We have no frosts forecast for the next few nights but I’m reluctant to put out the climbing beans because there are very strong winds on the horizon which won’t do them any good before they get properly established.
The first lot of broad beans are now showing small pods so I gave them a potash feed to help them along
We love to eat fresh peas straight from the plant so this afternoon I sowed more peas to follow on from the sixty or so already coming along. I’ll do another sowing in mid June and hopefully we’ll have fresh peas right through till the first frosts.
Today's pic shows some celery plants in a big square pot. I have three pots of self-blanching celery but I do find it gets quite stringy unless picked early and watered well. We get some small sticks for salads and have some as a steamed vegetable but much of it ends up as soup flavouring.
