Given the conditions I'd say that toms pre July isn't bad going.

The battery is for scale - I didn't grow that.

I came across this on Facebook and wondered if anyone had tried them.

Essentially a beer trap although they sell malt powder to put in them - It would be easy enough to make a home made version of them I think..

I planted all the Brighstone beans kindly sent to me by ACE last year along with a couple of other varieties of french beans and despite the really rather awful weather for growing most things this variety has massively outperformed all the other types I have in the ground.  Lots of the others are struggling at the bottom of their poles taking slug damage and generally not getting going ... but the Brighstone beans are almost all 6 foot up their poles and beginning to make flower buds.  This is a real victory because the climbing borlottis I have tried to grow before behave like the other varieties and struggle to get up the poles.

So my question is this.  Everything I've read about Brighstone beans has led me to believe that they're a dwarf or bush bean ... but these ones from ACE are definitely climbers.  Are there two different strains?

In January I stated this:

Why is it I am  thinking  that 2016 might be a testing year for us gardeners as already there is a lot of stuff out of kilter with this non-seasonal weather!


I don't know about you guys but in my case I have indeed found this to be the case in many respects, what do you think?
