Goodness me it has been HOT the past few days! Still, with peas and beans bulging at the seams in their pots more than ready to be planting out there was no putting off the sweaty exertions of stringing the final two wigwams.
So I have avoided the heat of the day and spend a relaxed and productive couple of evenings at the Hill with the company of blackbirds and a fearless robin.
I planted out the rest of the broad beans too, and was thinking how well they were doing when I spotted Carl and Wendy's by-the-gate which are already in flower - early broadies for them!
The next 'big' job was to put the bean canes in a 'V' shape in between the end T pieces that structure I already have fixed in place. With the supporting wires taut between the T's, all I had to do was push the canes into the ground in the middle, alternating to each side and attaching to the horizontal wire. So now they are ready to be planted up with climbing beans in the middle, and dwarf beans at the bed edges.
Now I could have spent every waking hour weeding - especially the 'messy' plot edges, and I have taken all the dandelion heads off - but with the compost bin full to overflowing there is no room until I move on the the next strenuous job. Emptying the other compost bin and revealing all that lovely compost.
