This morning I took advantage of the soft ground from the overnight rain and put my beanpoles in. I tried to do this a few weeks ago but the ground was rock hard so I didn't get very far!
I put 4 bean seedlings in. There are 2 each of 'Shiny Fardenlosa' (a green runner bean) and 'Market Wonder' - a NZ heritage climbing bean with a wide yellow flat pod. I just love fresh runner beans. I did freeze some last season but they are never the same as fresh. 2 more seedlings to come up yet, they went rotten so I resowed them, variety is 'American' also a NZ heritage climbing bean with flat wide green beans and with purple spots.
The ground still needs to be mulched as the surface gets very dry.
