29th, 2011

This sunflower might manage to open one day if it gets warm enough! This is a flower that appeared on it’s own!


What I’ve just picked on my plot

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Some beans – five different types including green, runner, broad, purples ones and borlotti beans!


I’d not picked the broad beans when I took this snap though!

There were also a few more spuds that were discovered when I was digging over another bed. It started raining then so I came in as it was already freezing and damp. It really is like autumn at the moment.
