I wonder if anybody can help. One or two of my runner beans had nearly reached the top of the sticks.They the started to shrivel. As I pulled the up hardly any root was visible. Any advice on what it may be or what I need to do?

Found that two of my tomatoes outside in pots have the lowest leaves eaten to lace by green, unmarked caterpillars approx 20mm long and 3mm in diameter. Would post a picture but had no camera to hand. They are just green caterpillars, but of what? Intend to attempt to rear a few to discover what they may become. Any suggestions?

Not sure where to put this, but hope this is OK
What weeds cause you the most problem.
At the moment I think it is bind weed, convulous (spelling, sorry).
Horse tail/mares tail I have learnt to live with.
Another is a creeping weed, and the roots are not too deep, but it does spread everywhere, and of course the grass.
Stinging nettles not too bad, as I have made some feed with them and have cut them down, but should have been wearing gloves.
My number one hate at the moment is bind weed.

What with the marestail and other weeds a bit fed up.  The bind weed, is strangling my runner beans and when I tried to pull it up, pulled up the bean plant by mistake, so will just have to leave it and hope the beans can cope with it.  All well, better get up to the allotment and start weeding. Had 3 runner beans yesterday, but they need rain.  The only thing I am picking at present is sweet peas, and some spinach.
